Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

2. round (applications submitted from 24.10.2019 to 09.12.2019)

  1. Application of computer tomography in acoustic testing of building materials

    Acoustic tomography is a method that makes possible to localize inhomogeneities in medium under investigation. The objective of the study consists in calculating cavities in materials by means of acoustic tomography methods and determining the resolution power of these methods.

    Tutor: Martinek Jan, doc. Mgr., Ph.D.

  2. Interaction study of polymeric additives with puzzolana active admixture in polymer modified composites

    The research will be focused on the study of changing properties of cementitious composites using polymeric additives (particularly redispersible polymeric powders) and puzzolana active admixture containing amorphous SiO2. Interactions of these additives and admixtures influence the properties of fresh mixture, hydration process and properties of hardened product.

    Tutor: Žižková Nikol, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

1. round (applications submitted from 05.06.2019 to 31.07.2019)

  1. Development of high-strength concrete with the use of fly ash

    The design work will be focused on the development of concrete with strengths higher than 80 MPa using a combination of Portland cements and fly ash produced by combustion of inorganic and organic fuels. The development of strengths up to 90 days and the possibility of reducing the development of hydration temperatures during hydration will be monitored.

    Tutor: Hela Rudolf, prof. Ing., CSc.

  2. Fibre reinforced cement composites

    Fibre reinforced concrete (FRC): Steel fibre and fine fibre (glass, polypropylene, cellulose, polyvinyl, polyolefin, waste fibre). The physical properties of FRC. Type, content and geometry of fibres. The effect of fibre additon on properties of cement composites.

    Tutor: Bodnárová Lenka, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  3. New building materials with electrical conductivity

    The main objective of dissertation is research and development of new type of cement composite material which will enable the conducting of electric current in its structure. Thanks to these properties, the newly developed material will subsequently be used in building protection systems against lightning strikes and overvoltage. The requested properties of developed materials will be achieved by means of a suitable combination of input materials, in particular fillers with low impedance values.

    Tutor: Drochytka Rostislav, prof. Ing., CSc., MBA, dr. h. c.
