  6. Optimisation of Bearing Systems of Turbocharger Rotors

    The dissertation aim is a development of algorithms and procedures suitable for optimizing the parameters of rotor bearing systems to increase mechanical efficiency of turbochargers. Activities include the development of efficient computational models of sliding bearings with consideration of thermal-structural-hydrodynamic processes. It is expected deep utilize of programming languages (Matlab, Fortran or C) a commercial software (CFX, ANSYS) together with global computational model in Multibody system (e.g. ADAMS). The results will be verified by the technical experiments on specialized experimental test benches. A cooperation with the industrial partner with a real impact on the application of the results of work is expected. The long-term internship abroad at the world's research institutions and participations in international conferences and scientific journals are planned during study.

  7. Optimization of production logistics using the stable production concept

    One of the prerequisites for rationalization of the mass production of cars as well as cost reduction of final products is the optimization of production program stability. This can be accomplished by finding an optimum of two opposing production impacts. In terms of costs reduction, the optimal model represents production of one car version for as long period of time as possible (stability of the production program). Regarding production flexibility (prompt reaction on sale), various versions of a car type are being produced in one production flow. The aim of this work is carrying out an analysis of the production programme including its influence on stock control and concepts of material distribution to the production lines. The current level of reliability as well as continuity of supplying the production lines by material should be preserved. It is expected that some conceptual models, created in Plant Simulation and other tools (Ave Sim, Matlab), will be created, analysed and subsequently verified.
