Michal Pohanka from the Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Laboratory was the absolute winner of the Employee Challenge On-Your-Own-Power (“Na vlastní pohon”). He cycled an incredible 1,028.6 kilometres to and from work. A total of 48 colleagues from 13 FME institutes and departments took part in the challenge during May. The event aimed to promote the idea of eco-friendly transport by bike, on foot or
According to International Energy Agency, the global electric car stock hit the 10 million mark, a 43% increase over 2019, representing a 1% stock share, after a decade of rapid growth. One of the biggest challenges of e-automobility is battery thermal management. Temperature level, profile, and uniformity impact the electrochemical reactions substantially. Therefore, battery system performance, safety, and lifespan. Reliability and longevity are critical factors

Alan Strunga, a PhD student in the Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Laboratory, was awarded by Lipka, one of the oldest and largest educational organizations for environmental training in Czechia. He placed 3rd in the competition for the best master's thesis. Strunga studied how much the Brno population comes into contact with pesticide residues. The methods developed in his work are now routinely used with
Jan Boháček finished his habilitation and became associate professor this month. Jan Boháček operates in the field of heat transfer. Mainly, he focuses on CFD simulations. His habilitation is called ‘Simulation and Modeling of Horizontal Centrifugal Casting’. The habilitation thesis is a logical outcome of Boháček’s research activities at the Chair of Simulation and Modeling of Metallurgical Processes at Montanuniversitaet Leoben between the years 2010

It is our pleasure to welcome Jiří Hvožďa and Róbert Brachna to our laboratory. They have just started their PhD studies after graduating from mathematical engineering. Jiří will focus on the applications of polymeric hollow fibre heat exchangers in the chemical industry. Róbert will deal with improvements of computational software for inverse problems of heat transfer.
Tuesday 22. 6. 2021 evening was exciting time for Heatlab. After 9 p.m. the Brno Airport runway was closed and the hollow fiber team from Heatlab in cooperation with Dr. Vančura (Institute of Automotive Engineering) continue a research of polymeric hollow fiber automotive radiator there. The polymeric hollow fiber heat exchanger consists of 12,240 fibers with a length of 480 mm. The polymeric hollow fibers
