Department of Thermophysics and Molecular Physics

In 1994, two departments related to the profile: the Department of Physical Hydrodynamics and the Department of Thermophysics were combined into one department of Thermophysics and Molecular Physics, which also included part of the teachers and employees of the Department of General Physics. The head was appointed prof. S.I. Isatayev.

   Since 2002, the department was headed by Professor A.S. Askarova. The main direction of scientific research of the department is the physics of thermal and molecular phenomena. Teachers and researchers of the department are engaged in theoretical and experimental studies of aerodynamics and heat and mass transfer of laminar and turbulent flows, diffusion and thermal conductivity phenomena of one and many component gases and liquids in isothermal and non-isothermal conditions, studying the laws of combustion processes and their practical applications
