Chair «HGV & TSER»
The chair «Heat and Gas supply, Ventilation and use of Thermal Secondary Energy Resources» of the Kharkov national university of civil engineering and architecture has been formed in 1930 and is one of oldest at university. In premilitary years the chair which was called yet «Heating, ventilation and introduction of the district heating system», was headed by prof. Ilik I. M. One of the first cogeneration-based district heating system in the USSR has been created in Kharkov under direction of Gorelik J. I. – senior lecturer of the chair.
Since 1944 until 1949 the chair had been lead with the senior lecturer Cand.Tech.Sci. supervised Lobaev B. N. who after gaining a doctor's degree has headed the chair with the same name of the Kiev construction institute and institute SRISTE simultaneously.
Since 1949 on 1989 the chair was managed by Kolobkov Pavel Sergeevich, a Dr.Sci.Tech., the professor, the honored worker of a science of Ukraine, one of founders of a scientific and technical direction «Use of thermal secondary power resources».
Since 1989 until now the chair is lead by Redko Alexander Fedorovich, a Dr.Sci.Tech., the professor, the academician of Academy of building sciences, a member of advisory council SCA, a member of several scientific councils, the honors pupil of higher education of Ukraine supervises.
Since 2000 the chair carries out preparation of masters.
40 employees work on chair now: 7 professors (including 3 Dr.Sci.Tech.), 17 senior lecturers, 10 assistants, 2 post-graduate students and 4 employees of auxiliary educative structure.
Recognized not only in Ukraine, but also far from its limits are such leading experts in their fields as professors Redko A. F., Andonev V. S., Djachuk V. V., Nikolaenko V. E., Taradaj A. M., Shushlyakov A. V., Shchekin I. R. All of them have a wide experience of scientific, technical and practical activities in different fields of the industry and an economy that allows chair to prepare experts in a wide profile of activity: heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, a heat supply, gas supply, gas transportation, dust and gas purification equipment, use of thermal secondary energy resources and nonconventional sources of energy, energy saving up technologies and energy audit.
SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY OF CHAIR
- The basic directions of research work:
- engineering of new and improvement of existing gas consuming equipment, and also the equipment for burning of low-calorie kinds of fuel by a method of a boiling layer;
- engineering of methods and devices for highly effective and energy saving dust and gas separation in the industry;
- engineering and introduction in manufacture of energy saving up technologies and energy audit;
- improvement of techniques of designing and engineering of new heat-shielding protections of public and industrial buildings;
- engineering of heat supply systems with use of nonconventional energy sources.
Works are carried out using both state budgetary and contractual basis; students are actively involved in performance of works.
EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY OF CHAIR
The chair conducts preparation of experts and masters by the use of highly skilled teachers and experts who have long-term pedagogical, scientific and a industrial experience which allow them not only to pass on theoretical knowledge to students, but also to cultivate in them true interest to research and industrial work.
Students of 4th year in lecture auditorium (2010)
Part of studies in audiences and industrial practice of students are spent at chair branches in communal enterprise «Kharkov's thermal networks» and in joint-stock company «Shebelinkagazdobytcha». For students who study at specialization «Arrangement of natural gas fields», a number of scientifically-practical studies is carried in the Kharkov branch of scientific research institute daughter company «Naukaneftegaz» using its highly skilled employees, and they pass research-and-production practice both in UkrNIIgaz, and at manufacturing enterprises of an oil and gas complex of east region (GFD «Harkovgazdobycha», GFD «Shebelinkagazdobycha», GFD «Poltavagazdobycha).
Chair branches also are the base enterprises where our graduates distribute to. At branches of the chair all teachers constantly get improvement of their professional skill by the training, the results of which adopt into educational process and are used in term and graduation projecting.
The state examination boards at work
Educational work with students is being carried out by curators of educational groups. The state of teaching and educational process is constantly supervised by head of the chair and dean's office.
In April, 2011 on the basis of chair «HGV & TSER» KNUCEA in the fifth consecutive time the All-Ukrainian student's Olympic games of a speciality «Heat and gas supply and ventilation» were carried out. Students of our chair repeatedly became winners and prize-winners of the Olympic games of last years, winners of competitions of student's scientific works and were marked among the best young experts of Ukraine.
