I am interested in nonlinear mechanics especially self-excited vibrations in the metal turning process. I deliver a lecture in classical mechanics, mechanical vibrations and strength of materials. I enjoy football and fast riding a bicycle.

I work at Department of Applied Mechanics exploring nonlinear dynamics of autoparametric systems. I am interested in bifurcation and chaos investigations by using numerical software as Matlab and Dynamic-Solver programs. In particular my research concerns and practical demonstration of autoparametric vibrations.I find a lot of pleasure in my work but as I also love travelling. I still dream about visiting some remote parts of the world (Australia and New Zealand in particular). In my free time I enjoy sport, especially football. I am also working on improving my English and Russian.

In my research I work on an optimal passive, semi-active or active vehicle’s suspension system. The most interesting is an abstract car’s model which includes so called ‘sky-hook’ and ‘ground-hook’ dampers. I analyze possible application of magnetorheological dampers to semi-active control of a vehicle suspension system. I also study an impact phenomenon in multibody dynamics. Two impacts models, Newton impact model and an elastic-impact model are tested in a single and a double pendulum system. My email address is: a.mitura@pollub.pl

I work at Department of Applied Mechanics. My research concerns of non-linear vibrations of smart structures and modern composite materials. I study parametric and auto-parametric vibrations of non-linear discrete and continuous systems. My hobby are motor racing and ancient civilizations.

In my research I deal with nonlinear vibrations with time delay. Mathematical models I study analytically (by the multiple time scale method) and numerically in order to find resonance zones, stable and unstable solutions, bifurcation points and chaotic oscillations. My analysis is applied to cutting process for investigations of so called chatter vibrations. The theoretical results are tested experimentally to validate the model and to observe dynamics of the real system. I also work on an active vibration elimination in machining. I am highly interested in motorization, history and development of technology. My email address is: a.weremczuk@pollub.pl

Zofia Szmit

I work in the Department of Applied Mechanics. In my research I study nonlinear dynamics, dynamics of rotating structures and a synchronization phenomenon. Specially I am interested in a synchronization phenomenon of the rotating mistuned systems.  I teach my students classical mechanics, mechanical vibration theory and strength of materials.  In my free time I like to read books, skiing and car racing.
