Innovative Doctoral Thesis of WUT Scientists Enhances COMP-ECO Research

29 July 2023,

We are thrilled to share the remarkable academic achievements of COMP-ECO team members from the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology.

Kamil Dydek and Bartlomiej Przybyszewski have both successfully completed their Doctorate studies and defended outstanding theses that hold significant implications for various industries.

Kamil Dydek's thesis, titled "Effect of Copolyamide Nonwovens Doped with Carbon Nanotubes on the Properties of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers," focuses on enhancing the electrical conductivity of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (#CFRPs) while preserving their mechanical properties. By ingeniously introducing copolyamide nonwovens doped with Carbon Nanotubes into the CFRP structure, Kamil demonstrated significantly improved electrical conductivity, expanding the possibilities for applications in automotive, marine, and wind energy industries. His groundbreaking work has advanced our understanding of composite materials and opened doors to innovation in industries relying on advanced materials.

Bartlomiej Przybyszewski's research delves into the challenges of ice formation on aerodynamic surfaces in various sectors, such as wind turbines, telecommunication, and shipbuilding. His thesis, titled "Effect of Chemical and Physical Modifications of Polyurethane Coatings on Their Hydrophobic and Icephobic Properties," addresses this issue by developing durable hydrophobic coatings with increased icephobic properties. Bartlomiej ingeniously modified the chemical composition of polyurethane topcoats using novel organosilicon compounds, SiO2 nanoparticles, and laser texturization, resulting in coatings with improved hydro- and icephobic properties. These findings broaden the possibilities for applying these materials in industries such as aviation, wind energy, and marine.

Both Kamil and Bartlomiej's accomplishments reflect their dedication to advancing materials science and engineering and will definitely contribute significantly to COMP-ECO research project implementation.
