Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program:
  1. Analysis of indoor environment quality in public transport

    Experimental and theoretical solution to the quality of indoor environment in selected vehicals of public transport. Evaluation of the use of energy sources and methods of operation of ventilation, heating and cooling systems. Short-term and long-term load of passengers in the interior of the vehicals. Efficiency assessment of the operation and permissible quality of the indoor environment.

    Tutor: Hirš Jiří, doc. Ing., CSc.
  2. Controlling of Operation of Building Services Systems

    Research on intelligent systems management on Building Services Systems. Focus on energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and the creation of data inputs for control systems with the use of dynamic modeling of the behavior of buildings and HVAC systems. Intelligent energy distribution between buildings.

    Tutor: Hirš Jiří, doc. Ing., CSc.
  3. Ground-coupled Heat systems for Heating and Cooling of Buildings

    PhD thesis focuses on the research use of land for energy for heating and cooling. The scope of work will be theoretical and experimental investigation of the thermal interaction between an building and ground and an optimal design of ground and foundation exchangers. The aim is to streamline obtaining geothermal energy of the elements of foundation structures and to develop a methodology for their design in the Czech Republic. The simulations can use the softwares CalA, TRNSYS, ANSYS Fluent.

    Tutor: Šikula Ondřej, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  4. Modeling and simulation of buildings and smart regions.

    PhD thesis focuses on the modeling and simulation of intelligent buildings and smart regions. Effective use and placement of elements of ventilation, heating and cooling in buildings and their optimal control system. Systems, equipment and strategies for energy storage.

    Tutor: Šikula Ondřej, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  5. Optimization of thermally activated building structures

    PhD thesis is focused on the optimization of Thermo Active Building Structures (TABS) used for heating and cooling buildings. Assumes the use of simulation methods, laboratory experiment and measurement INSITU. The aim is to provide recommendations for optimal design and control of TABS. The simulations can use the softwares CalA, TRNSYS, ANSYS Fluent.

    Tutor: Šikula Ondřej, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  6. Possibilities of thermal bridges elimination

    Using the modeling of thermal and humidity fields to find solutions to the elimination of thermal bridges in building structures.

    Tutor: Kalousek Miloš, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  7. Research of elements and systems of buildings services

    Research of elements and systems of buildings services as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) will be conducted in order to achieve a thermal comfort in buildings at the minimum operating energy consumption. HVAC systems research will focus on optimizing of their design and operation with the use of low-potential thermal energy sources. The research will be conducted in its theoretical part by development of new mathematical-physical models, and by laboratory experiments and in situ measurements in an experimental part by using PIV method.

    Tutor: Šikula Ondřej, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  8. Research pilot projects of nearly zero-energy buildings and positive energy

    Theoretical modeling and experimental measurements of buildings included as pilot projects in the project TAČR CK Smart Regions.

    Tutor: Hirš Jiří, doc. Ing., CSc.
  9. Simulation of flow and pollutants in buildings

    Topic of doctoral thesis focuses on the application and verification of theoretical research methods airflow in buildings and external aerodynamics of buildings with the current transfer of moisture. The simulations can use the software Fluent, CFX, or OpenFOAM.

    Tutor: Šikula Ondřej, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
