Course abstract

The course introduces with linkages between the research and the principles of design used by the constructors of machines, contributes for the incorporation of the knowledge, obtained by forest technologists, into the technology design, and helps to carry out research of the technical factors impact on the forest environment and contrary. It provides preconditions for the substantiation of forest-technical requirements, connected to the new forest machinery design.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

During the course students will acquire:
• Knowledge about the stages in new forest machinery design, the development process, and the methods of the trials;
• Skills to substantiate the forest-technical requirements for any newly-involved forest equipment, to prepare the necessary information on the peculiarities in the use of the newly-involved machinery;
• Competence on the necessary forest machinery technical innovation in accordance with the general technical trends.
