Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Leszek Chybowski. I live in Poland. I am interested in machines, engines and device construction, operation and maintenance. I believe modern technologies are a natural step in developing our civilization and I have always felt that our environment is dominated by machinery. In my opinion they constitute a visible cultural landscape of everyday life. It was this attitude of mind which made me choose my career. I'm a marine engineer. In the meantime, I started my research on technical systems operation.
During my work in engine rooms I started to be interested in technical systems diagnostics, reliability and safety during operation. Why did I start to be interested in this area? As the answer I can quote an American engineer describing the true nature of men:
If there are two or more ways to do something,
and one of those can result in catastrophe,
then someone will do it.
Edward A. Murphy
Human factor has big influence on technical systems operation. Let me illustrate it by means of the movies below. The man is the weakest link in each operation system. Sad but true? Enjoy.
Since 2005 I have been working as an academic teacher at the Maritime University of Szczecin. I teach many subjects connected with marine power plants operation. My scientific interests concern reliability, safety and operation of complex technical systems. I am engaged in a few scientific projects. I am a member of the Polish Scientific Society of Combustion Engines and the International Group On Reliability. On this website I present my achievements and publish additional materials for my students.
If you are interested in cooperation and/or you have any questions, comments or you would like to get further information on the problems presented on my page, do not hesitate to contact me immediately.
