Dr Andrzej Jasionowski practices forensic naval architecture.
He holds a PhD in damaged vessel hydrodynamics from the University of Strathclyde, UK, (2002).
He has specialised since 1995 in the application of advanced numerical techniques for stability, hydrodynamics, oil film lubrication, ship flooding simulations, probabilistic assessment of time to sink and capsize, holistic risk quantification, shaft alignment, FEM, and forensics of collision, grounding, unsafe port and in assessment of design defects.
He advised on foundering of several ships including bulk carriers, m.v. DERBYSHIRE, ropax, m.v. ESTONIA, m.v. NAPOLEON BONAPARTE, m.v. SEWOL, m.v. HYUNDAI No.105, m.v. ROCKNESS, offshore semisubmersible, DEEP WATER HORIZON, among others.
He advised on new building disputes regarding ship weight, fuel oil consumption, shaft alignment, structural integrity, propulsion, stability, capacity, unsafe ports, supported sea trials and yard inspections.
He advised government organisations (UK, EC) on regulatory developments for risk mitigation (with presentations to the International Maritime Organisation IMO).
Andrzej has developed advanced decision support systems for effective operation and flooding crises management and supported the design development of several significant new building projects.
He is an author, co-author, co-contributor to articles published in journals, conferences and books.
Andrzej has contributed as and has acted as an expert witness at arbitration hearings (UK, FRANCE, SOUTH KOREA, SOUTH AFRICA, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, AUSTRALIA).
