Armand Tadeusz Zbikowski graduated in 1938 from Warsaw Technical University as a hydraulic engineer. From 1938 to 1939 he headed the land reclamation division at the municipal council in Ostrołeka. During World War II he was in prisoner-of-.war camps. After the war, from 1945 to 1949, Zbikowski worked at the Warsaw Direction of Waterways. From 1950 until 1964 he joined in Warsaw the Central Office for Studies and Designs Hydroprojekt, taking various positions up to chief specialist. At the same time, from 1952, he taught hydraulic engineering at the Warsaw Agricultural University, today's Szkoła Główna Gospodarstwa Wiejskiego SGGW, thereby analyzing the manifold problems of hydraulic engineering and hydraulics. In 1970 Zbikowski obtained the PhD title for his dissertation dealing with riverbed erosion. In 1990 he was finally appointed associate professor.. The research interests of Zbikowski included hydraulics, soil mechanics and construction mechanics related to hydraulic structures. He was the author and co-author of some important Polish books, notably his Hydraulic fundamentals of land reclamation installations, and his Earth dams. In this connection, the popular 1995 book of his pupils on River training techniques may also be mentioned. This work presents methods and procedures applied in Poland in particular, and in Eastern Europe in general, and therefore allows for an insight in these techniques from Western scientists.
