Science Activities

Scientific activity of the chair is aimed at  solving problems of ecological safety of land and water areas, health and safety in the construction industry, the development of scientific foundations and lectures on subjects for masters and specialists.

I. Flooding and soil pollution in built up areas. Mathematical modeling of filtration with the migration of contaminants in complex hydro-geological conditions.

II. Environmental potable water profile, problems of water treatment technology, process multi-modeling in the system “polymer membrane – water,” including calculation of chemical potentials, application ofoperation-structural analysis of  processes, membrane technology of the filtrate toxic substance disposal.

III. Monitoringof  air pollution in Ukraine. Structured by climatic and meteorological conditions emission simulation.
