Scientific research in the Department of Technical and technological sciences is being carried out in two laboratories. The head of Department is Dr. Miljan Milošević, senior research associate.
In the latter Fifty years later, medicine and health care have changed significantly in largely depend on high-tech solutions for prevention, diagnosis, disease treatment and rehabilitation. Rapid development of technique and technology, encouraged development of information and communication technologies has conditioned the need for systematization of knowledge and constant upgrading in order to master the increasingly complex processes. Study of the complexity of forms and multifunctionality in the human body is a challenge for both doctors and engineers. Bioengineering is a new multidisciplinary field that includes several scientific fields – technology, medicine, natural sciences (biology, chemistry, mathematics), informatics. Ultimate the goal of this new area is the general improvement of living conditions. U Bioengineering laboratories are dedicated to the development of computer methods and software for application and solution of various problems in the field of bioengineering. Research is largely based on finite element methods applied to solids, liquids, modeling physical fields and various related problems. On that one way we try, using modern technologies, to model everything occurs in the human body and to predict possible risks through simulations and complications. We develop software for medical and industrial applications, by developing scientific and innovative projects, such as the development of methods and software for specific modeling of blood flow and plaque growth for patients – integrating clinical imaging with computer modeling. Some more of our areas research is also: simulation of the respiratory system, simulation of muscle function, sports biomechanics, drug transport simulation, optimal stent design and application of nanotechnologies in medicine, prediction of tumor growth, medical processing image, development of devices with application in biomedicine, etc.
In the conditions of modern economy, competitiveness has become an imperative for the survival and prosperity of companies and entrepreneurs. In order to achieve and maintain competitiveness, constant changes are needed through the development and application of innovations, and the application of information technologies is one of the key factors in the accelerated growth of productivity and economic development. On the other hand, the interaction of the economy with the environment and the resulting ecological crisis require a holistic approach to innovation. In the Laboratory for the Application of Information Technologies in Engineering, our goal is to innovate products and services that include significant improvements in: technical and service characteristics of the product as a whole, components and materials, embedded software, customization, and personalization of products. known customer with the application of new technologies). We also aim to innovate processes and technologies by applying a new or significantly improved production process or distribution method, in order to reduce production or distribution costs, improve quality or produce a new or significantly improved product, while reducing energy use, emissions greenhouses and environmental impact. Based on extensive experience in the field of finite element methods, we work on algorithms and computer models applied in various industrial conditions (development of specialized software for dam safety analysis, coupled FEM-SPH solvers which are the most practical solution for fluid-structure interaction analysis, development and installation of material models for granular materials (primarily asphalt) as well as high-plastic and hyper-elastic materials, determination of damage parameters and verification of FEM models). In the field of energy use, we focus on energy policy, energy efficiency in industry and buildings, innovative mechanisms for financing energy efficiency projects, application of innovative technologies in the construction and renovation of residential and commercial buildings during the transition to near-zero buildings. Important support for all these activities are research that deals with: the economic effects of innovative solutions that are developed through projects, economic growth and development, project management and financial management of innovation projects.
