Lublin University of Technology Poland

Prof. Ph.D., D.Sc., Eng. Anna Rudawska is an author or co-author of 363 scientific publications and 14 registered patents and 54 patent applications and designs utility in adhesive nd bonding technology field. She is member lots of international and national organizations, reviewer and member of editorial board of international Journals. Research activities focused on the issues of analysis of the influence of technological and structural factors on the polymers and metals adhesive joints strength, design of bonding technology, adhesive properties research, as well as issues related receiving the appropriate adhesive properties in order to increase the adhesion strength of the adhesive joints. The research included both experimental studies and numerical analysis of finite element method, using of non-destructive testing methods to analyze the correctness of the adhesive joints. The important research field is modification of epoxy adhesive compounds. In cooperation with the Department of Biotechnology, Marie-Curie Skłodowska University in Lublin conducts research related to the development of adhesive compositions containing metabolites produced by fungi decaying wood (white rot fungi). The research will contribute to the development of new adhesive materials with specific properties, which can significantly affect the reduction of aging and degradation (including biodegradability) of these materials under the influence of various operational factors (chemical, biological and climatic conditions) as well as extend the life of adhesion joints (for due to limited or slow down the aging process). In collaboration with the Medical University in Lublin conducts research on the phenomena of adhesion and the strength of dental adhesives.

This book discusses applications of adhesives and adhesive joints in different branches of industry. The properties of adhesives and adhesive joints, and also the requirements of mechanical properties and chemical and environmental resistance of adhesives and adhesive joints, are very important because proper strength, durability, and time of use are all factors that are dependent on the type of industry. The aim of this book is to present information on the type of adhesives and adhesive joints, in addition to their characteristics, used in different branches of industry. This information should enable scientists, engineers, and designers to acquire knowledge of adhesives and adhesive joints, which could be helpful in selecting the right type of adhesive and adhesive joint to make applications for a particular industry.
