Next Wednesday (November 18, 2020), at a slightly unusual time: at 15:15 (due to the time difference between Poland and Canada), we invite you to the seminar of Professor Grzegorz Glinka from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
The theme of the meeting will be
Fatigue Crack Growth Analysis — Experiments and Modelling
Grzegorz (Gregory) Glinka is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He specializes in fracture and fatigue of steel structures and mechanical engineering machinery, and has also acted as a United Nations expert. Professor Glinka’s research interests include fracture of materials, fatigue of structures, multiaxial fatigue and creep of engineering materials, computer aided design, FEM-elastic-plastic stress-strain analysis and reliability. He is also interested in weight functions and structural modeling for stress intensity factors. Professor Glinka’s recent research activities include the modelling of fatigue crack growth under random loading and fatigue optimization of welded structures.
He has published over 160 related articles in technical journals and textbooks and also teaches several upper year Mechanical and Mechatronics engineering courses at the university.
