Main scientific achievements:

  • Application of the boundary element method in numerical modelling of solidification process. The basic algorithm of the BEM has been extended for strongly non-linear differential equations by introducing the additional procedures linearizing the problem considered. Different variants of the BEM for unsteady thermal diffusion equations were developed. These results were presented in the series of papers published among others in Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements, Journal of Cast Metal Research, Journal of Materials Processing Technology, Archives of Foundry Engineering, Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics and summarized in the monograph "Boundary element method in heat transfer", 2001 and chapter "Boundary element method" in book "Numerical Methods in Computations of Foundry Processes'' (B. Mochnacki, J.S. Suchy, 1995).
  • Numerical modelling of bio-heat transfer. Numerical methods, in particular the BEM and FDM, have been applied to the computations of steady and transient temperature fields in domain of biological tissue. The continuous and vessels models were developed. Additionally one can find the papers devoted to numerical simulation of freezing process (cryosurgery), burns prediction etc. The results of scientific researches in this scope have been presented, among others, in: E.Majchrzak, Application of general boundary element method for numerical solution of bioheat transfer equation, Chapter 18 in: J.Murin, V.Kompis, V.Kutis (eds), Computational Modelling and Advanced Simulations, Springer, 2011, 343-361; E.Majchrzak, Modeling and analysis of thermal phenomena, Part IV in: Technical Mechanics, Volume XII: Biomechanics, ed. R.Będziński, IPPT PAN, Warsaw, 2011, 223-361 (in Polish); in the paper published in: CMES: Computer Modelling in Engineering and Sciences, Computer-Assisted Mechanics and Engineering Sciences, Acta of Bioengineering and Biomechanics, Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics.
  • Sensitivity analysis. The sensitivity analysis of temperature distribution with respect to perturbations of thermal process parameters is also the subject of interest. In particular, the problems of non-linear transient heat diffusion have been considered. The numerical algorithms concerning the transition of basic solution on the others ones corresponding to disturbed input data were presented, among others, in the papers published in Materials Science Forum, Giessereiforschung - International Foundry Research, Archives of Foundry Engineering.
  • Inverse problems in heat and bioheat transfer. Essential achievements in the scope of numerical methods application for inverse problems solution. The inverse problems are connected with identification of parameters determining the course of solidification in a system casting-mould, in other words the strongly non-linear tasks concerning the non-homogeneous domains are considered. The essential part of research works is connected with the identification problems concerning the thermal processes proceeding in living tissues. As an example, the problem of size and position of tumor region on the basis of measurements of temperature field on skin surface has been solved (Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, 2007) and the identification of electromagnetic field parameters assuring the cancer destruction during hyperthermia treatment has been done (Inverse Problems in Science & Engineering, 2011).
  •  Microscale heat transfer. The mathematical models of the heat transfer in microscale are essentially different in comparison with the classical macro approach. The existing results have been presented, among others, in the papers published, among others, in Computer Modelling in Engineering and Sciences, Computer Methods in Materials Science, Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Scientific Research of the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science of Czestochowa University of Technology.
