In the research profile of the Department of Machine and Product Design there can be found basic and applied research, just as experimental research and development.

Machine Design

  • Design and development of machine elements, components and machine systems,
  • Modern methods and tools of computer aided design,
  • Determining the deformations, stress and thermal state of structural elements; structural optimization,
  • Tribology behaviour of polymer / elastomer and steel sliding pairs,
  • The behaviour and characteristics of condition of polymer structural elements,
  • The failure analysis, the analysis of tribologic and dynamic conditions of spatial gears,
  • Development of flat wheel harmonic gear drive.

Industrial Design Engineering

  • Genetic algorythms in design and in optimization of structural elements and design processes,
  • The analysis and optimization of design processes in terms of time, cost, resources,
  • The development and expansion of autogenetic design theory,
  • Development of inventive problem solving methods in design,
  • Designecology – the theory and practice of environmental design.

Agricultural Machine Design

  • The tasks, possibilities, and technical solutions of cultivation machines in the computer supported agriculture,
  • The analysis of the interaction between rubber track wheels and soil in order to lower the harmful impact on soil structure,
  • Design and examination of soil-protective and environment-friendly cultivating machines,
  • Mechanization tasks of possible technologies for growing and utilizing bio-fuels,
  • Development of tools to moderate the harmful effects of climate change,
  • Real-time measuring and control of intelligent implements,
  • Applications of modern designer’s knowledge and softwares; we maintain close contacts with the domestic research institutes, manufacturing and trading companies through the agricultural machinery application-technologies projects of the Design Group of Agricultural Machines at the Department.
