About

I am a D.Sc. qualified, highly experienced technologist of concrete. I have wide experience as a concrete researcher, mix designer, quality controller of concrete production (both ready-mix and precast elements) and concrete technology lecturer. In my role, with The University of Sheffield, UK (2007-2008) I was involved in ECO-Lanes project (concrete pavements based on roller compacted waste fibre concrete) and project concerning precast SIFCON elements dynamically loaded by blasting explosive materials. I have successfully led the development of a new mixes based on fine aggregates and modified by waste steel fibre. I have provided identification of technological problems connected with SFRC to key customers (mainly concrete industrial floors and pre-cast elements producers including concrete pipes) of fibre concrete division of ArcelorMittal in UK. I have successfully delivered technical solutions, expertise advice, scientific and research support to prove viability of the SFRC solutions. I was also responsible for providing quality control services during trial castings and laboratory tests of different kinds of specimens. As a director of Laboratory of Building Engineering at Koszalin University of Technology in Poland apart from being involved in numerous research programmes dealing with ordinary concrete, SFRC, SIFCON, mortar, Non Destructive Testing of Concrete (wide range of different methods), new methods of designing concrete mixtures, concrete and mortar mixes based on waste materials (e.g. waste sand, raw silica fume, waste steel fibre), I have collaborated with local producers of building materials (pre-cast concrete elements, ready to use mortars, aggregates) and helped them achieve certifications enabling European sales of their products. Apart from my research and testing activities I have promoted dozens of M.Sc. and Eng. Thesis, most of which were purely research and innovative.
