Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Polish Academy of Sciences
Research Activities pursued at the organisation
The Institute, established in 1953, is one of the largest institutes
within the Polish Academy of Sciences. Theoretical and experimental work
carried out in the Institute covers several fields which contribute to
basic engineering science and to modern technology. The most important
areas of the Institute's expertise include theoretical and applied
mechanics, theory of coupled mechanical and physical fields, experimental
mechanics and acoustoelectronics. Extensive research is also conducted
in several other branches of fundamental science and technology, such as:
physics and thermodynamics of continua; plasma physics; stochastic dynamics;
shock wave propagation in fluids and solids; the effects of laser radiation
on metals; mechanical, thermal and electromagnetic effects in fracture and
crack propagation; applied computer and information sciences, speech sciences;
mechatronics and robotics.
In addition to fundamental research, intensive applied research is being
conducted in the Institute. The Institute plays an increasingly important
role in the development of new technologies, in the construction of research
equipment (particularly acoustic instrumentation) an development of modern
methods of measurement. The institute has made an important contribution to
the training of young scientists.
