Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program

  1. Active flow control as a tool for aerospace airfoils performce improvement

    The topic of thesis is connected with research activity at Institute of Aerospace Engineering. The goal is seen in experimental and computational (CFD) assessment of specific active flow concept of aircraft airfoil.

    Tutor: Juračka Jaroslav, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  2. Health monitoring system architecture for aerospace use

    Among aerospace technologies that are currently experiencing large development is health monitoring. The development of health monitoring is taking place both for airframe and for aircraft systems. The Institute of Aerospace Engineering has long record of involvement in research projects aimed at these technologies. In the framework of the Ph.D. work, it is expected to participate on research tasks dedicated to health monitoring of airframes and/or aircraft systems.

    Tutor: Hlinka Jiří, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  3. Methods of space components testing

    Testing of space components for space missions is based on ECSS standards requirements fullfilment. SPecific methodology and design of particular experiemtn is necessary for such tests. The goal of thesis is implementation of latest research discoverings in that engineering area particularly for moderate size space components.

    Tutor: Jebáček Ivo, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
