  • Assessment of empirical formulae for determining the hydraulic conductivity of glass beads 

    Říha, Jaromír; Petrula, Lubomír; Hala, Mario; Alhasan, Zakaraya (De Gruyter Open, 2018-08-14)
    Empirical formulae are often used in practice to quickly and cheaply determine the hydraulic conductivity of soil. Numerous relations based on dimensional analysis and experimental measurements have been published for the ...
  • An Evaluation of the Mathematical Models of Energy Piles 

    Oravec, Jakub; Šikula, Ondřej; Nováková, Iva (Sciendo, 2020-04-03)
    A current trend is to reduce the energy performance of buildings by using alternative sources for heating and cooling. One of the most promising, and so far unprecedented sources of heating and cooling, is the use of energy ...
  • Lead isotope evolution of the Central European upper mantle: Constraints from the Bohemian Massif 

    Krmíčková, Simona; Krmíček, Lukáš; Romer, Rolf L.; Ulrych, Jaromír (CHINA UNIV GEOSCIENCES, BEIJING, 2020-05-15)
    The Pb isotope composition of the upper mantle beneath Central Europe is heterogeneous due to the subduction of regionally contrasting material during the Variscan and Alpine orogenies. Late Variscan to Cenozoic mantle-derived ...
  • Influence of Pressure Grouting on the Anchors Carrying Capacity in Fine Grained Soil 

    Chalmovský, Juraj; Miča, Lumír (Elsevier, 2013-05-16)
    The main purpose of this paper is to analyse the influence of pressure grouting on ground anchors pull out capacity in fine grained soils, using the finite element method (FEM). The grouting process is simulated by volumetric ...
  • Full-scale testing of Ground Anchors in Neogene Clay 

    Štefaňák, Jan; Miča, Lumír; Chalmovský, Juraj; Leiter, Augustin (Elsevier, 2016-05-26)
    The research campaign aimed on the better understanding of behavior of prestressed soil anchors in neogene clay, including conduction of variety of in-situ (CPT, PMT) and laboratory (Triaxial test, Simple shear test an ...
  • Calibration of an advanced material model for a shotcrete lining 

    Chalmovský, Juraj; Závacký, Martin; Miča, Lumír (IOP Publishing, 2017-09-21)
    Proper choice of a constitutive model is an essential part of any successful application of numerical methods in geotechnical engineering. In most cases, attention is paid to the soil constitutive model. For structural ...
  • Statistical Estimate of Uniaxial Compressive Strength of Rock Based on Shore Hardness 

    Závacký, Martin; Štefaňák, Jan; Horák, Vladislav; Miča, Lumír (Elsevier, 2017-06-20)
    The paper presents the use of advanced stochastic simulation techniques for estimating the strength behavior of rock materials. The Shore Rebound hardness was measured on fifty rock specimens coming from eleven different ...
