Antoni Niepokólczycki Ph.D. Eng. became the Acting Director of M&SRC. The former Director Grzegorz Galin Ph.D. Eng. has been appointed to serve as Acting Deputy Director of M&SRC.
Structural Test Laboratory joins to TEBUK project realization – „Development of the technology for testing the resistance to damage of aviation and space composite load bearing structures”.
In 2013, as a part of cooperation with project leading group – Composites Laboratory – Structural Test Laboratory will perform static and fatigue tests of Technology Demonstrator.
At the end of December 2009 The Ministry of Science and Higher Education decided to grant the realization of developmental project by scientific-industrial consortium, represented by Materials and Structures Research Center. The project “Research methods and system for impact testing of aircraft and land vehicles subcomponents for passengers safety evaluation“ was submitted for 9th competition of developmental projects in the range of defense and safety.
