“Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati

Abstract: The staff which is exposed to acoustic sources in industrial environment may claim appearance of some disturbances to the hearing system but also some short term or long term organic modifications. By this reason, to determine the acoustic parameters in occupational environment cannot be optional, this becoming mandatory related to those previously mentioned. The main goal of this study is to monitor the level of acoustic parameters during operation of an installation intended for obtaining of vegetal bio-stimulants and to report the exceeding of allowed values provided by standards regulating into this field. This presentation is a result of the research which is developing into the project BIOSTIM - Research on obtaining vegetal bio-stimulants from agricultural post-harvest waste and medicinal plants, to increase the quality of agricultural and horticultural products - PN-III-P2-2.1-PTE-2016-0073 (

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Ioana Diaconescu received her Master‘s degree in Electrotechnics and Energetic from Polytechnic Institute from Bucharest, in 1987. She has earned her Ph.D in Advanced Engineering Thermodynamics from “Dunarea de Jos” University-Galati, in 1998. She is recognized as mechanical engineering associate professor at the department of Technical Sciences, Machines and Drives from “Dunarea de Jos” University from Galati and she teaches mainly Thermodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer and Electrical Drives. Since 2001 she is a senior research at the Research Center for Mechanics of Machines and Technological Equipments and she focused her research activities during the last ten years to energy saving and trigeneration, mass and heat transfer (paper drying process), exergy and energy analysis of thermal processes, irreversible processes analysis, renewable energy and energy management. She is author of three books and more than 90 scientific papers published at international conferences and journals. She is Romanian and Bulgarian evaluator for R&D projects, also European evaluator for education’s quality and participates as a team member into national funded R&D projects. Also, Ioana Diaconescu is reviewer for WSEAS papers and other prestigious journals. Ioana Diaconescu was invited three times as visiting professor in City University of Honk-Kong-China, were developed a fruitful collaboration with Mathematical Department regarding PDEs in heat and mass transfer issues (drying and cooling processes). Dr. Ioana Diaconescu is an Expert of Romanian National University Research Council – CNCSIS and also an Evaluator of the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education.
