  • Alternative technology of constructing masonry structures designed for areas with increased seismic activity 

    Sedlmajer, Martin; Zach, Jiří; Novák, Vítězslav; Peterková, Jitka; Horský, Antonín (Elsevier, 2016-07-21)
    The Czech Republic is a country which generally sees low seismic activity; however, this activity needs to be taken into account in ca 50 % of the country’s area with 10 districts being considered as having seismic activity ...
  • Development of Vacuum Insulation Panels with Utilization of Organic By-Products 

    Zach, Jiří; Novák, Vítězslav; Peterková, Jitka; Bubeník, Jan (MDPI, 2020-03-04)
    The need for the development of new, advanced building materials increases every year, especially due to the necessary diminution of energy performance for building structures and for building production itself (including ...
  • The Effect of Shielding Barriers on Solar Air Collector Gains 

    Šikula, Ondřej; Plášek, Josef; Hirš, Jiří (Elsevier, 2013-08-22)
    The paper deals with numerical simulations of the impact of location and orientation of the solar air collector located on the roof of a building and on its thermal performance. The solar collector is used to preheat an ...
  • Evaluation of Investment Risks in CBA with Monte Carlo Method 

    Korytárová, Jana; Pospíšilová, Barbora (Mendel University in Brno, 2015-03-30)
    Investment decisions are at the core of any development strategy. Economic growth and welfare depend on productive capital, infrastructure, human capital, knowledge, total factor productivity and the quality of institutions. ...
  • Numerical Simulation of the Effect of Heat Gains in the Heating Season 

    Šikula, Ondřej; Plášek, Josef; Hirš, Jiří (Elsevier, 2012-03-08)
    This paper is concerned with the description and verification of an energy model of a building using the BSim software. The aim is to determine the effect of the basic heat gains on the energy consumption of a building. ...
  • Study of behaviour of thermal insulation materials under extremely low pressure 

    Zach, Jiří; Peterková, Jitka; Bubeník, Jan (EDP Sciences, 2019-09-02)
    In most thermal insulation materials, reduced internal pressure improves thermal insulation properties. It reduces heat transport by convection as well as heat conduction in gases in the material´s pore structure. The ...
  • Study of the Use of Vacuum Insulation as Integrated Thermal Insulation in Ceramic Masonry Blocks 

    Zach, Jiří; Novák, Vítězslav (Elsevier, 2016-08-03)
    Vacuum insulation panels (VIP) are thermal insulation materials with very low thermal conductivity. VIPs are commonly used in a broad spectrum of technical fields; however, they only see a small-scale application in civil ...
  • Technology of concrete with low generation of hydration heat 

    Zach, Jiří; Sedlmajer, Martin; Peterková, Jitka; Nevařil, Aleš (Elsevier, 2013-10-23)
    Modern technology of concrete includes a comprehensive elaboration of proposal related to concrete composition depending on the required parameters of fresh and hardened concrete. One of the fields related to the technologies ...
  • Utilization of by-products for vacuum insulation panels production 

    Zach, Jiří; Peterková, Jitka; Novák, Vítězslav (IOP Publishing, 2018-07-12)
    The paper deals with the possibilities of utilization of alternative raw materials from the textile industry for the production of vacuum insulation panels with extremely low thermal conductivity value. The paper presents ...
