Proposal for loading tests of bridges - simulation and laboratory experiments
Bayer, Jan; Urushadze, Shota; Černý, Miloš
2018 - English
A new dynamic load testing of bridges is proposed and theoretically investigated. A transient analysis of passing vehicle over a bridge in ANSYS and an analytical program in MATLAB for the transient solution of piecewise linear mechanical structures were developed to assess the effects of the proposed dynamic load on a bridge model. According to the first laboratory experiments, it seems that the proposed travelling impulse load could surpass some of the shortcomings and limitations of the currently applied methods of bridge testing. The investigation is a part of a project aimed at drive-by identification of dynamic properties of bridges and further experimental and analytical research will follow. Keywords: dynamic loading tests; transient analysis; vibrations; vehicle-bridge interaction Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Lávka pro pěší Radotín - zatížení větrem dle EN 1991-1-4 a měření ve větrném tunelu
Göringer, J.; Hračov, Stanislav; Macháček, Michael
2018 - Czech
S ohledem na atypickou konstrukci lávky v Radotíně bylo nutno v rámci statického ověření řešit nestandardní účinky zatížení větrem, kdy EN 1991-1-4 poskytuje pro takto atypické konstrukce jen málo podpory. Zatížení větrem u takovéto konstrukce nevystupuje pouze jako náhradní statický účinek, ale zejména je nutné posoudit případné ztráty aerodynamické stability. Příspěvek předkládá postup stanovení problematiky podle EN 1991-1-4 včetně porovnání s výsledky z větrného tunelu. Due to the atypical design of the footbridge in Radotín the procedures for evaluation of the force coefficients presented in EN 1991-1-4 were experimentally verified in the wind tunnel. For the lack of the information about the structure behaviour on the edge of the aerodynamic instability the critical velocity for flutter was experimentally verified as well. The paper presents comparison of the approaches from EN 1991-1-4 with the results of the experiment.

Tourist interest in illicit zone of ice caves
Nováková, Eva; Kuda, František; Kubalíková, Lucie
2018 - English
Ledové sluje (Ice Caves) in the Podyjí National Park represents one of the most spectacular sites within the area. It consists of the large boulder field and several pseudokarst caverns on the north-western slope of the ridge that are very important from the ecological and geomorphological point of view. The access to the site is restricted for the visitors of National Park as there exists a risk of damage and disturbance of these unique phenomena; tourist can use the marked paths leading around the site, they can reach the top part of the ridge.\nCurrently, there are only several persons who have legal access to the site (employees of the National Park Administration and other researches with the permission issued by NP Administration). However, the installed sensor that counts the passages proved that the site is visited more frequently than it should be. The number of people who visit this site (situated within the first zone of National Park where there is no marked path and so the access is forbidden by decree) is quite alarming. Based on these findings, some proposals for the solution of this unfavourable situation are proposed and other possibilities how to avoid this undesirable phenomenon are discussed.\n Keywords: Podyji National Park; restricted area; passages monitoring Available in a digital repository NRGL

Generation of Intermittent Jet by Pulse-Modulated Synthetic Jets
Broučková, Zuzana
2018 - English
An axisymmetric air jet was excited using a pair of counter synthetic jets running in opposed direction. First, the control synthetic jets were measured alone. The driving signal was pulse modulated sinusoidal signal. After an adjustment, the primary axisymmetric jet was excited to the bifurcating mode, and its behavior was studied experimentally. For comparison purposes, a reference steady (unforced) jet from the same nozzle was also measured (Reynolds number was approximately 1300). The flow visualization and hot-wire anemometry techniques were used. Keywords: synthetic jet; pulse modulation; flow control Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Two Algorithms for Risk-averse Reformulation of Multi-stage Stochastic Programming Problems
Šmíd, Martin; Kozmík, Václav
2018 - English
Many real-life applications lead to risk-averse multi-stage stochastic problems, therefore effective solution of these problems is of great importance. Many tools can be used to their solution (GAMS, Coin-OR, APML or, for smaller problems, Excel), it is, however, mostly up to researcher to reformulate the problem into its deterministic equivalent. Moreover, such solutions are usually one-time, not easy to modify for different applications. We overcome these problems by providing a front-end software package, written in C++, which enables to enter problem definitions in a way close to their mathematical definition. Creating of a deterministic equivalent (and its solution) is up to the computer. In particular, our code is able to solve linear multi-stage with Multi-period Mean-CVaR or Nested Mean-CVaR criteria. In the present paper, we describe the algorithms, transforming these problems into their deterministic equivalents. Keywords: Multi-stage stochastic programming; deterministic equivalent; multi-period CVaR; nested CVaR; optimization algorithm Fulltext is available at external website.

Classification of distances in cosmology
Křížek, Michal; Mészáros, A.
2018 - English
In cosmology many different distances are defined: angular, comoving, Euclidean, Hubble, light-year, luminosity, Minkowski, parallax, proper motion, redshift, ... distance. There is not one single natural distance, since the universe is expanding, curved, and we look back in time. In this survey paper we will concentrate on geometrical interpretations of the above-mentioned distances.

Problem of competing risks with covariates: Application to an unemployment study
Volf, Petr
2018 - English
The study deals with the methods of statistical analysis in the situation of competing risks in the presence of regression. First, the problem of identification of marginal and joint distributions of competing random variables is recalled. The main objective is then to demonstrate that the parameters and, in particular, the correlation of competing variables, may depend on covariates. The approach is applied to solution of a real example with unemployment data. The model uses the Gauss copula and Cox’s regression model. Keywords: statistical analysis; competing risks; unemployment study Fulltext is available at external website.

Synergické efekty svařování laser - TIG
Kubíček, J.; Doležal, P.; Mrňa, Libor; Šebestová, Hana; Horník, Petr
2018 - Czech
Laserové svařování ve srovnání s konvenčními obloukovými metodami je doprovázeno rychlou rychlostí chlazení. To může vést ke vzniku nežádoucí mikrostruktury svařovaného kovu a tepelně postižené zóny některých ocelových tříd, což má negativní dopad na jejich mechanické vlastnosti. Předehřívání je poměrně problematické kvůli vysoké rychlosti svařování laserem. Byla testována možnost předehřívání teplem z obloukového výboje přidruženého hořáku TIG. Přesný držák byl vyroben pro upevnění hořáku na laserovou svařovací hlavu, umožňující umístění TIG elektrody směrem k laserovému paprsku a obrobku. Byla provedena řada ocelových zkoušek S460MC a S700MC s vysokou pevností. Účinek proudění TIG na mikrostrukturální změny byl prokázán. Některé svařovací experimenty byly porovnány s simulacemi svařování SYSWELD. Laser welding compared to conventional arc methods is accompanied by rapid cooling rates. It can lead to the formation of undesirable microstructure of the weld metal and heat affected zone of some steel grades which has a negative impact on their mechanical properties. The preheating is quite problematic because of high speed of laser welding. The possibility of preheating by the heat of the arc discharge of the associated TIG burner has been tested. Precise holder has been fabricated to fix the burner to the laser welding head allowing TIG electrode positioning towards the laser beam and the workpiece. A number of high strength steel S460MC and S700MC welding experiments was performed. The effect of TIG current on microstructural changes has been proven. Some welding experiments were compared to the SYSWELD welding simulations.\n Keywords: laser – TIG welding; cooling rate; HSLA steels; microstructure; tensile strength Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Vliv organických látek na charakter agregátů tvořených koagulací/flokulací při úpravě vody
Filipenská, Monika; Pivokonská, Lenka; Vašatová, Petra; Pivokonský, Martin
2018 - Czech
Cílem práce bylo popsat vliv různých znečišťujících příměsí (kaolinitové částice, COM peptidy/proteiny a jejich směs) na velikost, velikostní distribuci, tvar a strukturu agregátů tvořených v proměnných hydrodynamických podmínkách (různá gradient rychlosti) v konečné fázi vývoje agregace, tzv. steady state. Jako míchací zařízení byl zvolen Taylor-Couettův reaktor, který umožňuje neinvazivní pozorování agregátů. Vlastnosti agregátů byly vyhodnocovány metodou obrazové analýzy. Bylo zjištěno, že velikost a tvar agregátů je závislá na typu koagulačního činidla, typu koagulované přímesi a aplikovaném gradientu rychlosti. Železité koagulační činidlo produkuje větší a méně pravidelné agregáty než činidlo hlinité. Podle příměsi roste velikost (zároveň klesá kompaktnost a roste neuspořádanost) agregátů v pořadí kaolinit < COM < kaolinit + COM. Bylo zjištěno, že velikost agregátů se na aplikovaném gradientu rychlosti nemění plynule, jak bylo doposud předpokládání, ale při překročení hodnoty tzv. kritických gradientů rychlosti, dochází k její prudké změně. Změny ve velikosti agregátů se liší v závislosti na charakteru koagulovaných příměsí a byly vysvětleny pomocí rozdílných interakcí mezi znečišťující příměsí a koagulačním činidlem.

Dynamic Bayesian Networks for the Classification of Sleep Stages
Vomlel, Jiří; Kratochvíl, Václav
2018 - English
Human sleep is traditionally classified into five (or six) stages. The manual classification is time consuming since it requires knowledge of an extensive set of rules from manuals and experienced experts. Therefore automatic classification methods appear useful for this task. In this paper we extend the approach based on Hidden Markov Models by relating certain features not only to the current time slice but also to the previous one. Dynamic Bayesian Networks that results from this generalization are thus capable of modeling features related to state transitions. Experiments on real data revealed that in this way we are able to increase the prediction accuracy. Keywords: Dynamic Bayesian Network; Sleep Analysis Fulltext is available at external website.
