Issued topics of Doctoral Study Program:
  1. 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 and C++. Algorithms can be network-oriented methods (eg method of control volumes) or mesh free methods.

    Tutor: Štětina Josef, prof. Ing., Ph.D.
  2. 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.

    Tutor: Štětina Josef, prof. Ing., Ph.D.
  3. Heat and mass transfer with phase changes modelling using parallelization algorithms

    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 and C++. Algorithms can be network-oriented methods (eg method of control volumes) or mesh free methods. It is believed the use of MATLAB and C ++ language and commercial COMSOL.

    Tutor: Štětina Josef, prof. Ing., Ph.D.
  4. 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.

    Tutor: Štětina Josef, prof. Ing., Ph.D.
  5. Smart mobile data acqusition system for environmental engineering

    The theme is aimed at the development of modern measuring system based on hardware and software from National Instrument. In particular, take advantage of a Real-time operating systems and FPGA technology.

    Tutor: Štětina Josef, prof. Ing., Ph.D.
  6. Stabilization of fluid flow temperature with latent heat thermal energy storage

    The phase change of matter from liquid to solid state is accompanied by absorption/release of large amount of heat in the narrow temperature interval. This phenomenon can be employed for stabilization of fluid temperature with the use of a fluid-PCM heat exchanger. The investigations will be conducted both experimentally and numerically. An existing experimental set-up will be used for experimental investigations. Several commercial off-the-shelf simulation tools are available for numerical investigations. Both experimental and numerical investigations will be done for periodical and stochastic changes of fluid temperature.

    Tutor: Charvát Pavel, doc. Ing., Ph.D.
  7. 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.
