Łukasz Breńkacz, Ph.D., Eng.

I am a research associate at the Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences

About me

I design and make calculations of bearings and rotating machinery. I am interested in vibration-based health monitoring of bearings. At work, I use numerical methods and perform experimental research. For several years, I have been dealing with the subject of rotor dynamics related to the selection of bearings for high-speed micropower turbines. My research scope includes hydrodynamic, gas, rolling, and foil bearings. I am an author or coauthor of several expert opinions and about 60 scientific publications. I also participated in 9 research projects and currently am a project manager in one of them.
