Profile of the branch:
The Ph.D. study focuses on the following fields of mechanics:
· Mechanics of solids. Theory of modelling mechanical systems, constitutive material relations with emphasis on non-linear behaviour, limit state conditions of materials and structures, mechanics of composites, biomechanics, analysis of stress, deformation and dynamic behaviour of selected groups of bodies (including composite bodies), inverse problems of mechanics of rigid bodies, modelling of stress and deformation in selected technological processes (forming), theory of experiments in interactive driving and mechatronic systems, dynamic of vehicles and of machinery, solution of selected problems in vibroacoustics.
· Mechanics of liquides and gases. Flow theory of compressible and incompressible fluids. Flow of gases and vapours. Nonstacionary flow and impact. Orientation on the flow in hydralic machines and heat engines.
· Thermomechanics. Theory of heat and substance transfer. Application of interferometry and other modern experimental methods. Thermodynamic problems of metallurgy and foundry technologies and heat treatment. Applications in the field of design of thermal power-generating machines. Inverse problems of heat transfer.

Branch supervisor: prof. Ing. Jiří Burša, Ph.D.
Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program:
  1. Residual lifetime of parts with residual stresses

    The aim of the PhD thesis is determination of mechanism of crack propagation in bodies with residual stresses induced during manufacturing process. The PhD student will contribute to the better understanding of damage mechanism of bodies with residual stresses, to refine the applied methods for estimation of residual lifetime and to the safer operation of studied parts. FE system Ansys and mathematical software Matlab will be used for necessary numerical calculations.

    Tutor: Náhlík Luboš, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
