Professor Stanisław Radkowski
Professor Stanislaw Radkowski, known and appreciated on an international scale, deals with the issues of machine operation. He has strengthened his scientific position through numerous publications, projects, patents, and monographic studies, which were the basis for obtaining further scientific degrees and the title of professor.
He included many original and new cognitive methods in the technical diagnostics of machines and vibroacoustics. His search and the obtained original research results were focused on: considering various classes of dynamic working machinery that are important in terms of cognition and application, allowing for the specification of the impact of their constructional features, as well as the degradation changes taking place during the exploitation process on their dynamic properties. They provided the basis for formulating solutions to the problem of identifying the sources of machine noise. He has interesting results in developing procedures for diagnosing the early stages of damage development. They made it possible to shape their desired dynamic characteristics, influencing the reliability of the operated systems and the vibroacoustic safety of their environment. It is to consider the publication as an example of the transfer of the scientific and research results presented for the construction of innovative scientific and technological solutions in industrial practice.
Professor was related to the period of his co-creation of the Vibroacoustic Laboratory of the Faculty of Automotive and Construction Machinery Engineering (SiMR) at the Warsaw University of Technology and the organization of the Integrated Environmental Laboratory of Mechatronic Systems for Vehicles and Construction Machinery. His and his team’s scientific and research successes contributed to the introduction of several changes in teaching programs, including new fields of study: Mechatronics, Engineering of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles. His scientific and didactic achievements were closely related to the creation of research and teaching teams, including the promotion of 12 PhDs in technical sciences, four of whom, after obtaining the degree of habilitated doctor, took up the positions of university professors.
