  • Research of Effects of Defects on Stability Failures of Semi-monocoque Stiffeners 

    Katrňák, Tomáš; Juračka, Jaroslav; Jebáček, Ivo (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU) Press, 2020-01-29)
    This article presents further results of the research of effects of model defects on the local buckling of compressed stiffeners in nonlinear finite element (FE) analyses. The main outcomes are confirmation of trends for ...
  • Timing Is Important: Unmanned Aircraft vs. Satellite Imagery in Plant Invasion Monitoring 

    Dvořák, Petr (Frontiers Media SA, 2017-05-31)
    The rapid spread of invasive plants makes their management increasingly difficult. Remote sensing offers a means of fast and efficient monitoring, but still the optimal methodologies remain to be defined. The seasonal ...
  • Aerodynamic Load Of An Aircraft With A Highly Elastic Wing 

    Schoř, Pavel (Czech Technical University in Prague, 2017-09-05)
    In this article, a method for calculation of air loads of an aircraft with an elastic wing is presented. The method can predict a redistribution of air loads when the elastic wing deforms. Unlike the traditional Euler or ...
  • Flight Test of Pilot-Aircraft Haptic Feedback System 

    Zikmund, Pavel; Dubnický, Lukáš; Horpatzká, Michaela; Macík, Miroslav; Jebáček, Ivo (MATEC Web of Conferences, 2019-12-17)
    This research is focused on an innovative improvement of pilot-aircraft interaction and is targeted on small aircraft. Haptic feedback is performed by actuators mounted on an aircraft's controls. The purpose of the actuators ...
  • Thermo-vacuum test chamber development for heat switch testing in simulated Martian conditions 

    Mašek, Jakub; Brožek, Petr; Horák, Marek (Brno University of Technology, 2017-05-15)
    In the fall of 2014 the Institute of Aerospace Engineering had been awarded by contract to perform Miniaturized Heat Switch testing. The Miniaturized Heat Switch was the unique technology developed by Italian company Aero ...
  • Failure Index Based Topology Optimization for Multiple Properties 

    Löffelmann, František (Brno University of Technology, 2017-05-15)
    Aim of the presented work is to introduce a method which is being coded. It works in conjunction with an open-source finite element solver CalculiX. One of the topology optimization methods - The Bi-directional Evolutionary ...
