Design and Process Engineering
Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program
- CO2 reduction in flue gases in a Rotating Packed Bed using Lattice Boltzmann technique for the solution of two phase mixing.
Contribute to the development of the lattice Boltzmann technique for the solution of two phase mixing in a Rotating Packed Bed. Open source code OpenLB will be used in collaboration with Karlsruhe institute of technology. Results will be validated with own experiments and compared with CFD simulations.
- Development of algorithms for solving heat and mass transfer with phase and structural changes using GPU
The theme is aimed at the development of numerical algorithms designed primarily for solving heat transfer with phase transformations using high parallelization of code. For the solution should fully take advantage of special graphic processor units TESLA. Expected to use MATLAB, Python and C. Algorithms can be network-oriented methods (eg method of control volumes) or mesh free methods.
- Dynamic simulation of primary solidification zone in continuous casting of steel
The goal will be complex 3D model solving the solidification of steel in the mold / mold comprising a heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation and mass transfer. It is expected recovery software COMSOL Multiphysics and OpenFOAM.
- New technologies for the controlled heat storage
The aim is the development and validation of technologies for controlled accumulation of energy storage especially in phase change materials or a combination of multiple technologies. For verification technology to develop mathematical and physical (experimental) models, their results will be used to design and optimize the control algorithms for the management of storages.
- Research on transport and deposition of aerosols in human respiratory tract
Aerosols and particles (liquid, solid) are used to treat diverse lungs diseases by inhalation therapy. However the mechanism of aerosol transport and their deposition, mainly regional deposition in specific segments of the respiratory tract still lacks reliable explanation. An important issue is the fact that there exists intersubject difference (men, women), but also in the frame of one subject. Namely new-borns undergo significant geometrical changes in the upper (extra thoracic) airways (nose, mouth) during their development up to age approximately 5 to 6 years. These changes dramatically change the aerosol deposition mechanism. In the frame of this PhD topic the influence of the changing geometry on the aerosol deposition will be studied.
- Time heat balance model of steelworks
The subject of the development of complex model the whole process the steelworks ie. The electric furnace through the secondary metallurgy to the continuous casting ie. After the material flow. In order to simulate and optimize the process. It is believed the use of software MATLAB / Simulink and SimEvent.
- Virtual heat source for district and local heating
The aim is to develop algorithms for optimal control of multiple heat sources (gas boiler, biomass boiler, solar heating, heat pump, cogeneration unit), which will be the optimal source for the user. The criterion of optimality can be cost, air pollution, availability. Solution topic requires basic knowledge of MATLAB or Python.
