New article in Engineering Failure Analysis

We are not slowing down! Another article by Dr Pavlo Krot, and Prof. Radosław Zimroz has been recently published in Engineering Failure Analysis journal. It presents the results of abrupt failure investigation in the structure of industrial plant for hydrostatic pressure testing tubes.

The authors proposed two options of plant modernization to reinforce the structure for safe work under pressure from 70 MPa to 125 MPa depending on the tube size and testing conditions. Such improvements have a significant potential for increasing the testing plant’s productivity.

The work presented in these papers has been funded by the SAFEME4MINE project. Full citations can be found below.

New article published

Once again, we are proud and happy to announce that members of DMC have just published another scientific article. In the new work a procedure for vibration analysis of the sieving screens used in the raw materials industry is presented. The paper has been published in the special issue of Sensors journal entitled “Sensing Technology and Data Interpretation in Machine Diagnosis and Systems Condition Monitoring”.

The research that led to the publication of this paper has been funded by OPMO project.

Growing appetites for academic development

Three of the DMC members have just started a new chapter in their career. Aleksandra Banasiewicz, Adam Wróblewski and Bartłomiej Ziętek, at the end of this week became brand new Ph.D. students of the interdisciplinary Doctoral School of WUST.

They are going to excel and develop in the area of Environmental Engineering, Mining and Energetics making advantage of the skills obtained due to their responsibilities in DMC and enriching our team by their freshly acquired knowledge.

We wish you all the best on the new adventure path!

Pavlo Krot on the Virtual Conference on Mechanical Fatigue

There is no time to waste, waiting for the conferences in classic form. Our team knows it very well, hence the research work is in full swing and we are happy to present its fruits in the virtual world.

We are proud to announce that the member of DMC’s Mechatronics / Reliability group – Pavlo Krot, Ph.D. presented three of his new works on fhe first Virtual Conference on Mechanical Fatigue (VCMF 2020) organised by the University of Porto, the Wrocław University of Science and Technology and the ESIS/TC12 Technical Committee (European Structural Integrity Society – ESIS). The articles presented below are an effect of the international and interdisciplinary cooperation between Pavlo and other Ukrainian and Polish researchers from:

  • Z.I. Nekrasov Iron and Steel Institute,
  • Ukrainian State University of Chemical Technology,
  • Lviv Polytechnic National University,
  • Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding,
  • DMT GmbH & Co.,
  • KGHM Polska Miedź S.A and
  • Faculty of Geoengineering, Mining and Geology of WUST.
