  • Synthesis of conductive polyaniline fibres.
  • Modification of the cellulose structure and studies on plasticization of cellulose derivatives.
  • Formation and modification of fibrous scaffolds for bone tissue regeneration.
  • Modification of thermoplastic polymers, using nanoadditives
  • Studies on the use of polypropylene fibres for reinforcing concrete.

Institute of Environmental Protection and Engineering:

  • Assessment of precipitation acidification and modelling of interactions between small molecules and macromolecules, using molecular dynamics and molecular mechanisms at atomic and mesoscale levels
  • Evaluation of the condition of man-made biotopes using vascular plants, bryophytes and lichens, and environmental valorization of areas based on geobotanical methods
  • Studies of the impact of topography, meteorological, hydrological and soil conditions on the spread of environmental pollution, particularly in mountainous areas
  • Involvement of filamentous bacteria in the phosphorus recovery cycle
  • Evaluation of methods, systems and efficiency of municipal sewage and industrial wastewater treatment
  • Studies on air pollution, including evaluation of the methods and devices for air protection in the coke industry, metallurgy, casting engineering

Institute of Civil Engineering:

  • Development of methods for Non-destructive testing (NDT) civil engineering structures, FBG, Residual Magnetic Field (RMF) Method.
  • Numerical analysis of nonlinear civil engineering construction , reinforced concrete, and wooden structures and their joints.
  • A comprehensive solution to the problems of design and assessment of steel scaffolding.
  • Analysis of chosen factors influencing results of soils laboratory tests.
  • Harmonization of geotechnical design in Europe.
  • Soils improvement by synthetics fibers
  • Analysis of the influence of additives and admixtures on physical and mechanical parameters of ordinary and high-quality plasters, designing skeleton buildings with a composite steel-and-concrete construction, calculating methods in multi-layered constructions
  • The teaching and research activities include close collaboration with related teams at Universities and Research Institutes in the Poland and abroad, including Slovakia, Czech Republic, Germany and USA.
