Department of hydro engineering (N104)

Scientific-research work

Main directions of scientific work




The staff of the department are actively involved in the current scientific research, in the design of hydropower plants and hydro power plants in Georgia, in assessing monitoring and reliability of existing hydrocarbons (including Enguri HPP and Zhinvali).


The main direction of scientific research is: the firmness, sustainability, seismic resistance and rational structures of hydroelectric buildings; Hydropower Plants, Hydrological and Hydro-energy Study-Search Works; The problems of hydrodynamics of environmental and coastal areas in the maritime seaport regions and their solution.


It is noteworthy that Mirian Kalabegishvili is the author of the Gori Transport-Sawing Complex and Rikoti Rehabilitation Construction of Tbilisi-Batumi Main Road.
