Supervisor provides doctoral student with support and expertise

Supervisors

Supervisors are internationally renowned experts, who provide support and expertise to the doctoral students. The supervisor is selected together with the dissertation topic. Your supervisor playes a vital role in your doctoral study. He will support and assist you. He will also encourage you to publish your research results in peer reviewed journals and to take part in interesting internships and scientific conferences.

prof. Ing. Martin Hartl, Ph.D.

Tribology
Martin developed a method, which allows to measure and visualise very thin lubricant films. It was a breakthrough in the field of elastohydrodynamic lubrication and it improved machine design. This method is used by many distinguished universities and research centres.

doc. Ing. Milan Klapka, Ph.D.

Condition monitoring
Milan helped to develop an energy recovery module of commercial vehicles. Increased efficiency considerably lowered fuel consumption and reduced negative environmental impact.

doc. Ing. Daniel Koutný, Ph.D.

Rapid prototyping and additive technologies
Dan is interested in additive manufacturing of metal parts, which cannot be produced conventionally. He developed and produced satellite antenna console, which represents new generation of components for space applications.

doc. akad. soch. Ladislav Křenek, ArtD.

Industrial design
Ladislav designed burner for hot-air balloons, for which he got Vynikající design (Excellent design) award. The burner is produced and used by one of the biggest producers of hot-air balloons and zeppelins in the world.

doc. Ing. Pavel Mazal, CSc.

Acoustic emission and fatigue failure
Pavel uses methods of nondestructive testing, especially acoustic emission, for online diagnostics of fatigue of cyclically loaded machine elements. He introduced these methods into areas of industry, where they were not used before.

doc. Ing. Martin Vrbka, Ph.D.

Biotribology
Martin developed hip joint simulator. It allowed him to measure thickness of lubricant film in hip joint replacements and thus understand processes of lubrication and wear in artificial hip replacements.
