Gedalyahu Manor, Associate Professor
B.Sc. 1956; Diplom Ingenieur 1957; M.Sc. 1965; D.Sc. 1970 (Technion).
Joined the Department of Agricultural Engineering in 1962 after acting as the head of the Power and Machinery Engineering Department of the Extension Service of the Ministry of Agriculture and the head of the Power and Machinery Department of the Agricultural College Yad-Natan. Started to design farm machinery in 1954 and since then he is involved in many design projects most of them the results of research. Has 27 patens on his name, many of them are being used in everyday work.
Soil-machine interactions, tractors and power systems, spraying equipment, fertilizer spreaders, harvesting machines and earth moving equipment.
24 refereed publications, 60 original and professional papers, 84 professional reports, 52 design works and 21 graduate students.
