This Special Session is dedicated to aspects related to manufacturing and metrology in the aerospace industry. It presents an interesting opportunity for engineers and researchers to provide an increasing of knowledge and an easier diffusion of the most recent developments related to manufacturing and metrology in the aerospace field. This session is focused on the one hand on the metrological aspects of manufacturing parts for the aerospace industry like: measurements of aircraft structures and aerospace materials, on the other hand on the aspect of aviation manufacturing like: advanced diagnostic systems of machines, monitoring and optimization of manufacturing process and optimization of difficult-to-cut materials.


Topics for this Special Session include:

  • Advanced diagnostic systems of machines in aerospace manufacturing;
  • Machine measurement systems and their control;
  • Diagnostics of robots during the manufacture of aircraft parts;
  • Monitoring and optimization of manufacturing processes in aerospace production;
  • Metrology and optimization of geometrical and physical parameters of surface integrity;
  • Optimization of difficult-to-cut materials;
  • Surface metrology in aerospace manufacturing;
  • Friction and wear measurement of aerospace materials and composites;
  • Measurement and modeling of aircraft structures.

Ph.D. Eng. Magdalena Zawada-Michałowska is an assistant professor at the Department of Production Engineering at the Lublin University of Technology. In 2020 by the decision of the Scientific Discipline Council of Mechanical Engineering of the Lublin University of Technology received a doctoral degree with honors in the field of engineering and technical sciences in the discipline of mechanical engineering. The doctoral dissertation concerned the deformation of thin-walled elements after milling. In her scientific work, she focuses on issues related to the technology of machining of thin-walled elements, especially aircraft, as well as metrology of geometric qua ntities. Magdalena Zawada-Michałowska is a co-author of many scientific publications in reputable scientific journals indexed in leading databases, such as: Web of Science and Scopus. She has repeatedly participated in national and international scientific conferences, presenting the latest scientific achievements. In addition, she cooperates with aviation companies in the implementation of research projects.

Ireneusz Zagórski is a assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the Department of Production Engineering in Lublin University of Technology (Lublin). Research interests include milling of light alloys (research and analysis of machinability indicators e.g. roughness parameters, cutting forces, displacement and acceleration of vibrations, temperature, fractions of chips). Research interests are currently focused on the issues of rough, finish and precision milling of magnesium alloys. From 2019 auxiliary supervisor in the PhD thesis Precision milling of magnesium alloys elements. He was a participant in several implementation projects dedicated to the aviation industry: Aviation Valley (Modern material technologies used in the aviation industry, Modern machining of magnesium and aluminum alloys), Innolot (Innovative Aviation: Amphora, Bloster, Technology for Bonding Primary Composite Airplanes) financed by The National Centre for Research and Development. He was also the head of the project is 'Miniatura4 – Influence of Technological Parameters and Tools Geometry on The Chips Temperature in the Machining Area During Milling Magnesium Alloys' financed by the National Science Center.He is a member of several societies (e.g. SIMP, PTZP). He is the author of over 70 reviewed papers and scientific publications and co-author of one scientific monograph. He is also a reviewer for scientific journals (e.g.: Materials, Machines, Micromachines, ASTRJ - Advances in Science and Technology Research Journal).

Jaroslaw Pytka is a professor of mechanical engineering at the Lublin University of Technology in Lublin, Poland. His research interests include flight and ground testing, measurements of non-electrical, physical quantities, terramechanics especially with respect to airfield performance of aircrafts on unsurfaced (grass, snow-covered) runways. He is a member of the AIAA, SAE, AOPA, and EAA.
