Main Directions of Scientific Investigations

The main scientific directions of the RTL CETPESS are research and development in the field of build­ing thermal engineering walling; microclimate of residential, public and industrial buildings; engineering equipment for systems of heat and ventilation and conserve heat and energy resources in the construc­tion, utilities and other industries of national economy of the Republic of Belarus.


Provided Services

In accordance with the scientific direction of the main provided services are following: research of thermal physical properties of new constructive materials used in the Republic of Belarus for amend­ing the thermal protective properties and development of methods of calculations of thermal-and-hu­midity operation of the enclosure constructions; experimental study of the buildings and constructions of various purpose conditions and development of recommendations for thermal rehabilitation and im­provement of engineering systems at minimum cost of energy resources and the efficient organization of air flow; development of energy balances of enterprises and the specific requirements of fuel-energy resources (FER) for manufactured products; conduct an energy audit of industrial and civil objects; de­velopment of measures for the efficient use of energy resources; analysis of the microclimate of various facilities and develop recommendations for its maintenance; the study of drying processes and ther­mal processing of building materials and products; research and development of systems aero - and hy­dro-mechanical cleaning dust emissions and pneumatic transport at the enterprises processing raw ma­terials; development of methods, schemes and facilities for management of centralized heating schemes on the basis of new devices and technologies.


Major Achievements

RTL CETPESS maintains close ties with the RUE "Stroytekhnorm", "Institute of Housing - NIPTIS n.a. Ataev S. S.", UE "BelNIIS", JSC "Mapid", Shandong Computer Science Center (China), ITME of NAS of Belarus, etc.

The developments of RTL CETPESS are used in the creation of projects of normative documents in thermal rehabilitation of buildings; establish the microclimate of premises, improvements in the per­formance of ventilation systems, cleaning and aspiration, saving heat energy, etc.

The laboratory has a modern technical base for research.
