Department of Transport Vehicles

The Department of Transport Vehicles has a long history saturated with renaming, structural changing and equipping. Nowadays, it graduates specialist in land transport, power engineering, machine building, materials science, etc.

Years spent at the department enable student to immerse in profession, as this structural unit primarily focuses on research and development. In the Design Bureau “System Design of Transport Vehicles”, they are working on projects of urban high-safety vehicles, high-speed vehicles, and social transport. Students are winners of various competitions. They have published dozens of papers and obtained patents of the Russian Federation.

Within its activity, the department cooperates with many educational and research institutions and industrial and transport enterprises across and beyond the Penza Region. It takes part in organising and holding national and international scientific, technical and practical conferences. Its technological advances are introduced in various enterprises, e.g. a 3.5-tonne fork lift truck was selected for mass production at AMO ZIL; hydraulic vortex heat generators designed and registered by the department are used at various enterprises.

A number of fundamentally new products are under development. They are an autonomous vortex steam generator, a heat generator for heating several dissimilar liquids (including fire hazardous ones, such as oil), a thermodynamic dispersant, ionization and ozonation devices based on nano processes in heterogeneous vortex flows, a bubble-activated washing machine with a hydraulic heater, hydro-cavitation cleaning devices for mechanical engineering products, a device increasing oxygen content in liquids, etc. All devices operate using effects that occur in two-phase gas-liquid vortex flows.

Invented devices are regularly presented at various exhibitions in Germany, China, Belgium, Kazakhstan, and Italy. They have been awarded with 18 medals, including 14 medals of the All-Russian Exhibition Complex, 4 gold medals at international exhibitions (China, Germany, Belgium), a special prize of the Korean Industrialists Association, diplomas and medals of organising committees.
