The remarkable properties of shape memory alloys (SMA) that are utilized in a number of useful applications are due to a phase transformation between austenite and martensite. In many situations, the transformation does not proceed homogenously, but in the form of macroscopic transformation bands, i.e. in a highly localized manner. »»»
Zuzana Broučková received the "Outstanding Paper Award" for the best paper in the "Jets" session at the HEFAT 2016 conference in Spain, held on 11-13 July 2016. The paper was entitled: Z. Broučková and Z. Trávníček: "Visualization and Heat Transfer Study of a Synthetic Jet Impinging on a Circular Cylinder".
The aim of the Colloquium is to facilitate the exchange of up to date information and knowledge among specialists in structural and multibody dynamics, in coupled interacting systems as aero-elasticity, hydro-elasticity, bio-mechanics, systems with feedbacks and mechatronics. The papers and its presentations will be divided into the two sections and focused on the next problems: »»»
In December 3 – 4, our institute will be visited by prof. Elisabeth Aeby-Gautier (Institut Jean Lamour, Nancy, France) and prof. Benoit Appolaire (CNRS-ONERA, Chatillon-Paris, France), who are both interested in experimental characterization and mathematical modelling of microstructures in metastable titanium alloys. »»»
Cílem kolokvia je umožnit výměnu aktuálních informací a poznatků mezi odborníky dynamiky těles a jejich soustav, problémů interakce vázaných systémů jako jsou aeroelasticita a hydroelasticita, biomechanika, systémů se zpětnou vazbou a mechatroniky: Příspěvky a jejich prezentace budou zaměřeny na tato témata: »»»
Technology Perspectives for Energy Storage is a collaborative workshop involving scientists, power industry leaders and government officials to outline the future and role of energy storage in ensuring secure energy and to discuss the promising topics for research into energy storage.
The workshop seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to experience with energy storage with a strong emphasis on promoting national awareness and inspiring action towards solving emerging problems. Through this event we hope to present promising research themes and technologies and challenge the attendees to discuss the feasibility of the technologies and trends for energy storage. »»»
The Colloquium will be held in the Institute of Thermomechanics of the CAS v. v. i. in Prague. The subject covers all fields of fluid dynamics: theoretical, experimental and mathematical modeling, basic and applied. »»»
