We are glad to inform about the new member of UABio - the Institute of Engineering Thermophysics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine!
Institute of Engineering Thermophysics of NAS of Ukraine was founded in 1947 on the basis of the Institute of Energy of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukranian SSR. The original name was “Institute of Heat and Power Engineering”, after reorganization in 1964 it was Institute of Engineering Thermophysics of the Academy of Sciences of the Ukranian SSR (IET).
Institute of Heat and Power Engineering was carrying out the research on the improvement of heat engines, the intensification of heat transfer processes in different technical devices and the research on the energy-technological using Ukrainian’s brown coal. Then the Institute began working in new scientific directions such as: high-rate heat and mass transfer, mining thermophysics, measurement of heat processes, thermoprotection of high-temperature devices.
Now the main directions of the scientific and technical activities of IET NASU are::
- thermophysical research in heat and power equipment with using traditional, renewable and alternative energy sources, developing methods for improving efficiency, reliability and environmental safety of this equipment;
- the theory of heat and mass transfer and its application for increasing the efficiency of the processes of heat transfer and heat using in machines and apparatuses of new equipment;
- the theory of heat and mass transfer for the improvement of energy efficiency of existing heat technologies, the development of fundamentally new resource-saving heat technologies;
- the theory of measurement of thermal characteristics, the creation of new thermophysical tools and systems for monitoring the state of technical objects and technologies.
IET NAS of Ukraine is the co-organizer of the international conference "Biomass for Energy", which annually brings together more than 200 participants from Ukraine and abroad to share experiences and discuss pressing issues of the bioenergy sector of Ukraine.
