Achievements in organisation of science

In the years 1972-1992 he led the Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer Division at the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery PAS. In 1992 he was elected by the IFFM PAS Scientific Board a Deputy Director for Scientific Issues and in 1998 a Director.

For several years he has been the member of the Scientific Board of the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery PAS. At present, he is also the member of the Scientific Board of the Institute of Power Engineering in Warsaw and the Marine Technology Centre in Gdańsk. He was a member of the Machine Construction Department and Technical Physics and Applied Mathematics Department of Gdańsk University of Technology, Technical and Scientific Board of the Research and Development Centre of Refrigeration and Gastronomic Equipment "Gastromasz", Scientific and Consultation Board at the Implementation Centre of the "Prodrem" Cooperative in Gdańsk.

Since 1995 until now (2002) he is the President of the Committee of Thermodynamics and Combustion PAS. For his organisation activity he received in 1995 the Scientific-Organisational Award of the Secretary of IV Department of PAS. He also is the member of the Committee of Power Engineering, member of the Section of Fluid Mechanics at the Committee of Mechanics PAS as well as a member of the Gdańsk Scientific Society. Since 1988 he is the member of the Editorial Committee of "Archives of Thermodynamics", and since a member of the Editorial Committee of "Transactions of IFFM". In 1997 he became the Editor-in-Chief of "Archives of Thermodynamics" as well as the IFFM Publishing House.

As a tribute to his scientific and organisational activity he received the following distinctions: a Gold Badge of Mechanical Engineering Department of Gdańsk University of Technology, a Silver Medal of Mechanical Engineering Department of Technical University of Cracow, a medal of Mechanical Engineering Department of Technical University of Łódź, a medal of 75th Anniversary of Marine Academy in Gdynia. In 2000 he received the society medal for his contributions to multiphase flows.

For two tenures he served as a member of the State Committee for Scientific Research and during the second term he was elected the President of the Electrotechnics and Power Engineering Group of the State Committee for Scientific Research (group T10). He is a member of the PHARE Programme Board. He is a Polish delegate to the 5th Framework Programme of EU in the "Energy" Committee, and a member of the Central Qualification Committee for Titles and Degrees. In 1988 he was elected to the full member of the International Refrigeration Institute in Paris.

He was the organiser of Summer Schools devoted to the problems of two-phase flows organised under auspices of the Committee of Thermodynamics and Combustion PAS in 1976 as well as under auspices of the Section of Fluid Mechanics at the Committee of Mechanics PAS.

He was a member of the Organisation Committee of the international conference "Baltic Heat Transfer Conference", Göteborg 1991, and in 1999 he was given organisation of that conference in Poland. In 1997 he was the organiser of international conference "Modelling and Design in Fluid-Flow Machinery" in Gdańsk. He was invited to the International Organisation Committee of the "Third International Conference on Multiphase Flow" in Lyon, 1998 and the Scientific Committee WORKSZOP, Varna'97 "Transport Phenomena in Two-Phase Flow". He was a reviewer in international journals (International Multiphase Flow Magazine, International Heat Transfer Conference, Brighton, 1998 in Great Britain, International Conference "Energy System and Ecology") and other.
