Global instability of the rotating disk boundary layer

Lecture - Prof. Jonathan Healey, Keele University, Anglie, Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, lecture room A , May 19, 2010, 10:00 -11:00 Wednesday

When a disk rotates at constant angular velocity in otherwise still fluid a boundary layer flow is established close to the disk. Obviously the local velocity of the disk increases with radius, but to a first approximation, this radial variation of the basic flow can be neglected to produce a "local" parallel-flow linear stability theory.  »»» 

High-order LES benchmarking of confined rotor-stator flows

Lecture - Sébastien Poncet, Laboratoire M2P2, UMR 6181 CNRS – Aix-Marseille Université, Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, lecture room A, May 25, 2010 (Tuesday) 14:00

The highly accurate simulation of turbulent rotating flows within cavity is of interest for both engineering applications, such as designing rotational machinery, and fundamental research, as one of the simplest cases where the turbulent boundary layers are three-dimensional. Attempting to compute these flows using statistical approaches has had only partial success.  »»» 

Engineering Mechanics 2010

Conference - May 10–13, 2010, Svratka

Organizer: Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR

The objective of the 16th conference is to provide insight into the state of the art in solid mechanics, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics, namely in the context of the projects carried out in the Czech Republic. The conference will be held in the hotel ŽĎAS a.s., in the pictoresque scenery of the Žďárské mountains.  »»» 

Mechanical and ultrasonic testing of human skin in-vivo

Lecture - Benoît Emprin, Université de Franche-Comté, Besançon, France., Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, director's lecture room, February 10, 2010 (Wednesday), 10.00–11.00

Resume: The objective of ERASMUS project was further development and testing the new noninvasive diagnostics method of human skin under variable mechanical loading in-vivo. The method is based on monitoring instantaneous changes of ultrasound propagation along the skin.  »»» 

Colloquium Dynamics of Machines 2010

Conference - Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, Prague, February 2–3, 2010

The aim of the Colloquium is to facilitate the exchange of up to date information and knowledge among specialists in solid mechanics. The main attention will be focused on:  »»» 

Assessment of Physical Activity of a Human Body with Consideration of the Thermodynamics System

Lecture - Dipl.-Ing. Philipp Rauschenberger, Institut für Thermodynamik der Luft- und Raumfahrt, Universität Stuttgart, Germany, Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, lecture room A , February 9, 2010 (Tuesday), 10:00 -11:00

Abstract: Model of the human cardiovascular system is applied for the quantitative evaluation of the human activity. The entropy production was used as a relevant quantity. The comparison with the ergonometric tests is shown.

Presenter: Dipl.-Ing. Philipp Rauschenberger

Prof. Václav Tesař awarded with the Moulton medal


The team of scientists from the University of Sheffield, including Prof. Václav Tesař, have received the 2009 Moulton medal for their paper entitled On the design and simulation of an airlift loop bioreactor with microbubble generation by fluidic oscillation published in Food & Bioproducts Processing, 2009. The medal has been awarded anually by The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IchemE) since 1929 for the best scientific paper in the field.  »»»
