Title of the lecture: On optimization of structural topology of load carrying structures

Tomasz Lewiński graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering in 1979. The Ph.D. thesis on Continuum models of latticed plates of hexagonal microstructure was defended in 1984, under the supervision of prof. Zbigniew Mazurkiewicz. The main results presented in the habilitation (1991) were published in the papers: I - Effective models of composite periodic plates. I-Asymptotic solution. Int.J.Solids Structures 27(1991) 1155-1172; II- Simplifications due to symmetries. ibidem 1173-1184; III- Two-dimensional approaches, ibidem 1185-1203; Homogenizing stiffnesses of plates with periodic structure. Int.J.Solids.Structures 29(1992) 309-326.

Close cooperation with prof. Józef Joachim Telega and his team  (IPPT PAN, Warsaw) in the years 1985-2005. Recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Scholarship, University of Essen, Germany in the years 1992-1993, the host: prof. George I.N. Rozvany.

Cooperation (1997-2013) with prof. Jan Sokołowski and prof. F. Ganghoffer, Institute of E. Cartan, University of Lorraine, France.
