VICE-DIRECTOR FOR SCIENCE

 

Artur Gutkowski was born in 1973. He graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Lodz University of Technology in 1999 (specialization in Machines for Food Industry, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration). In the same year he began his doctoral studies at the Lodz University of Technology. In the next year he started to work at the Department of Heat Technology and Refrigeration as an assistant. His research work focused mainly on the experimental determination of laminar flame parameters. In 2004 he defended his PhD dissertation “Experimental verification of flame physical constants for several fuels with different laminar burning velocities” and started to work as a lecturer.

His area of interest has been expended for numerical simulations of laminar flame propagation.

Artur Gutkowski has authored or co-authored numerous publications in combustion of gaseous, liquid and solid fuels. He is also a co-author of the chapter in the monograph “Combustion Phenomena: Selected Mechanisms of Flame Formation, Propagation and Extinction" published by CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group.

            He conducts lectures in Polish and English on thermodynamics, heat transfer and combustion processes.

            He has been actively participated in the implementation of research programs financed by KBN, MNiSW, NCN as well as in European programs. He was also a reviewer of articles and manuscripts submitted for conferences, among others: Combustion Science and Technology and the International Colloquium on the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems.

            He had a short training in the Laboratoire de Combustion Détonique, Université de Poitiers, ENSMA (France, 2001) and two half-year scientific internships in the National Microgravity Laboratory, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing (China, 2005) and in the Division of Combustion, Department of Applied Mechanics, Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg (Sweden, 2007-2008), respectively.

In 2014 he defended his DSc dissertation entitled “Investigations of free propagation and quenching of the laminar flames in small channels with propane-air mixtures”.

Since 2014 Artur Gutkowski has been appointed Head of the Division of Heat Technology and Refrigeration at the Institute of Turbomachinery, Lodz University of Technology.

            He is a member of the Board of the Polish Institute of Combustion.
