Vladimir Vitalevich Azarenko (b. 01.01.1958, Orekhovsk, Orsha district, Vitebsk region) - a scientist in the field of technologies and means of agricultural mechanization. Corresponding Member (2014), Doctor of Engineering Sciences (2006), Associate Professor (2008).
The main scientific works are devoted to the study of the patterns of destruction of the stress-deformed soil mass by pulsed loads. He determined the conditions under which the synergism of the effects of destruction of the stress-strain volume of the soil by a pulsed load manifests itself, which made it possible to substantiate promising directions for improving technological processes and technical means for treating the soil. Established patterns of force interaction between the working bodies with a stone of 0.3–0.6 m in size (weighing 30–300 kg) when it is removed from the soil (moving the stone along the cleavage plane in front of the lying soil, turning the stone in a vertical plane relative to the most distant point of the stone) depending on the orientation of the main axes of the stone. Conducted research on the mechanization of land reclamation activities, stone harvesting and other cultural and technical works. Participated in the development of the concept of the development of mechanization and automation of agricultural production, the system of agriculture of the Republic of Belarus, adaptive farming systems in Belarus and other documents defining the state technical policy in the field of mechanization of agricultural production and agricultural engineering.
Author of more than 220 scientific papers, including 1 monograph, 18 copyright certificates and patents.
