  5. Development of piezoelectric lead-free ceramics for energy harvesting

    Recently, energy harvesting based on piezoelectric ceramics has attracted wide attention as an electric energy source for low-power electronics. Due to environmental aspects the commonly available piezoceramic generators based on PZT (Pb-Zr-Ti-O) must be replaced by lead-free materials. BCZT (Ba-Ca-Zr-Ti-O) a BT (BiFeO3) are very promising lead-free piezoelectric ceramic materials for this application. The work will be, therefore, focused on the development and study of these unleaded materials and their controlled doping for the purpose of efficient electric energy harvesting. The student will develop processes for preparation of piezoceramic and composite piezoceramic tapes for application in energy harvesters. The efficiency of the new materials in the energy harvesting will be evaluated. Internship at the University of Oulu is planned during the study.

  6. Dielectric energy storage materials with high energy density

    Nowadays limitations of electro-mobility, intelligent electrical networks and pulse power systems is fast energy storage and release. The dielectric capacitors allows fast charging and discharging compared to lithium-ion batteries, moreover, these materials have a higher cyclic life. The ceramic-ceramic or ceramic-polymer composites seem to be the ideal candidates. The aim of this Ph.D. study is to increase the energy density characteristics through modulation of the nanostructure in 3D (the formation of a texture) what is necessary for the mobile applications of these dielectric capacitors of new generation. The innovative processing techniques such as Spark Plasma Sintering and Freeze-casting will be applied to achieve tailored microstructures of the investigated materials.

  10. Fracture mechanics of concentrators in composite materials

    Composite materials exhibit outstanding properties thanks to suitable junction of two different materials. However, sharp materials interface can lead to degradation of the properties. Conditions of crack initiation in places of sharp shape and materials changes will be determined and evaluated using the procedures of generalized fracture mechanics.

    Tutor: Klusák Jan, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  11. Friction materials – analysis of their composition and degradation

    Modern friction materials used in transportation are complex composites with sophisticated structure and chemical composition. The reason for this complexity is the wealth of physical and chemical processes occurring in the braking system. One of the most critical aspect is the degradation of friction materials during the braking and subsequent release of small particles into the environment. A detailed study of these particles is of utmost importance as they significantly contribute to the pollution of the predominantly urban environment. First, they cause the pollution of the soil in the vicinity of main roads. Second, our inhalation of these particles is known to be very dangerous to our health. The aim of proposed PhD program is to determine the impact of various degradation mechanisms in friction materials (heat, environ-ment and salty solutions), materials characterization of friction materials as well as thorough analysis of particles released during the braking.

    Tutor: Žídek Jan, Mgr., Ph.D.

  14. Lightweight ceramic materials for ballistic protection

    The recent research direction in field of ballistic protection is reduction of weight simultaneously with increasing demand for its ballistic resistance. Therefore, oxide ceramic materials are gradually replaced by non-oxide ceramic materials in personal ballistic protection, and light weight composites are designed for ballistic protection of vehicles. The aim of this Ph.D. topic is the research of chemical reactions in ceramic-metal composites, which can increase the energy absorption during impact of a projectile. The fundamental research of reaction kinetics will be carried out on materials with high probability of applications. The Spark Plasma Sintering method will be used to prepare novel composites, the properties of which will be further mechanically tested to optimize the parameters of their processing.

    Tutor: Salamon David, doc. Ing., Ph.D.

  15. Magnetic properties of high-entropy alloys

    So-called high-entropy alloys represent one of the most promising classes of modern materials. They are characterized by specific atomic distributions when a number of chemical species randomly occupy crystalline lattice positions. Combination of different elements and their concentrations provide materials with a wide range of unique properties. After years of intensive research focused on mechanical properties of high entropy alloys, the international scientific community has become recently interested in their magnetic properties. These will be the main topic of the proposed PhD program. The planned measurements will be supported by theoretical simulations. The research will be based on a recent cooperation of Czech, German, Austrian and American scientists: O. Schneeweiss, M. Friák, M. Dudová, D. Holec, M. Šob, D. Kriegner, V. Holý, P. Beran, E. P. George, J. Neugebauer, and A. Dlouhý, Magnetic properties of the CrMnFeCoNi high-entropy alloy, Physical Review B 96 (2017) 014437.

  18. Microstructural stability of wrought austenitic stainless steels: Impact of local chemistry

    Within a stainless steel family comprising five basic types the wrought Cr–Ni austenitic stainless steels (AISI 300 grade) still occupy a privileged position. Due to their exceptional corrosion resistance and prominent mechanical and technological properties have found utilization in diverse industrial, domestic, architectonic and biological applications at room and elevated but also at cryogenic temperatures. The f.c.c. (face centered cubic) paramagnetic austenitic  structure of most of these alloys is known to be, however, metastable, i.e. it can partially transform to ferromagnetic b.c.c. (body centered cubic) ′-martensite during cooling and/or plastic straining. The most important parameters controlling the stability of austenite are chemical composition and temperature. The formation of ′-martensite can have a beneficial effect on mechanical properties of these steels but with respect to the corrosion resistance of these steels the presence of ′-martensite may be detrimental and in the case of some applications (e.g. superconducting magnets) must be avoided. In the absolute majority of studies dealing with the stability of wrought AISI 300 grade austenitic stainless steels so far these materials are considered to be chemically homogeneous after numerous step of hot working. The importance of local chemistry in the form of chemical banding on the destabilization in various semi-product forms of wrought AISI 304 grade steels has been recognized only recently (J. Man et al.: Effect of metallurgical variables on the austenite stability in fatigued AISI 304 type steels. Eng. Fract. Mech. 185 (2017) 139–159). The principal goal of the proposed study is thorough experimental study of destabilization of austenitic structure and DIM (deformation induced ′-martensite) formation in wrought AISI 300 grade ASSs in the perspective of their physical metallurgy. The great importance will be put on the description of characteristic forms of local chemistry in various forms of steel semi-products and their impact on the morphology and spatial distribution of DIM in the whole volume of strained selected ASSs (304/304L, 316/316L, 321, 301LN). The experimental program will accomplish the following topics: (i) systematic monitoring of chemical homogeneity of AISI 300 series austenitic stainless steels (304, 316 and some others) in various industrially produced wrought forms (cylindrical bars, thick and thin plates), (ii) systematic study of destabilization of wrought 316-type ASSs of various semi-products under cyclic straining under total strain control at room and especially depressed temperatures. (iii) Qualitative and quantitative study of DIM formation during tensile testing of 304- and 316-type ASSs at room, depressed and elevated temperatures with the particular emphasis on the spatial distribution of DIM across the sheet thickness and iv) Experimental study of local chemistry and texture on austenite destabilization in ultrafine-grained AISI 301LN steels produced via reversion annealing after prior cold deformation. The chemical heterogeneity across the whole cross-section of various semi-product forms will be characterized qualitatively by color metallography and quantitatively by EDS technique. Volume fraction of DIM will be evaluated across the sheet thickness using X-ray technique and compared with Ferritescope data. Microstructure of deformed specimens and especially the DIM distribution across the sheet thickness will be visualized using color technique (Beraha II) and for detail characterization of DIM morphology at the microscale modern high-resolution techniques SEM–FEG, ECCI, EBSD and TEM will be adopted. The local texture analysis of ultrafine-grained steels will be performed in co-operation with CEITEC Brno University of Technology or TU Bergakademie Freiberg/Germany.

  22. Non-linear mechanical response of self-assembled polymer nanocomposites

    A key obstacle in the development of complex multiscale theories lies in our current inability to directly control the structure formation at multiple hierarchically arranged length scales. Directed self-assembly of surface decorated precisely defined NPs represents means for obtaining precisely controlled spatial arrangements of NPs. No theoretical framework has been published describing the laws governing multi length scale assembly of NPs into hierarchical superstructures in polymer continua. We aim at developing experimental and theoretical foundations for novel multiscale hierarchical predictive model of relationships between structural variables, nature and kinetics of the structural hierarchy formation via self-assembly of NSBBs and the physico-chemical and mechanical properties and functions in polymer nanocomposites.

  23. Optical and electrochemical monitoring of the state of charge of the flow-through redox electrochemical energy sources

    In this work the students will become familiar with current issues in energy storage electrochemical redox flow cells and with monitoring the extent of their state of charge. The research will lead to the design and development of methods that can be used for continuous monitoring of the state of charge status. Two basic principles will be used: first, optical tracking in those systems where the spectrum varies coloration due to state of charge, and second, in the absence of optical changes, measuring electrochemical properties.

Materials for these special applications will be tested in very high cycle fatigue regime, i.e. from 106 to 1010 cycles. Numerical simulations by FEM will be used to design specimens, tests will be carried out on ultrasonic testing machine, failure mechanisms will be searched using a scanning electron microscope.

The research will lead to the design and development of methods that can be used to continuously monitor the insulation properties of the dielectrics and to predict the practical life span of the insulators and their resistance to extreme temperatures. The principal experimental method will be the measurement of complex impedance at variable temperatures as well as the measurement of DC resistance and loss factor at 50 Hz. The methodology will be supplemented by monitoring aging due to sunlight exposure.
