Scientific societies
2005–2006 President of the IAPWS, member of the Czech Society of Biomechanics, 2010 elected to the World Council for Biomechanics, member of the Scientific Boards of two Czech Universities. Member of the scientific committees of many international conferences.

Professional interest
The irreversible thermodynamics and its applications to the problems of the phase transition kinetics, thermo-hydrodynamic stability of fluids and Hydrogen fuel cells. In the years 1975 to 1992 he was involved in the fluid flow analysis of the steam turbine blades of the company SKODA POWER. Besides this problem, he is well interested in the bio-thermodynamics, especially in the muscle energetic, bone remodelling, cartilage cultivation and in the hemodynamics of the human cardiovascular system.
