Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. Wishing that the warmth of the season be with you always!

Lipka awarded Alan Strunga for his master’s thesis

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 became associate professor

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

Lecture: Possibilities and Limits of Simulation of Continuous Casting

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering invites to the lecture: Possibilities and Limits of Simulation of Continuous Casting held by Dr. Alexander Vakhrushev 20 October at 10:00 AM in D5 416f Dr. Alexander Vakhrushev studied applied mathematics at Izhevsk State Technical University (Russia). After the graduation in 2001 he did his PhD at the Institute of the Applied Mechanics (Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences), defending

Jiří Hvožďa & Róbert Brachna – New members of our team

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.

The hollow fiber heat exchanger on the runway

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

Alan Strunga – New member of our team

It is our pleasure to welcome Alan Strunga in our laboratory. He joined our team as a PhD student after sucessfully finished the studies in field of chemistry. His disertation theses will deal with membrane distillation.  The thesis is supervised by dr. Tereza Kůdelová. He will also participate on the project in cooperation with Faculty of chemistry on the same topic.

Heatlab’s heat exchanger in the car

The end of year 2020 was a milestone for Heatlab polymeric hollow fiber team. The very first automotive radiator from polymeric hollow fiber was tested in the car. Heatlab researchers made an automotive radiator from 12 000 polyamid tubes. This radiator can withstand in long term temperatures up to 130°C. The radiator was installed into the car and then followed a test ride in the

Kryštof Mráz – New member of our team

It is our pleasure to welcome Kryštof Mráz in our laboratory. He joined our team as a PhD student. His topic of the thesis is 'New generation of cooling nozzle: variable geometry of nozzle orifice'. The thesis is supervised by dr. Jan Boháček. He will also continue on a numerical simulation of  heat transfer in porous oxide layer.  Kryštof has successfully completed his master's degree

For students [CZ] – Diplomové práce pro rok 2020/2021

Citlivostní analýza faktorů ovlivňujících sekundární chlazení kontinuálního lití Školitel: Petr Kotrbáček Ochlazování horkých povrchů vodními nebo vodovzdušnými tryskami je proces, který je v technické praxi velice často používán (například při plynulém odlévání ocelí). Do matematických modelů sledovaných procesů je třeba používat realistické okrajové podmínky, jejichž získání je velmi často obtížné a závislé na mnoha parametrech. Objasnění a zobecnění vlivu nejdůležitějších parametrů ostřiku na intenzitu přenosu
