Ph.D.Machines and Equipment for Transportation

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

The study of Machines and Equipment for Transportation provides PhD students with scientific research and independent creative work in the field of research and development at the FMI, research institutions and in industry. Graduate benefits by theoretical knowledge gained by the study aimed at basic and applied research. PhD student obtains the methods of studying engineering subjects and gains a current knowledge in the field. He masters both computational and simulation tools, which are based on modern hardware and software. He manages methods of experimental research on models and real works related to the issues of the dissertation. The branch expands the theory of design of land and air transport vehicles, their combustion engines and mechanisms. Theoretical fundamentals of the branch are besides mathematics, the mechanics of multibody systems, mechanics of solid and fluid phase continua including transfer processes and experimental methods pertaining to the above spheres. Special courses in this branch are orientated towards dynamics of vehicles, aircraft and their components, namely gears. Attention is payed to passive vehicle security and biomechanics. Fluid mechanics is extended with special sections from aerodynamics, theory of turbulence, heat and mass transmission and physical chemistry, orientated particularly at combustion and production of harmful pollutants. In all the above fields courses are given on mathematical modelling (general and special) and special measuring methods. The topics of dissertations from mechanics, aerodynamics and thermodynamics pertain to application of fundamental general principles for determination of generalized properties of transportation machines which can be utilized in the process of optimization during development.

Graduate profile

His education based on deep knowledge and other skills will provide the PhD graduate with skill to evaluate and formulate achieved initial results deepending on the demands of research and development. His profile involves international presentation or realization of his results with regard to the protection of intellectual property.
