    Mr Tomasz Wandowski was born 1980 in Tczew - a town of Kociewie. In years 2000-2005 he studied at the Gdansk University of Technology at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. The title of his M.Sc. thesis was "Modelling dynamics of the working head of an underwater robot for ship hull cleaning". In August 2005 he joined the Mechanics of Intelligent Structures Department group at the Szewalski Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery. In 2011 he obtained a Ph.D. title in Mechanics from the same Institute. Tomasz Wandowski is an associated member of the Experimental Methods of Mechanics section of the Mechanics Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

    His scientific interests primarily are focused on:

    • the damage detection, localization and identification in aircraft structures based on elastic wave propagation method,
    • development and optimisation of sensor networks for damage detection in structures,
    • scanning laser vibrometry for elastic wave propagation analysis,
    • electromechanical impedance technique for damage detection,
    • development of methods for surface contamination and weak adhesive bonds evaluation for CFRP material,
    • terahertz techniques for assessment of composite materials degradation,
    • active thermography,
    • the use of multi-functional materials for shape and vibration control,
    • energy harvesting using piezoelectric materials.

    Tomasz Wandowski is a coauthor of a patents:

    • "Method and device for damage localisation in structural elements" - PAT. 211916,
    • "Method for damage localization in structures" - PAT.223854.

    In years 2012-2014 he has coordinated a research project founded by Ministry of Science and Higher Education, project IUVENTUS Plus II, No. IP2011 058971.

    In years 2015-2018 he has been coordinating the project founded by National Science Centre, SONATA, No. 2014/13/D/ST8/03167
