Research area

The laboratory of Theory of Metallurgical Processes has existed since its inception into scientific activity, first as the laboratory, in the structure of the Institute of Fundamental Technological Research in Warsaw and then as the Department of Fundamentals of Metallurgy, Institute of Fundamentals of Metallurgy and Institute of Metallurgy and Materials Science. Initially, research topics focused on measurements of metal activity in alloys. Over time, it has been extended including research on other properties, such as surface tension and density. The last years of the twentieth and early twenty-first century is another period of broadening the spectrum of research on thermodynamic and physicochemical properties of lead-free solder. These include viscosity, specific resistance measurements, calorimetric measurements of formation enthalpy of intermetallic phases, changes of mixing enthalpy of liquid alloys, temperature transitions by thermal analysis, hydrogen adsorption / desorption testing and wettability of materials with lead-free solder alloys, soldering alloys and electrolytic production of solders and preparation of graphene layers. From the moment the Institute was founded, the Laboratory of Theory of Metallurgical Processes was headed by: prof. Aleksander Krupkowski, prof. Władysław Ptak, prof. Zbigniew Moser and from the year 2000 prof. Władysław Gąsior.
