Athanasios Chasalevris received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics from University of Patras (UoP)-Hellas in 2004 and he completed his PhD Thesis in the same institution in 2009 on vibration analysis of rotating systems with defects.
He joined Technical University Darmstadt (TUD)-Germany as Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral researcher in 2010, and as research associate in 2012 where he performed theoretical and experimental work on fluid film bearings.
He joined BorgWarner Turbosystems-Germany in 2013 within the position of Rotordynamic Engineer in the R&D engineering of turbochargers for automotive and marine industry.
In 2015 he joined General Electric-United Kingdom (ALSTOM Power at that time) in the position of Rotordynamic and Mechanical Integrity Engineer in Execution and R&D Engineering of industrial steam turbines for power generation. In 2017 he was assigned the responsibilities of Team Leader (rotordynamics) and of product owner for bearings in small Steam Turbine business of General Electric.
On September 2018 he was appointed Assistant Professor in the National Technical University of Athens in School of Mechanical Engineering and holds this position till today.
His research interests are:
- Dynamic Design of Machines / Nonlinear Rotordynamics / Turbomachinery Rotordynamics
- Tribology / HD Lubrication / Gas foil bearings / Adjustable bearings
He teaches in NTUA:
- Machine Elements I (3rd semester)
- Kinematics and Dynamics of Mechanisms (4th semester)
- Dynamics and Vibrations (5th semester)
- Dynamics of Rotating Machines (7th semester-elective)
He has authored or co-authored more than 50 articles published in international journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings about rotordynamics. His written work includes patents and various industrial reports on the rotordynamic assessment of high- and medium-speed turbomachinery. He is journal referee in more than 30 international journals and associate editor in Journal Shock and Vibration and ASME Journal for Engineering of Gas Turbine and Power. In 2017 he received the Innovation Award “Beyond and Ahead” from General Electric.
