Igor Stanislavovich Nagorsky (18.02.1931, Bobruisk – 13.05.2006), a scientist in the field of mechanization and automation of agriculture. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2003), Academician of the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences (1991), Academy of Agrarian Sciences of the Republic of Belarus (1992–2002), Doctor of Engineering Sciences (1978), Professor (1980).
Scientific studies are devoted to the issues of technology and means of agricultural mechanization. He proposed an experimental-theoretical analysis of the efficiency of functioning and optimization by the methods of mathematical modeling of the parameters of agricultural machines at the design stage. Developed provisions for the study of mobile agricultural units in the conditions of non-stationary random effects. Contributed to the justification of performance indicators and ways to form a rational system of agricultural machinery. Under his leadership, efficient new generation agricultural machines were created, providing a high degree of resource saving in the production of agricultural products by adapting their working bodies to the soil, plants and cultivated agricultural materials, as well as due to the high level of unification.
Author of more than 420 scientific papers, incl. 18 book editions, more than 60 copyright certificates for inventions and patents.
Awarded with the Order of the Red Banner of Labor (1979), medals.
