Proposal for loading tests of bridges - simulation and laboratory experiments
Bayer, Jan; Urushadze, Shota; Černý, Miloš
2018 - English
A new dynamic load testing of bridges is proposed and theoretically investigated. A transient analysis of passing vehicle over a bridge in ANSYS and an analytical program in MATLAB for the transient solution of piecewise linear mechanical structures were developed to assess the effects of the proposed dynamic load on a bridge model. According to the first laboratory experiments, it seems that the proposed travelling impulse load could surpass some of the shortcomings and limitations of the currently applied methods of bridge testing. The investigation is a part of a project aimed at drive-by identification of dynamic properties of bridges and further experimental and analytical research will follow. Keywords: dynamic loading tests; transient analysis; vibrations; vehicle-bridge interaction Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Tourist interest in illicit zone of ice caves
Nováková, Eva; Kuda, František; Kubalíková, Lucie
2018 - English
Ledové sluje (Ice Caves) in the Podyjí National Park represents one of the most spectacular sites within the area. It consists of the large boulder field and several pseudokarst caverns on the north-western slope of the ridge that are very important from the ecological and geomorphological point of view. The access to the site is restricted for the visitors of National Park as there exists a risk of damage and disturbance of these unique phenomena; tourist can use the marked paths leading around the site, they can reach the top part of the ridge.\nCurrently, there are only several persons who have legal access to the site (employees of the National Park Administration and other researches with the permission issued by NP Administration). However, the installed sensor that counts the passages proved that the site is visited more frequently than it should be. The number of people who visit this site (situated within the first zone of National Park where there is no marked path and so the access is forbidden by decree) is quite alarming. Based on these findings, some proposals for the solution of this unfavourable situation are proposed and other possibilities how to avoid this undesirable phenomenon are discussed.\n Keywords: Podyji National Park; restricted area; passages monitoring Available in a digital repository NRGL

Generation of Intermittent Jet by Pulse-Modulated Synthetic Jets
Broučková, Zuzana
2018 - English
An axisymmetric air jet was excited using a pair of counter synthetic jets running in opposed direction. First, the control synthetic jets were measured alone. The driving signal was pulse modulated sinusoidal signal. After an adjustment, the primary axisymmetric jet was excited to the bifurcating mode, and its behavior was studied experimentally. For comparison purposes, a reference steady (unforced) jet from the same nozzle was also measured (Reynolds number was approximately 1300). The flow visualization and hot-wire anemometry techniques were used. Keywords: synthetic jet; pulse modulation; flow control Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Two Algorithms for Risk-averse Reformulation of Multi-stage Stochastic Programming Problems
Šmíd, Martin; Kozmík, Václav
2018 - English
Many real-life applications lead to risk-averse multi-stage stochastic problems, therefore effective solution of these problems is of great importance. Many tools can be used to their solution (GAMS, Coin-OR, APML or, for smaller problems, Excel), it is, however, mostly up to researcher to reformulate the problem into its deterministic equivalent. Moreover, such solutions are usually one-time, not easy to modify for different applications. We overcome these problems by providing a front-end software package, written in C++, which enables to enter problem definitions in a way close to their mathematical definition. Creating of a deterministic equivalent (and its solution) is up to the computer. In particular, our code is able to solve linear multi-stage with Multi-period Mean-CVaR or Nested Mean-CVaR criteria. In the present paper, we describe the algorithms, transforming these problems into their deterministic equivalents. Keywords: Multi-stage stochastic programming; deterministic equivalent; multi-period CVaR; nested CVaR; optimization algorithm Fulltext is available at external website.

Problem of competing risks with covariates: Application to an unemployment study
Volf, Petr
2018 - English
The study deals with the methods of statistical analysis in the situation of competing risks in the presence of regression. First, the problem of identification of marginal and joint distributions of competing random variables is recalled. The main objective is then to demonstrate that the parameters and, in particular, the correlation of competing variables, may depend on covariates. The approach is applied to solution of a real example with unemployment data. The model uses the Gauss copula and Cox’s regression model. Keywords: statistical analysis; competing risks; unemployment study Fulltext is available at external website.

Classification of distances in cosmology
Křížek, Michal; Mészáros, A.
2018 - English
In cosmology many different distances are defined: angular, comoving, Euclidean, Hubble, light-year, luminosity, Minkowski, parallax, proper motion, redshift, ... distance. There is not one single natural distance, since the universe is expanding, curved, and we look back in time. In this survey paper we will concentrate on geometrical interpretations of the above-mentioned distances. Keywords: standard cosmological model; cosmological principle; Friedmann equation; cosmological parameters; Einstein static universe Available in digital repository of the ASCR

Very low energy electron transmission spectromicroscopy
Daniel, Benjamin; Radlička, Tomáš; Piňos, Jakub; Mikmeková, Šárka; Konvalina, Ivo; Frank, Luděk; Müllerová, Ilona
2018 - English
For more than 25 years, Scanning Low Energy Electron Microscopy (SLEEM) has been\ndeveloped at the Institute of Scientific Instruments (ISI), with several commercially available SEMs adapted with a cathode lens for SLEEM use, as well as a dedicated self-built UHV\nSLEEM setup.\nFor a better understanding of contrast formation at low energies, especially at very low\nenergies below 50 eV, where the local density of states plays an important role, more general\nknowledge about the interaction of (very) low energy electrons with solids is required. This\nwill be achieved using a newly developed ultra-high vacuum (UHV SLEEM) setup which\nincludes several enhancements compared to other available machines. Data processing is\npresented in, and processed data will be further used and tested with the Monte Carlo\nsimulation package BRUCE, which is being developed by Werner et al. at TU Vienna.

Hiding e-beam exposure fields by deterministic 2D pattering
Horáček, Miroslav; Knápek, Alexandr; Matějka, Milan; Krátký, Stanislav; Urbánek, M.; Mika, Filip; Kolařík, Vladimír
2018 - English
The high stability and good current homogeneity in the spot of the e-beam writer is crucial to\nthe exposure quality, particularly in the case of large-area structures when gray-scale\nlithography is used. Even though the deflection field distortion is calibrated regularly and\nbeam focus and beam astigmatism is dynamically corrected over the entire deflection field, we can observe disturbances in the exposed relief.\nRecently, we presented a method that makes use of e–beam exposure imperfection by\nintroducing marginally visible high–frequency diffraction gratings of variable pitch that fill in\nseparate orthogonal exposure fields. The actually presented approach follows up our\nresearch on aperiodic arrangements of optical primitives, especially on the phyllotactic–\nlike arrangement of sub–micron relief optical elements. This approach is extended from the\ndiffraction element arrangement to the higher level of exposure fields arrangements.

STEM modes in SEM
Konvalina, Ivo; Paták, Aleš; Mikmeková, Eliška; Mika, Filip; Müllerová, Ilona
2018 - English
The segmented semiconductor STEM detector in the Magellan 400 FEG SEM microscope\n(https://www.fei.com/) is used to detect transmitted electrons (TEs) and allows observing\nsamples in four imaging modes. Two modes of objective lens, namely high resolution (HR)\nand ultra-high resolution (UHR), differ by their resolution and by the presence or absence of\na magnetic field around the sample. If the beam deceleration (BD) mode is chosen, then\nan electrostatic field around the sample is added and two further microscope modes HR + BD\nand UHR + BD, become available. Trajectories of TEs are studied with regard to their angular\nand energy distribution in each mode in this work.\n Available at various institutes of the ASCR
