in doctoral study programs

  • P2301 Mechanical Engineering - field 3901V003 Applied Mechanics
    • specialization Fluid mechanics and thermodynamics

    • specialization Equipment for thermal engineering

In these specializations, students are introduced to modern methods of applied fluid mechanics, turbulent transport of mass and heat, which are complemented by appropriate experiments, especially flow visualization, anemometry and computer simulation using the latest software and hardware. Attention is also paid to the basics of energy and operation of energy machinery and equipment. A separate group consists of subjects focused on the technical side of environmental protection, including the energy use of waste and the ecology of energy processes. In scientific research, the department is focused on thermal energy problems, internal and external aerodynamics, the theory of turbulent flow processes, thermal and laser anemometry and the use of the Monte-Carlo method for modeling the interaction processes of low-energy gamma radiation with a polycomponent sample. The department also plays a significant role in solving environmental issues in northern Bohemia and the Nisa Euroregion.

Members of the department are co-investigators of the research project MSM4674788501 "Optimization of machine properties in interaction with work processes and humans" with a focus on numerical and experimental research of thermal engineering processes, they also participate in the activities of the TEXTI II Research Center. No. 1M0553 - Section C and the Research Center of Internal Combustion Engines J. Božek II. No. 1M0568. For teaching and research, the department has laboratories for thermal engineering measurements, thermoanemometry, optical methods, hydrodynamic visualization, energy machines and equipment and computer fluid dynamics.
