Bogdan Wasiluk

Dr. Wasiluk is a Technical Specialist with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission in Ottawa, Canada. Before that he was employed at Kinectrics Inc. (former Ontario Hydro Research Division), Toronto, and was involved in structural integrity evaluations of the CANDU reactor components including feeders and pressure tubes. Moreover, he was occupied with the experimental programs involving testing of Zr-2.5Nb pressure tube material properties in laboratory air and simulated reactor coolant environments. While working at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a postdoctoral research associate Dr. Wasiluk supported development of ASTM Standard E-1921 and probabilistically modeled cleavage fracture in pressure vessel steels. This included nonlinear modeling of the embedded cracks under pressurized thermal shock using probabilistic Weibull stress approach and fracture constraints. Dr. Wasiluk received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. His doctoral thesis included a new crack propagation direction criterion of the minimum radius of plastic zone and analytical studies on material fatigue. Dr. Wasiluk was awarded Japanese Government (Monbukagakusho) Scholarship and studied at the Kyoto University, Energy Conversion Science Department, Japan.
