The role of solvents in the preparation of hydrophobic nanofibrous membrane containing fumed silica
Peer, Petra; Polášková, M.; Musilová, I.; Filip, Petr
2018 - English
It is well-known that a type of used fumed silica nanoparticles plays a dominant role in wettability of the corresponding nanofibrous mats. As a result, the desired contact angle can be approximately achieved by a choice of adequate fumed silica nanoparticles. However, less attention has been hitherto paid to an active role of solvents in connection with the tailoring this contact angle. For analysis we used poly(vinyl butyral) representing electrospun-friendly material, various types of fumed silica nanoparticles and two solvents - methanol and ethanol. It is demonstrated that a choice of polymer solvents plays a significant role in contact angle changes. Hence, in combination of the type of fumed silica nanoparticles and the type of solvent it is possible to achieve a finer partition of the required contact angles.

Thermal induced morphological changes of poly(ethylene oxide) nanofibrous webs
Polášková, M.; Peer, Petra; Ponížil, P.; Čermák, R.
2018 - English
The crystallinity of fibres prepared by electrospinning shows lower level in comparison with samples processed by common technologies such as moulding or film casting. Thus, the attempts to improve the structure of electrospun fibres in order to increase physical and mechanical properties of nonwoven webs are obvious. Post-process thermal treatment is one of the possibilities of the crystallinity enhancement that can be easily included to the finishing operation of final products. For the experiment we used poly(ethylene oxide) representing electrospun-friendly material and two solvents - methanol and water, both ensuring good electrospinnability. It is demonstrated that a choice of polymer solvents plays a significant role in fibre diameter and their capabilities to resist applied heat. However, in all cases the enhancement of crystallinity is detected at the short time of thermal exposure.

2017 - Czech
Velikost kapek při míchání dvou vzájemně nemísitelných kapalin závisí především na působení vnějších sil. Smyková napětí působící na částici v závislosti na fyzikálních parametrech (povrchové napětí, hustota, viskozita) ovlivňují konečnou distribuci velikostí tvořených kapek. V první fázi jsme se pokusili modelovat dvě reálné nemísitelné kapaliny voda-silikonový olej, které jsou dány svými vlastnostmi. A to na jednoduchém případě výtoku z kapiláry, kde jsme se snažili ověřit, zda a jak moc přesně lze modelovat chování tohoto systému s různými odchylkami fyzikálních parametrů. Dále jsme se snažili určit rovnovážné a mezní stavy v závislosti na zadaných fyzikálních vlastnostech. The CFD simulation of simple two phase system using VOF model was verified by the real measurements. The system of two immiscible liquids silicone oil and water was tested on simple task with droplet formation from immersed jet. The setup of physical properties in CFD simulations was corrected by the experimental results. Keywords: VOF; liquid; multiphase Available at various institutes of the ASCR

2017 - Czech
V příspěvku jsou prezentovány experimentální výsledky proudění kolem kulovité částice, kdy částice je umístěna na tenké tyčce a její pohyb je řízen asynchronním motorkem. Pro určení rychlostních polí kolem pohybující se částice byla použita metoda 2D PIV. Měření se uskutečnila v kanále s volnou hladinou, jehož dno bylo pokryto jednou vrstvou skleněných tyček o průměru 6mm. The paper presents experimental results of the flow around the spherical particle, where the particles are placed on a thin rod and its movement is controlled by a step motor. To determine the velocity fields around the moving particle, the 2D PIV method was used. The measurement was carried out in the open channel, the bottom of which was covered with one layer of 6 mm diameter glass bars. Keywords: open channel; PIV; turbulence Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Influence of land cover and altitude on soilmoisturespatio-temporal variability
Šípek, Václav; Hnilica, Jan; Tesař, Miroslav
2017 - English
An understanding of spatial and temporal variation of soil moisture is essential for studying other hydrological, biological or chemical soil processes, such as water movement, microbial activity and biogeochemical cycling (Bruckner et al., 1999, Ridolfi et al., 2003). Although the world-wide total amount of water stored in the soil profile is negligible compared to ocean and glacier storages, it represents a crucial variable concerning the water resources and agricultural management. This is valid especially in the context of ongoing shift in climate. Soil water exhibits a tremendous heterogeneity in space and time (Gomez-Plaza et al., 2000). Therefore, spatial and temporal variations of soil moisture have always been the critical issue. The spatial variability is influenced by variety of factors encompassing the topographical effect on lateral water redistribution (Williams et al., 2003), radiation (Grayson et al., 1997, Geroy et al., 2011), soil texture and structure (Famiglietti et al., 1998, Pan and Peters-Lidard, 2008), vegetation (Teuling and Troch, 2005), climate (Lawrence and Hornberger, 2007), precipitation pattern (Keim et al., 2005) and antecedent soil moisture (Rosenbaum et al., 2012). The land use influence on the soil moisture content variation is of complex a character covering several above mentioned factors. However, it is determined namely by the different vegetation cover, which results in different rates of interception and transpiration. It also strongly influences the soil hydraulic properties, i.e. hydraulic conductivity and water retention characteristics (Zhou et al, 2008). Hence, the reaction of an area to a rainfall and also the temporal variability of the soil moisture content might be influenced by the present land cover. Nevertheless, the studies comparing the influence of several land covers in the longer periods are missing. This knowledge would be valuable especially in the context of extreme climatic events that are present nowadays. In central Europe, the period of major floods (1997, 2002, 2013) was followed by serious dry spells (2003, 2011–2012, 2015) (Trnka et al., 2015). This observed hydrological extremity raised the questions of sustainable water management. One of the possible management practices in consideration is represented by the land cover changes intended to hold more water in the landscape and simultaneously to attenuate the rainfall-runoff response. Moreover, previous studies have investigated that spatial and temporal variation of soil water under a certain land use type, and drawing significant research attention is lacking on the differences of dynamics of soil water conditions under different land use types. Thus, it is necessary to understand the comparisons of the dynamics of soil water conditions under different land use types (Niu et al., 2015) The main aim of the presented study is therefore to understand the soil moisture variability in the vegetation season under four different land covers (coniferous/deciduous forest, meadow, grassland). This analysis is conducted in five consecutive years, encompassing both dry and wet periods. The influence of altitude is also studied in the coniferous forest.

Simulace pohybu částic v nakloněném potrubí pomocí kombinace CFD a DEM
Mildner, Michael; Konfršt, Jiří; Kysela, Bohuš; Chára, Zdeněk; Vlasák, Pavel
2017 - Czech
Numerická simulace proudění rozplavených hrubozrnných suspenzí (hydrotransport, odlučovače atp.) vyžaduje použití výpočtů pro vícefázové proudění. Za předpokladu toku suspenze (např. vody a pevných částic) v uzavřených profilech bez přístupu vzduchu můžeme úlohu zjednodušit na dvoufázové proudění (voda-pevné částice). Vhodným nástrojem pro výpočet takovéhoto dvoufázového proudění je kombinace metody konečných objemů FVM s metodou diskrétních elementů DEM. Metoda diskrétních elementů je použita na řešení kolizí mezi jednotlivými částicemi, což je nezbytnou podmínkou pro reálné řešení proudění více- koncentrovaných suspenzí. Numerická simulace byla provedena na jednoduché geometrii nakloněného potrubí, kde jsou získané výsledky porovnávány s výsledky získanými na experimentální trase pro transport suspenzí opatřené sklopnou částí. Numerical flow simulation of scattered coarse-grained suspensions (hydrotransport, separators, etc.) requires the use of calculations for multiphase flow. Assuming the suspension flow (eg. water and solid particles) in closed profiles without air access, the task can be simplified to a two-phase flow (water-solid particles). A suitable tool for calculating such two-phase flow is the combination of the finite volume method FVM, with the discrete element method DEM. The discrete element method is used to solve collisions between individual particles, which is a prerequisite for a real solution of more concentrated suspension flow. Numerical simulation was performed on a simple geometry of inclined pipeline, where the obtained results were compared with the results obtained on the experimental slurry transport route equipped with a foldable part.

In-situ measurement of particle size distribution in an agitated vessel
Kysela, Bohuš; Konfršt, Jiří; Chára, Zdeněk; Šulc, R.; Ditl, P.
2017 - English
Agitation of solid-liquid suspension or two immiscible liquids is a frequent operation in chemical and metallurgical industries (suspension/emulsion polymerization, catalytic chemical reaction, hydrometallurgical solvent extraction). The product quality, yield and economy of the processes are significantly affected by a mixing process. Prediction of mean particle/drop size and particle/drop size distribution (PSD) during the agitation is fundamental for emulsification, suspension polymerization, solid particle dispersion or crystallization. \nThe aim of this contribution is to propose a simple method of in-situ measurement of particle size distribution. The particle size measurement is based on an image analysis performed on raw image records. Evaluation method based on the best focused particles with sharp detected boundaries enhanced by the analysis of particle circularity was developed. Precise spherical mono-disperse steel and plastic particles were used to verify accuracy of evaluation method. The method has been proposed for the measurement of the time evolution of the drop size distribution in liquid-liquid dispersion in an agitated tank. The effect of droplet size distribution on the impeller speed in wateroil dispersion in agitated vessel was obtained.
