A formal gala for presenting statuettes and honorable mentions in the National Stanisław Staszic Contest for the best innovative products, “Laurel in the field of innovation 2015” was held on November 25, 205.
The Institute submitted a project entitled “System of assessment of durability of materials for power engineering”, which was honoured with bronze laurel in the field of innovativeness.
The system of assessment of the condition of material of pressure components for power engineering boilers was developed in order to assess functionality thereof in operations during the design operating time as well as beyond the design operating time in creep conditions (high temperature and pressure). Determining the time of safe operations of the examined materials is possible through objective assessment developed based on the set of material engineering methods, as well as research techniques, creep tests as well as properly selected computational methods, in that computer analysis of microstructure image.
The project was developed jointly with the Silesian University of Technology (Adam Hernas, Prof. Dr. Hab. Eng.), representatives of the Institute coordinating the project: Janusz Dobrzański, Dr. Hab. Eng., Prof. at the Institute and Adam Zieliński, Dr. Eng
