Laboratory of Computational Mechanics (building B5, room 713)

The Laboratory of Computational Mechanics was created to development and experimental validation of the technology of manufacturing of ultra-thin wires made of spatial magnesium alloys and modeling the wide range of materials processing technologies. Currently, the lab consists of:

  • The own-construction device for cold and hot drawing process (patented, PL221561 B1)
  • The device for mechanical testing of the ultra-thin wires (own-construction)
  • 3D Printer (technology FDM)
  • Metallographic polisher with automatic system for suspension dosing
  • The optical microscope for quick testing the ultra-thin wires
  • The ultrasonic cleaner for drawing dies
  • Two pirometers for measurements temperatures in the range 20-1600ᵒC
  • The computational server for FEM modeling the drawing processes and other phenomena and processes which are considered in the realized research projects
  • License for the FEM software QForm for simulation the processes of metal forming
  • The own FEM software dedicated to:
    • drawing process
    • extrusion process
    • rolling process
    • process of the cooling with modeling the residual stresses in material
    • modeling of the stresses and strains state in artificial heart device POLVAD.


The research performed in the lab has been awarded both in the Poland and Worldwide:

  • Silver Certificate Award in Non-Ferrous Division of Wire Association Int., USA, 2010
  • Wire Association International, Marshall V. Yokelson Memorial Medal Award in the Nonferrous Division, USA, 2015
  • Professor A. Rodziewicz-Bielewicz Memorial Award in 2016 for the New technology of production of ultra-thin wire from hard deformable Mg alloys.
  • Results of the research performed in the lab were widely presented in media (TV, Radio, Dziennik Polski).
