The main objective of the course is to build in students a complex of knowledge and skills that will allows them to solve engineering problems in the field of technology of materials from wood fibres, related to the comparative characteristics of production methods, type of used machines and equipment, production modes, quality control of the production, possibilities for complex use of lignocellulosic raw materials, operational and structural engineering of processes and production.
The course provides students with knowledge for the classification, properties and technologies for production of materials from wood and non-wood lignocellulosic fibres.
The main focus of the course is on technologies for the production of fibreboards. The organization, technology and mechanization of this kind of production facilities are studied in detail. The organization of technological control in factories and the testing of the physical and mechanical properties of fibreboards are also overlooked.
Although in reduced volume, the course also studies the technologies for the production of gypsum fibreboards, wood fibres reinforced composites, pulp, paper and cardboards.
