Tibor MAZÚCH, Ing., CSc. was born in Martin (Slovakia) on 31st August 1957. After finishing his studies on the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Slovak Technical University Bratislava (M. Sc. Eng., Applied mechanics 1981) he entered the Institute of Materials and Machine Mechanics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Branch Martin. He took his scientific degree CSc. (PhD.) in Mechanics of Solids in 1991. He was an advisory member of the Board of scientists of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (1994-2001), a member of editorial board of the Journal of Mechanical Engineering - Strojnícky časopis (1996-99) and head of Department of FEM (1997-2001). He was a member of the scientific board of the Institute of Materials and Machine Mechanics (2002-2004).
Since June 2005 he is working at the Institute of Construction and Architecture of the Slovak Academy of Sciences.
He was a member of the Commission for machinery, metallurgy and material engineering of the Grant Agency of Ministry of Education of Slovak Republic and Slovak Academy of Sciences (2002-2005).
He investigated the possibilities of reducing number of degrees of freedom in vibration analysis of large discrete models (modifications of the Guyan reduction, Lanczos method, ...). During last few years he was interested in finite element modelling (and creating computer programs) of natural vibration of compressible fluid in rigid-walled cavities, shells in contact with an inviscid incompressible fluid and at present his activity is focused on the FE modelling of the stress waves dispersion and the stress wave propagation. Recently, in co-operation with Dr. Jan Kozánek from IT AS CR Prague, he suggests the new recurrent method for the matrix inversion. The method gives more accuracy results than Crout (or Gauss-Doolitle) algorithm.
He published 6 papers in current contents (CC) journals, 15 papers in the other journals and 27 contributions in conference proceedings. He has 25 citations in CC journals and 24 other citations.
