Short summary (English)

The research field of the department encompasses influence of load, geometry, material, lubricant and working conditions on wear processes, critical breakdown and lifetime of machine parts, in particularly of spur and worm gears. Our personnel are familiar with application of strain gauge technology which is often used for research and cooperation purposes. We are capable to conduct static FEM analysis of certain machine parts and simple design structures.

Short summary (Croatian)

Djelatnici katedre se bave istraživanjem utjecaja opterećenja, geometrije, materijala, maziva i uvjeta rada na načine trošenja, gubitka funkcije i vijeka trajanja strojnih dijelova, a poglavito zupčanika s ravnim zubima i pužnih parova. Kako za potrebe istraživanja, tako i za potrebe suradnje, bave se i raznim mjerenjima primjenom tenzometrijske metode. U istraživanjima strojnih dijelova i jednostavnih konstrukcija koriste i statičku analizu metodom konačnih elemenata.
