Probability density determination by means of Gibbs entropy probability density
Náprstek, Jiří; Fischer, Cyril
2019 - English
A method of random response investigation of a nonlinear dynam-ical system is discussed. In particular, the solution of the probability density of a single/multi-degree of freedom (SDOF/MDOF) system response is investigated. Multiple stable equilibrium states with possible jumps of the snap-through type among them are considered. The system is Hamiltonian with weak damping excited by a set of non-stationary Gaussian white noises. The solution, which is based on the Gibbs principle of the maximum entropy of probability, can be employed in various branches of engineering. The search for the extreme of the Gibbs entropy functional is formulated as a constrained optimization problem. The secondary constraints follow from the Fokker-Planck equation (FPE) for the system considered or from the system of ordinary di_erential equations for the stochastic moments of the response derived from the relevant FPE Keywords: Fokker-Planck equation; Gibbs entropy functional; maximum entropy; probability density principle Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Laser-generated nanoparticles to change physical properties of solids, liquids and gases
Torrisi, Alfio; Cutroneo, Mariapompea; Ceccio, Giovanni; Cannavó, Antonino; Horák, Pavel; Torrisi, L.; Vacík, Jiří
2019 - English
Synthesis of nanoparticles was possible employing a Nd: YAG pulsed laser at fundamental harmonic. The production of nanoparticles in water depends mainly on the laser parameters (pulse duration, energy, wavelength), the irradiation conditions (focal spot, repetition rate, irradiation time) and the medium where the ablation occurs (solid target, water, solution concentration). The nanoparticles can be introduced in solids, liquids or gases to change many physical characteristics. The optical properties of polymers and solutions, the wetting ability of liquids, the electron density of laser-generated plasma, represent some examples that can be controlled by the concentration of metallic nanoparticles (Au, Ag, Ti, Cu). Some bio-medical applications will be presented and discussed. Keywords: bio-medical applications; laser; nanoparticles Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Bolts loading in the stronly stressed rock mass
Waclawik, Petr; Sahendra, Ram; Šňupárek, Richard
2019 - Czech
The trial test of new mining method “Roadway-Pillar” was finished at the underground coal mine – ČSM Mine. The wide ranging monitoring was focused on the load bearing capacity of coal pillars and strata deformation changes induced by the roadway-pillar mining method. The results of monitoring allowed bolts loading and loading characteristics to be described. Further, an attempt is made to understand the rock bolt loading characteristics at different stages of rib dilation using numerical modelling with the available properties of rock mass and reinforcement for the studied site. Elastic and Mohr Coulomb strain-softening constitutive models are considered in FLAC3D to evaluate the performance of the rock bolts. Při zkušebním provozu modifikované metody komora-pilíř s ponechanými stabilními pilíři, nazvané chodba-pilíř byla na Dole ČSM použita svorníková výztuž stropu a boků chodeb (stěn ponechaných pilířů). Zatížení a deformace svorníků byly měřeny v rámci rozsáhlého geotechnického monitoringu [1,2]. Následně bylo použito matematického modelování v softwaru Itasca FLAC3D [3] pro lepší objasnění zatěžovacích charakteristik svorníkové výztuže.

The scalar-valued score functions of continuous probability distribution
Fabián, Zdeněk
2019 - English
In this report we give theoretical basis of probability theory of continuous random variables based on scalar valued score functions. We maintain consistently the following point of view: It is not the observed value, which is to be used in probabilistic and statistical considerations, but its 'treated form', the value of the scalar-valued score function of distribution of the assumed model. Actually, the opinion that an observed value of random variable should be 'treated' with respect to underlying model is one of main ideas of the inference based on likelihood in classical statistics. However, a vector nature of Fisher score functions of classical statistics does not enable a consistent use of this point of view. Instead, various inference functions are suggested and used in solutions of various statistical problems. Inference function of this report is the scalar-valued score function of distribution.

Deformation response of polydimethylsiloxane substrates subjected to uniaxial quasi-static loading
Martino, F.; Vinařský, V.; Šleichrt, Jan; Kytýř, Daniel
2019 - English
To investigate cellular response of cardiomyocytes to substrate mechanics, biocompatible material with stiffness in physiological range is needed. Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based material Sylgard 184 is used for construction of microfluidic organ on chip devices for cell culture due to ease of device preparation, bonding, and possibility of surface functionalization. However it has stiffness orders of magnitude out of physiological range. Therefore we adapted recently published protocol [1] aiming to prepare substrates which offer stiffness in physiological range 5−100 kPa using various mixtures of Sylgard 527 and Sylagard 184. The inhouse developed loading device with the loading capacity of 3 kN with 1 μm position tracking accuracy and sub-micron position sensitivity was employed for this experimental campaign. The experiments were controlled by the proprietary LinuxCNC software running on the real-time kernel [2]. All batches of the samples were subjected to monotonic compression loading. During the displacement driven experiment with loading rate 10 μm · s−1 the samples with diameter 12.00 ± 0.05mm and height 14 − 16mm were compressed to minimally 50% deformation. Because of high differences in the samples stiffness various load cells with nominal capacity 50N, 10N, and 1N was used for the most reliable force logging. Material properties for all batches were derived from a set of tests under dry and simulated physiological conditions. The results are represented in the form of stress-strain curves calculated from the acquired force and displacement data and elastic moduli are estimated as secant up to 10% deformation.

Moving dynamic test loads for road bridges - a case study
Bayer, Jan; Urushadze, Shota
2019 - English
Two types of dynamic testing load for bridges - driving sprung mass and driving impulse load - areexamined from the drive-by identification point of view. Numerical studies in ANSYS using contact elements and in MATLAB using a modal solution together with coupling force were performed. Equations for the estimation of the impulse load caused by a rolling cogwheel were suggested. The experiments confirmed that a driving impulse load is more efficient in exciting bridge vibrations. This, together with the fact that impulse loading is not sensitive to surface roughness, leads to the conclusion that, as a method for bridge health monitoring, impulse loading is more promising than using a driving sprung mass Keywords: drive-by identification; bridge testing; moving sprung mass; impulse loading; vibration measurements; laboratory experiments Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Laplacian preconditioning of elliptic PDEs: Localization of the eigenvalues of the discretized operator
Gergelits, Tomáš; Mardal, K.-A.; Nielsen, B. F.; Strakoš, Z.
2019 - English
This contribution represents an extension of our earlier studies on the paradigmatic example of the inverse problem of the diffusion parameter estimation from spatio-temporal measurements of fluorescent particle concentration, see [6, 1, 3, 4, 5]. More precisely, we continue to look for an optimal bleaching pattern used in FRAP (Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching), being the initial condition of the Fickian diffusion equation maximizing a sensitivity measure. As follows, we define an optimization problem and we show the special feature (so-called complementarity principle) of the optimal binary-valued initial conditions.

Large-area scans of paintings with high resolution
Vopálenský, Michal; Kumpová, Ivana
2019 - Czech
The aim of the measurement was to obtain the radiographs from historical paintings from the Faculty of Restoration of the University Pardubice. Due to the dimensions of the paintings (up to 90 x 110 cm) it was necessary to develop a suitable measurement procedure for successive scanning of the paintings in the TORATOM device. The resulting data are important for the planning of the restoration processes of the paintings and can help to discover otherwise invisible details, like underpaintings etc. Cílem měření bylo získat radiografická data z historických maleb, zapůjčených Fakultou restaurování Univerzity Pardubice. Vzhledem k rozměru obrazů (až 90 × 110 cm) bylo třeba vytvořit vhodnou měřicí proceduru pro postupné skenování pláten v zařízení TORATOM. Výsledná data mají význam pro plánování restaurátorských prací na obrazech a mohou pomoci odhalit jinak neviditelné detaily v malbách, např. podmalby apod.
