Fields of Research:

 

Research to date has been primarily in the field of the vibrations, applied mathematics, engineering design, viz. dynamic modelling of single, double and multi-mass systems, vibration control, and dynamic systems - for which computer solutions has been validated by extensive experimental studies. Modelling includes a computer and analytical modelling of the frequency and dynamic behaviour of single, double and multi-mass dynamic vibration systems. Modelling includes several up to date computer codes, such as MATLAB, SolidWorks and others.

Investigation of the dynamic loads that arise in operating mode in various machines such as internal combustion engines, transportation machines, machines and mechanisms utilising cardan transmissions, woodworking machines and others. Particularly important part of my research activity is aimed to study the vibro-shock processes in certain classes of machines and in particular, a study of vibro-shock processes in vehicles and woodworking machines.

Various optimization tasks are solved, to perform optimal selection of the parameters of the links of different machines and equipment, which allows the system to operate at optimum conditions, away from the resonant modes. Studies are conducted to optimize the process of dynamic and impulse impact on the mechanical systems.

I have experience as a university lecturer.
