Research

Research interests are located in mathematical modeling, specifically of hydraulic systems; heat- and mass transfer processes; bubble dynamics in non-Newtonian liquids; boiling of polymeric solutions; wave propagation in different waveguides; acoustics of multiphase systems. Results of his studies are presented in more than 180 publications, including 2 monographs, chapter in a Handbook and 10 patents. Levitsky S. is a full member of the American Acoustical Society (since 2012); he was a manuscript reviewer in a number of Journals, including JASA, Acta Acustica, International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Ultrasonics, Journal of Vibration and Control, etc.
