Research Focus

1) Development of finite element software: (i) PMD (Package for Machine Design), the in-house package of IT; (ii) PERMAS, the package of INTES GmbH company, Stuttgart, Germany;

2) Contribution to the finite element theory: development of new finite elements in the field of heat transfer;

3) Analyses and computations of many projects for the power, aircraft, automotive, and chemical industries both in the Czech Republic and abroad;

4) Development of algorithms for numerical solutions to non-linear problems of mechanics of continuum with special interest in the contact/impact.
