PhD. Eng. Sonia Boczkal

section: Laboratory of Physical Metallurgy


post:     Assistant professor 




graduated from the Department of Non-Ferrous Metals at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, with specialisation in materials science. In 2003 she defended her doctoral thesis in the field of mechanisms in materials after SPD methods at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow. Since 2004 she has been working in the Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals, Light Metals Division Skawina.
Her scientific achievements include 70 publications, mostly in English. She participated in 48 scientific conferences. She has also participated as author in 3 national projects and as a co-author in 25 national research projects and in 10 projects financed or co-financed by the EU. The current scope of Ms Sonia Boczkal’s work covers research studies and expertise made for the light metals industry, and examinations of the structure of the technically advanced materials based on aluminium and magnesium using the technique of electron microscopy.


Project leader:

  • Development of technology for casting pistons for engines of 4CT90 and ADCR conditions "Złotecki" company.
  • Development of phase composition of the composite-based AlSi alloy for possible forming the surface of the working pistons.
  • Identification of nanostructural effects in aluminum and aluminum alloy that result from reversibly die oscillating extrusion (KoBo method).

The Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals, Light Metals Division in Skawina, for more than 50 years specializes in studies of various casting technologies and other forms of light metals processing and surface treatment for the needs of basic R&D work carried out for the industry and other research centres.
