The aim of the project is to build on the recent research of the team of the authors and to develop an unique additive manufacturing technology enabling the efficient construction of curved horizontal structures by extrusion of cement mortar in horizontal layers, and in layers with fixed andshow more variable inclination. Feasibility will be investigated for structures assembled of prefabricated parts and for on-site construction. In the first phase, structures with different degrees of curvature will be designed to compare the feasibility of different geometries. In the second phase, controlling scripts for robotic production device will be designed for these geometries, which will then be run in a virtual simulator to optimize nozzle movement and avoid collisions and errors. Upon successful virtual debugging, the scripts will run in dry operation on a physical device to verify the fluency of scripts as the nozzle moves physically. Wet testing will then be started to verify the printability of the script when extruding cement mortar. Once optimum scripts have been found to enable the implementation of the proposed geometries in the required quality, physical samples of structures will be printed, which will be the main output of the project alongside the scripts. The specimens will be subjected to strength test once the mortar has reached the standard strength, in order to determine the strength and deformation characteristics of the structures thus realized. The results will be processed into a conclusion and presented to the academic community and in a research report.

Surface Rayleigh waves can occur due to the train runs along the track. If the speed of the train exceeds the critical velocity of the ground in the subsoil of the railway line, the so-called ground boom occurs and during it there is a several-time increase in the intensity of vertical vibrations.show more In extreme cases, this can lead to undesired strokes of the rail grate. In the Czech Republic, the construction of high-speed railway lines at speeds of up to 350 km/h and the modernization of selected sections of railway lines at speeds of 200 km/h are currently being prepared. This issue is therefore becoming topical in the Czech Republic, as the above-mentioned negative phenomena in the ground were already observed at train speeds of around 200 km/h. The proposed project will deal with mathematical modeling of Rayleigh wave propagation and its experimental measurements around a conventional railway line. The project directly follows up on the measurements carried out in 2020 and further develops them. Rayleigh waves will be measured using a set of geophones. The data obtained from the measurements, together with the data already obtained, will serve as a basis for mathematical modeling and estimation of the soil behavior during the operation of trains at higher speeds.

Many of that hydraulic phenomenons are not descriptive using mathematics, words nor pictures. Theshow more issues can be avoided by physical and numerical modelling. Various simulations, tests and so the observations can be easily done since the physical model is built. This can be done by measuring the common attributes (water's depth, flow velocity and direction, hydraulic's loss, water pressure etc.). It is not possible to use basic fluid mechanics when the hydraulically complex flow is investigated, thus the combination of physical and numerical modelling are used (a.k.a. hybrid modelling). The goal of the project is to investigate the energy dissipation and the behaviours of the aerated water flow on the stepped spillway. Furthermore, the river bed deformations and scour hole development. These are one of the basic questions asked in the field of design of hydraulic structures.

Across the world, many projects of futureshow more predictions of the climate changes, and developing of climate scenarios, which reflect the future estimations of the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere depending on social and economic development of society and emissions production, were processed so far. Modelling of the climate changes is accompanied by a serious number of uncertainties depending on the driving emission scenarios, global and regional climate models, methods of downscaling and elimination methods of systematic model errors. Therefore, the output climate scenarios can differ significantly from each other depending on the process of their development whereas the resulting impact of the climate change on the purposes of water management systems of reservoirs depends on the choice of the driving climate scenario. The impact of the climate change on water reservoirs reflect its' regime functions describing the dependence of necessary storage capacity on the required amount of feeding outflow. The case studies suggest the significant decrease of the water resources' capacity and decrease of its' reliability.

Construction is still one of the most risky sectors, involving many factors that are potentially dangerous for workers. Due to the nature of construction activities, the work takes place mostly in the coordination of dozens of workers, mechanisation, and also various construction contractors, allshow more depending on the size of the project. The degree of risk is directly proportional to the number of all these factors. Thus, the work may affect many participants who are at risk of both property and non-property damage. Despite the efforts of security experts and government enforcement of security legislation, there has been no significant reduction in incidents in the construction industry. And like almost all areas of life, workplace safety today is affected by technological developments. And virtual reality seems to be the ideal candidate for technological progress in OSH training.

The project focuses on the solution of a fire-hazardous area in risky places of the building and the effect of the facades on the spread of fire through the exterior. Czech technical standards offer the possibility of solving a fire-hazardous area in more detail by directly calculating the heat fluxshow more density by radiation from a direct structure, but corner areas may behave differently due to changes in boundary conditions from the side. Preliminary results obtained from measurements in the fire laboratory also show this fact. The project aims to detect changes in the size of the fire hazard area in the corner area and at the same time take into account the influence of real structures that can positively and negatively affect this space. Incorrect assessment of the fire-hazardous area in this area can lead to a faster spread of the fire, which leads to a threat to a higher number of people, the amount of material and at the same time worsens the conditions of intervention by fire protection units.

With the influx of more people into the cities comes the problem of ever-rising housing prices and their shortage. The offer of vacant flats is extremely low and is reflected in a sharp rise in prices and at the same time a limited offer of flats for sale and rent. Another factor making housing moreshow more expensive is the financing of housing; its effect on housing prices ceases to mean that the increase in housing construction will reduce the price of an apartment per m2, due to a larger supply on the market. Thus, housing costs are a specific variable that has a diverse impact on urban dwellers with increasing density. In the context of the housing crisis, it is important to deal with the composition of housing construction types.

Real estate valuation is widely used and applied in financial and other markets. The method applied for the property valuation is based on market principles. The residual method is used to value development projects, development sites or existing properties that have development potential and, inshow more many cases, is the only possible way to determine the market value of undeveloped land or property under construction. One of the main inputs used in valuation by using the residual method is development profit. The level of the development profit applied depends on many variables and should take into account the risks remaining at the valuation date and the discount or return that the buyer of the partially completed project would require to bring it to a successful conclusion. The aim of this research is to determine the appropriate amount of development profit used for valuing residential projects. The result of the project will be of practical importance for experts and specialists working in the field of real estate valuation for the valuation of residential projects and land intended for residential construction.

Currently, BIM is talked about mainly in connection with buildings, but in reality the use of BIM can be much wider. Not only buildings but also their surroundings, including technical equipment in the parts of construction, can be included in the models. However, BIM offers more than just digitalshow more visualization in three dimensions. The main idea of BIM's contribution to design is to gather as much information as possible in one place. If the model is prepare well, its use can be achieved within the entire life cycle, and this idea is applicable to the surroundings of large buildings and development projects, which should be managed in the same way as the building itself. When using 3D models already in the project design, it is also possible to achieve financial savings, which is very important nowadays, because the prices of materials are constantly rising and this is associated with an increase in construction and renovation costs. For new buildings, a possible solution leading to a reduction in the cost of building small family houses could be to link 3D models to 3D printing of buildings. In industrial field the brownfield renovations are currently being pushed through more and more is that the "greenfield" construction is a contrary to the sustainable development principles. The fact that brownfields are often located in attractive locations, where vacant land is no longer available in most cases, makes it more attractive for potential investors. The brownfields database itself is one of the areas where the implementation of BIM technologies can improve the process itself. The aim is to analyze the current situation and the possibilities of further development in the use of BIM in connection with the creation and management of building surroundings, redevelopment brownfields and 3D printing of buildings.

The development of cementitious composite materials has made significant progress in recent decades and previously unimaginable properties have been achieved: compressive strength comparable to steel, significant tensile strength, post-cracking ductility when using fibers, and high durability andshow more service life estimated at up to 200 years. This class of materials is known as ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). One of the obstacles to their wider application is the lack of support within design standards. There are still many questions to answer regarding the design of structures made of this material, and some of them are not answered in detail even in the case of typical reinforced concrete structures. It has been a long-term scientific interest of all team members of the presented project to investigate selected problems in this area and to develop reliable design procedures with the potential for their future implementation in standards. The project has two main objectives: obtaining accurate material parameters using modern testing methods and then applying these parameters to create advanced nonlinear numerical models. Obtaining reliable material parameters is a long-discussed topic, especially in the case of tensile strength and fracture energy, which are quite crucial properties of UHPC. The recommended methods for the determination of these parameters are relatively simple, but do not allow the direct determination of important quantities, especially the dependence of stress on the strain of the tested specimen. Therefore, the aim of this project is to perform more sophisticated versions of the test methods and to use modern optical methods such as digital image correlation (DIC) for their measurement and evaluation. Knowledge of the parameters of the selected material is a prerequisite for the implementation of the second part of the project, focused on nonlinear numerical modelling. According to the PhD thesis topics of the individual team members, t

Improving the performance of the recycled materials used in asphalt mixtures and increasing its content in the design of these mixtures, was the main concern of several studies. Yet, the main problem with this recycled bituminous material was the aging of the binder during the life cycle of theshow more pavement under the effect of climatic conditions, freezing cycles, traffic loading and others. Aged bitumen generally loses its properties over time: at the physical level, the penetration is lowering, the softening point is increasing viscosity as well. Rheologic the viscous and elastic components are changed and characteristics like nonrecoverable shear compliance is becoming lower as well as the elastic recovery. In chemical composition the irreversible changes occur. To reactivate the old bitumen, and regenerate its rheological and physical properties, several types of rejuvenating agents can be used. These additives are used to reduce the viscosity of the aged bitumen and to correct its chemical structure by adjusting the asphaltene/maltene ratio. All the above noted actions and factors have allowed a significant increase in the amount of RA (Reclaimed Asphalt) used in the asphalt mixture. In general, the stiffness or dynamic modulus constitutes a significant and important property for the mechanistic understanding of flexible pavement systems. Several known and existing direct testing procedures were used to evaluate the dynamic (complex) modulus. Among these are complex modulus, diametral (resilient or indirect) modulus, and flexural stiffness. In addition to these direct procedures, several extensively used indirect prediction procedures for determining asphalt mixture modulus were used along the years. The foremost notable of these predictive techniques are revised Hirsch dynamic modulus prediction model, revised Witczak dynamic modulus prediction model, using a machine learning method and models, Discrete Element Method (DEM), etc. Each of these techniques has a va

The main goal of this project is the development of a numerical model for concrete pavement. Above all, it is necessary to create a 3D FEM grid generator for the calculation of the thermo-mechanical model for concrete pavement. Due to the small fluctuation of the geometry of the task and its loadingshow more, it is very desirable to automate the task. The Python programming language will be used to create this script. In the future, this automated model can be used to create a new approach to the calculation of stresses for concrete roads in the technical conditions of the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic TP170 - Design of pavements. The second part of the project focuses on the development of a moisture transport model, which is designed to analyze the long-term drying of concrete roads, which is one of the possible mechanisms of their failure. Laboratory measurements will be performed in order to validate the numerical model and determine suitable material parameters for road concrete for this type of task.

Laboratory research of stress and deformation of the high-speed railway structure requires specific loading conditions compared to conventional lines. When laboratory modelling trains operating in the railway line, which poses cyclic force loading, it is essential that hydraulic load presses areshow more able to achieve the prescribed load amplitudes even at frequencies corresponding to speeds of 200 km/h to 360 km/h. The aim of this project is to calculate the load frequency and load values corresponding to the mentioned train speed. An adequate hydraulic press will be sought for the mentioned two parameters within the available laboratory equipment of the CTU in Prague laboratories. The most relevant laboratory equipment will then be experimentally checked on the assembled laboratory model of the high-speed railway line. For the construction of the model, the production of a wooden laboratory box with dimensions that are compatible with the static load test with a circular plate with a diameter of 600 mm used in the conditions of high-speed lines abroad is assumed. This project is suggested to specify the possibilities of laboratory equipment, which is available to PhD students of the Faculty of Civil Engineering CTU in Prague, in terms of research and modelling of the stress of railway line structure when speeds of passing trains are higher than 200 km/h and of the distribution of such loads in the substructure.

Ongoing climate change highlights the long-term structural and building design problems of urban conurbations. Improving stormwater management is one of the possibilities how to reduce negative impact of these changes. Vegetation, with its ability to retain water during rainfall events or to coolshow more itself by transpiration, plays an important role in designing appropriate water management solutions. Successful prediction of vegetation response to water stress, transpiration intensity or root water uptake is crucial not only in hydrology but also in water management in general, with close links to the technical design of individual green or blue infrastructure elements. To quantify the significance of these negative impacts and to design possible measures, it is necessary to develop appropriate modeling tools, applicable in both natural and urban catchments. The proposed research consists of solving a direct problem, i.e., water flow modeling in the soil-plant-atmosphere system using a one-dimensional model that includes the interaction between matrix domain and preferential pathways. Root water uptake takes place in the soil matrix domain and is controlled by the water potential gradient between the soil and the plant xylem. The inverse problem will be solved using the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. A specific feature of the proposed research is the possibility to use sap flow measurements as additional information for inverse modeling. The output will be specific parameterizations of the root water uptake model for conditions of two different forest sites and several green infrastructure elements.

Commercial microwave links are very well equipped in this area. Commercial microwave linksshow more are commonly used in telecommunication networks, resulting in high coverage densities, especially in urbanized areas. The precipitation information is measured indirectly, along the path of the link, by deriving from the measured attenuation of the microwave signal. Quantitative precipitation estimates using microwave links are loaded down by uncertainty, which will be examined in more detail in this project using information theory methods. There will be presented information gains of individual inputs for precipitation estimates, the dependence of uncertainty reduction on the size of the data set, and also whether the use of short microwave links for estimating the wet antenna effect for other nearby but longer links is advantageous from an information-theory point of view.

Gas radon is the primary source of ionising radiation for humans and the second cause of lung cancer, just after smoking. Since radon mainly penetrates a building through cracks and fractures at the foundation level, it is necessary to focus on that area. The problem of high indoor radonshow more concentrations is mainly present in countries where the heating indoors is privileged since there is a high-temperature difference between outdoors and indoors in winter. However, radon control technologies represent operational and embodied environmental impacts; the last has been more or less ignored so far. Still, as buildings are becoming energy-efficient and should ensure a high level of indoor comfort, these solutions' environmental impacts are recognised as essential and shall be methodically investigated. Thus, a comparative analysis of different radon control technologies' impacts (renewable and non-renewable embodied energy and environmental parameters) will be performed. The project's main focus is to assess the contribution of embodied impacts of radon control technologies (both active and passive). The embodied impacts will be calculated for the A1-A3 LCA stages and compared against each other in relation to one square meter and the radon resistance. The project's main benefits will be finding the contributions to the environment of the radon control technologies aimed at understanding which solutions would be more environmental-friendly in protecting the indoor environment of buildings against radon.

Urbanism has undergone a major rebirth in the last few decades. From the negative perception, associated especially with the rejection of regulations set in spatial planning, its main importance quickly comes to the fore - the creation of a quality environment in which to live fully. As a field ofshow more study, urbanism faces many new challenges related to the development of views on the concept of new parts of settlements, residential units or public spaces, but also to societal issues such as social, economic and, last but not least, climate change. Examples include insufficient facilities in small towns, which do not meet the needs of the current public and its starting points, as well as the issue of floodplains in settlements and related answers that would solve this topic. From many sources it can be said that the topic of floods will not disappear, floods will continue to affect areas, so it is necessary to provide solutions both for areas already urbanized, but also for those that are still waiting to be built. These are large areas which, as one of the few, have withstood the pressure of developers for many years, but are no longer able to withstand the overall demand for new housing. Another big topic is transport - whether it is a question of traffic calming or the topic of public transport. Public transport is also gaining prominence among cities, especially through the viewpoint of environmental burdens. However, historical transport hubs, which should be public transport stops in some cases, are not sufficient for this role, especially with their capacity, absence of accessibility, etc. However, it is necessary to realize that the topic of the surrounding landscape in which we live is very closely related to the topic of urbanism. In particular, cultural and historical landscapes, which have evolved hand in hand with the inhabitants who inhabited it for centuries, are therefore, together with the settlements built in it, part of our history.

Dissipation of kinetic energy generated on the slipways is necessary in order to provide stability of the slipway structure and to limit erosion of the downstream bottom and banks. In the case of reservoir ramps, it is also about ensuring the safety of the reservoir and its structures. There areshow more several ways in which the kinetic energy of water can be dissipated on slipways. Their application is mainly influenced by the hydrology of the area, topography, geology, type of waterworks, economic aspects and frequency of use. Last but not least, the environmental impact. The basic classification can be made into ramps with artificial dissipators and block ramps. Ramps can also be divided in terms of their function into ramps under the safety spillways of waterworks, ramps as river channel stabilisation elements and ramps as fish passages. While a ramps with artificial dissipators are more suitable for slides under safety spillways, block ramps are preferred as river bed stabilisation elements and fish passes. Increasingly, natural slides with a solid bottom are being used, combining naturalness and increased durability. For a proper design it is necessary to determine the degree of diddipation of kinetic energy, which depends mainly on the macro roughness of the ramp. Therefore, the size and position of the individual dissipating elements must be optimised for the most effective dissipation of kinetic energy. Optimisation must be done while preserving ramp stability and naturalness. The proposed project, with its topic of kinetic energy dissipation on ramps, which is also the topic of the proposer's PhD thesis, is a continuation and further development of the SGS project Kinetic Energy Dissipation on Boulder Ramps, in which the proposer was a team member.

Bentonite is used as a sealing material in a wide range of scientific areas (the sealing of cesspools, landfill sites, dams, the sealing of garden ponds, etc.). The Czech deep geological repository for radioactive waste design concept assumes the use of bentonite as the sealing barrier materialshow more between the container and the disposal well (the so-called buffer), and as the sealing material for the access corridors (the backfill). Since the bentonite (buffer) will be exposed to high temperatures over a long period of time in the deep geological repository, intensive research is being conducted aimed at verifying the sealing properties of bentonite under long-term thermal loading conditions. A further issue being considered by scientists involved in the research of the deep underground disposal of radioactive waste concerns the effect of gases on the sealing ability of the bentonite. The gases that will be generated in the repository may lead to the mechanical disruption of the bentonite sealing layer (a so-called breakthrough event).

The safety management process must be applied at all stagesshow more of the life of the technical installations, i.e. also during the reconstruction process. The aim of any reconstruction is that the reconstruction process does not cause unacceptable damage and losses, so as not to create new risks and at least to maintain the current level of safety of the work. Therefore, during reconstruction it is necessary to rely on the applicable standards and good engineering practice, but also to monitor and manage priority risks in order to achieve this objective. Based on current knowledge and recommendations of standards, e.g. ISO 31 000, ISO 31 010, ISO 9000, etc., we want to propose a procedure for linking standards and risk management results in the process of reconstruction of critical element (metro station) of critical transport infrastructure. Since the subject norms and standards do not indicate the procedures for how to carry out the link, we will address the problem in question on a practical example, considering both, the process safety and the integral (overall safety). To ensure safety, we will create a tool "Risk management plan for the reconstruction of an element critical Infrastructure".

Their use in the Czech Republic is currently largely limited to reclamations in the vicinity of power plantsshow more, most often in the form of agglomerated, deposited or landfill ash, which is a mixture of several combustion products (CCP's), with difficult or impossible separation of individual components. The application of CCP's in advanced products is in many cases hindered by some of their chemical, physical and mechanical parameters, which are given by the way they are created and the production technology during combustion. The integration of existing and stored CCP's in more complex products (especially construction products) is low. The market in the Czech Republic and in Europe is proving to be experiencing a critical shortage of secondary materials for construction production, which has been reflected in rising prices. CCP's have a significant positive effect in the circular economy on reducing the total price of the resulting construction works and products, improving some technical parameters of building materials and significantly reducing the energy intensity of primary raw materials - especially cement and anhydrite and subsequent construction products and structures (concrete, earthworks structures, etc.). A significant side effect is the reduction of CO2 and NOx emissions when replacing primary raw materials, as emissions from the production of combustion by-products are included in the electricity product. Only by replacing 1 ton of cement by fly ash, you can save approx. 0.75 tons of CO2 emissions, simply because all CO2 emissions from the production of fly ash are balanced within the electricity product.

Crystalline coating is progressive and effective solution for the protection of building structures against water and moisture in the field of building structures and their repairs. Boundary conditions are diverse in the design of water protection measures and wrong approach in design generatesshow more risks in the form of increased reconstruction costs and another environmental burden because of construction waste disposal. This danger is contrary to the concept of sustainability and durability of buildings. The aim of the project is the systematic mapping of the interaction of the crystalline coating with selected building structures depending on various boundary conditions. The output of this project will complement the current knowledge of the use of crystalline materials - especially coatings - on selected building structures, whose effect has not yet been sufficiently desrcribed (current publications (WOS, Scopus) deal almost exclusively with crystalline admixtures in concrete and not with crystalline coatings). The important part of the project will be to investigate whether the crystalline coating does not cause a chemical reaction of structural changes that would negatively affect the strenght and cohesion of the material. It will be possible to partially predict behavior and mutual interaction between other selected building materials because of the numerical analysis of selected laboratory models and comparison of results with real laboratory outputs and in-situ measurements.

Proposed research project aims at the assessment and development of progressive diagnostics and strengthening methods for existing engineering structures and bridges. Main motivation for this research topic is an increasing number of damaged structures that deteriorated the natural way (of old age)show more or due to inappropriate structural design. The focus is on steel bridges, that have been built in Czech republic in significant numbers at the turn of 19th and 20th century, which means their projected design life is about to expire (or it has already expired). Also, the focus is on the steel transmission towers, that are affected by old age deterioration and by progressive change in climate loadings. Strengths and weaknesses of using state of the art diagnostics and measurement methods (radar interferometry, magnetic memory method (MMM), digital image correlation (DIC), modal analysis etc.) for determining structural condition of damaged structures are studied in the first part of this project. The other part aims at finding the optimal possibilities of strengthening critical load bearing members or details. In this regard, it is planned to investigate the possible utilization of shape memory alloys (SMA), ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) or advanced polymer-based railway track fastening technologies to improve the behavior of bridgedecks.

Fishponds are important landscape elements with specific ecosystem characterised by high biodiversity. The Czech Republic is a region abundant in ponds and a significant number of the total number can be described as historic ponds, which are 500 years old or more. Fishpond dams are engineeringshow more structures which require regular inspection and maintenance. A common problem, not only in historic ponds, is increased seepage through the dam body. Previous research has developed a upstream slope bentonite seal layer and it´s effectiveness after application has been experimentally tested. Further research is focused on detailed study of the principle of seepage reduction by the developed method, focusing on the interaction of the bentonite seal layer with the dam body after a certain time in service. This interaction will be determined by the distribution of bentonite particles in the dam body through laboratory analysis of samples taken from the physical model and experimental analysis of flow characteristics using physical and chemical methods.

The quality and condition of water management significantly affects the development and decline of civilizations. Not only in connection with climate change, there are and will be ever-increasing demands on the functionality of water supply systems and drainage systems, which must be adapted to theshow more expected extreme events related to drought and floods, which can be expected more frequently than before. At the same time, the lack of water resources can become a critical factor in meeting the needs of our, but especially future generations. From this point of view, water resources management is one of the most important challenges today. At the same time, it is necessary to reduce the energy demands of municipal water management systems in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to introduce the principles of circular economy as much as possible. The proposed project will design the methodological procedure for a holistic approach to the analysis of balances in the water management of municipalities, especially in terms of water and energy balance. Recommendations, resp. the methodology will be verified in the pilot basin. At the same time, a proposal for a risk analysis of blue-green infrastructure systems will be prepared, which is becoming an essential part of drainage systems in urban areas as well as mitigation and adaptation measures in connection with climate change. The outputs of the project can be the basis for the adjustment of legislative requirements or for the updating of local water management register with the use of locally competent state administration and self-governments.

Proto jsou dílčími tématy konference územní a krajinné plánování, urbanistické infrastruktury (dopravní, technická, sociální, ekonomická i kulturní), brownfieldy a jejich revitalizace, suburbanizace, ochrana přírody a krajiny, památková péče, cestovní ruch, geografické informační systémy a problematika mapových děl. Vzájemná výměna poznatků z těchto značně provázaných oborů přispívá k pochopení komplexity prostředí, kde žijeme a které svojí činností aktivně utváříme. Navazující 16. ročník přispěje k tradici konference a pomůže odborníkům i širší veřejnosti vyměnit si poznatky z těchto oborů, které jsou ve vzájemné vazbě, a přispěje k pochopení širokého prostředí, ve kterém žijeme a které svou činností aktivně utváříme. Konference a její sborník je určena pro publikování výsledků vědeckého výzkumu, který probíhá v rámci vysokých škol a dalších institucí, pro představení práce studentů doktorského studia, k výměně zkušeností a poznatků mezi akademickou sférou, odbornou praxí a státní správou, a k hledání mostů mezi zmíněnými obory.

Konferenceshow more shrne výsledky výzkumu doktorského studijního programu PD a oboru TURPD, které se aktuálně věnují záchraně ohrožených objektů našeho průmyslového dědictví formou nového využití - konverzí pro soudobé, převážně nevýrobní funkce. Významná část průmyslového dědictví byla již zmapovaná, jedná se především o stavby z 1. a 2. období industrializace (přibližně dvě stě let - 1750 - 1950), dnes nazývané Průmyslová revoluce 1-0 a 2-0. Další osud stavebního fondu z tohoto významného období je ale často velmi nejistý a závislý na mnoha více-méně náhodných okolnostech. Pro jejich záchranu především formou nové využití, která má smysl nejen pro uchování historických stop, ale má významný přesah i do ekologie a ochrany životního prostředí, nejsou u nás stanovena žádná pravidly, ani ověřené postupy, které by mohli potencionální vlastníci a investoři pro přípravu konverzí průmyslového dědictví použít. Připravovaná konference by měla alespoň z části tento deficit vyplnit a diskuzi o této teoreticky málo probádané architektonické oblasti nastartovat. Konference shromáždí příspěvky našich doktorandů i přizvaných odborníků z akademického prostředí, které nastíní aktuální možnosti záchrany industriálních objektů jak pomocí adaptací pro nové funkce, tak i jinými, teoreticky zkoumanými cestami.

Mould growth on wood is often a precursor of further decay. Current predictive mould growth models used in building science are based on laboratory experiments, in which the material sample is in hygrothermal equilibrium with ambient air. However, such condition is rarely satisfied in real lifeshow more building structures and thus these models often fail. The main objective of this project is to deepen the understanding of fungal growth on wood exposed to dynamic boundary conditions.

The objective of this project is development of new types of energy dissipators for spillways for regular dams and canal-scale weirs which will allow for reduction in size or even total elimination of stilling basins. The current experiments conducted in our laboratory showed that the kinetic energyshow more at the baffled chute can be reduced by about 60 % with optimally arranged natural stones. It is expected that further optimization of shape and roughness of concrete energy dissipators will allow even better kinetic energy dissipation. The result then will be not only a set of upgraded energy dissipators with more efficient shapes but also enhanced safety of spillways by reduction of erosion at the base of the chute, which means enhanced durability of spillways. Since the energy dissipators will be of complex shapes, it will be necessary to develop flexible forms, which in turn will accelerate the process of verification of their efficiency in the physical models by much rapid production of concrete blocks with modified shapes and roughness.

It is commonly considered that the dispersion and orientation of fibres in the cementitious matrix is uniform and isotropic nevertheless this uniformity and isotropy can be affected by external influences (e.g. shape and size of the mould). One of the possible ways how to change the dispersion and orientation of steel fibres is the electromagnetic field. This project is therefore focused on the investigation of the behaviour of steel fibres in cementitious matrix in electromagnetic field and the effect of the electromagnetic field on the uniformity and isotropic orientation of the fibres. The research work is focused on detailed description of the way of aligning of fibres by electromagnetic field. The strength and frequency of the electromagnetic field will be also investigated to achieve the best fibres arrangement in the directions of principal stresses.

If well designed, interlayers can dissipate part of the impact energy, hold the glass fragments together, andshow more prevent penetration of pressure waves and bodies through building envelopes. However, improving designs calls for a reliable description of the glass behavior. To this end, we aim to numerically and experimentally analyze the effect of the blast and ballistic impact, their successive or combined actions, on multilayer laminated glass, thereby deepening the current knowledge. The overarching objective is to implement, validate, and verify a phase-field damage model and investigate its suitability to predict the post-breakage behavior of the laminated glass under blast loads. Complementary to this, we will develop an innovative experimental methodology for laminated glass subjected to blast with a simple interpretation of results that allows for a reliable validation of numerical models.

Blue-green infrastructure is becoming an integrated part of cities and helps to mitigate the environmental impacts of urbanization. Constructed soils along with plants are key components of blue-green infrastructure such as green roofs and infiltration swales. The aim of the project is to elucidateshow more hydraulic functioning of multi-layered soils by invasive and noninvasive experimental methods. Constructed soil systems comprising two or more layers of media having contrasting properties may provide better performance in terms of evapotranspiration loss, infiltration capacity, contaminant removal and support for plants, than do single-layer soils. At the same time, the interfaces between layers can induce effects like capillary barrier, finger flow and air entrapment, that are well understood as individual phenomena in natural soils but have not been studied in the specific case of constructed soils yet. Recently developed approaches to modeling fluxes of water and solutes in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum in natural settings will be extended to multi-layered constructed soils.

Textile reinforced concrete (TRC) is a silicate composite material in which reinforcement consists of one or multiple mesh structured layers manufactured from inorganic fibres. Due to the use of a noncorrosive reinforcement, additional cover requirements can be limited, reducing the amount of cement and resulting in a higher sustainable potential. Growing research has been directed towards the use of more sustainable alternative materials. Natural fibres are renewable, widespread and accessible to both developing and developed countries, and can be recycled and biodegraded. Moreover, some plant fibres have high specific mechanical properties.

Mechanical metamaterials currently represent the most convincing example of the bottom-up paradigm in designing engineering materials, in which unprecedented macroscopic performance emerges from the collective response of carefully architectured microstructures, rather than properties of individualshow more constituents. The major bottleneck in metamaterials featuring reversible pattern formation, which we target in this project, is microstructure periodicity intrinsic to most designs. While instrumental in triggering instability-driven patterns, uniform microstructures preclude further performance gains under non-uniform excitations. The [acronym] project goes beyond periodicity by exploring the framework of nonperiodic tilings, in which material microstructures arise from a compatible assembly of handful jigsaw puzzle-like material modules. Successful application of this approach requires (i) new generalized continuum theories for emergent behavior of metamaterials with non-uniform microstructures, (ii) novel algorithms for the simultaneous design of tiles and their assemblies to achieve optimum performance, and (iii) validation studies performed on optimized assemblies. Having manufacturability of the resulting design in mind, we will investigate in parallel (iv) mechanisms for targeted self-assembly based on passive inter-tiles interactions.

Following decades of RD&D in support of the safe management and disposal of radioactive waste, and building on the preparatory work of the recent EC JOPRAD project, a European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management (EURAD) is now proposed to coordinate activities on agreed priorities ofshow more common interest between European Waste Management Organisations (WMOs), Technical Support Organisations (TSOs) and Research Entities (REs). Such Joint Programming will complement National RD&D Programmes, by jointly establishing and carrying out activities jointly where there is added value at the European level. It is the logical next step in deepening collaboration between European actors in the field of radioactive waste management (RWM). It builds on existing and emerging networks of European actors (IGD-TP, SITEX and REs network), preceding coordination and support actions (in particular, SecIGD2, SITEX-II project and JOPRAD). The Joint Programme will generate and manage knowledge to support EU Member States with their implementation of the Directive 2011/70/Euratom (Waste Directive), taking into account the different magnitudes and stages of advancement of Member State National Programmes. This will encompass: • Supporting Member-States in developing and implementing their national RD&D programmes for the safe long-term management of their full range of different types of radioactive waste through participation in the RWM Joint Programme; in particular: • Consolidating existing knowledge for the safe start of operation of the first geological disposal facilities for spent fuel, highlevel waste, and other long-lived radioactive waste, and supporting optimization linked with the stepwise implementation of geological disposal; and • Enhancing knowledge management and transfer between organisations, Member-States and generations.

AGREEWATER aims to improve knowledge and tools to increase adoption of natural water retention measures (NWRMs) in agricultural landscapes for sustainable production, climate resilience and healthy environment. Specifically, we will improve knowledge on the potential for adoption of NWRMs, and theshow more functioning of small agricultural catchments with respect to hydrology, nutrient flows and agricultural management. This knowledge will include tools to evaluate the cost-benefit of NWRMs, and comprehensive analysis on effects on water quantity and quality, the environment and society. AGREEWATER will take a multi-actor approach to assess opportunities across over 30 research locations and 10 pilot catchments in 10 EU countries covering the Boreal, Continental and Pannonian biogeographic regions. We will develop new comprehensive understanding on the benefits and opportunities and realistic scope for cost-efficient investments across the regions to inform local farmers and extension, as well as EU policy actors. AGREEWATER will achieve this through several strategic project activities. 1) We will study the potential for the implementation of NWRMs in a network of agricultural research catchments across the EU to inform on scalability. 2) We will use an inclusive approach of multi-actor engagements, including farmers, for co-learning in pilot catchments, to share and develop new knowledge on NWRMs applicability, efficiency and benefits. 3) We will produce open access (public goods) in a catalogue of NWRMs, adapt decision support tools, and produce guidelines on how to implement NWRMs at the farm/small catchment scale. 4) We will strengthen existing and build new linkages and collaborations at the EU level, and among national actors to achieve informed decision and adoption of NWRMs for sustainable water resources and agricultural production. AGREEWATER will contribute to the AGENDA 2030 SDG goals, and further to EU Water Directive and Common Agricultural Policy.

Aimed to lead the way in improving soil health across EU, China and New Zealand, it rests on two pillars: 1) a network of 42 cooperating stakeholder organisations for defining, implementing and upscaling soil restoring strategies in multiple farms; b) a network of 66 long-term experiments and monitored farms in the participating countries. From them, TUdi will identify soil degradation situations, proven strategies for restoring soil health, and barriers and possibilities for its adoption at farm level, including gender dimensions. This bottom-up approach will develop a set of digital tools, compatible with platforms for optimizing CAP implementation in Europe, to predict the impact of these strategies on nutrient and water balance, yield, cost-benefit and farm operations. They will guide farmers in implementing strategies to restore soil health by overcoming barriers for adoption, with rigorous cost-benefit analyses central to farmer appraisal. Solutions will be scaled up over a large number of farms through partners engaged in the cooperators network, including training of stakeholders, developing technical materials and elaborating policy briefs. It will be complemented by communicating project challenges and results to society, raising awareness of the relevance of healthy soils for sustainable development. Providing a blueprint for development and dissemination of soil restoring strategies at large scale, it will contribute to key initiatives like the EU and China Research Agenda for Agriculture and EU Mission on Soil Heath and Food.

One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century is satisfying our energy needs. Energy is becoming ever more expensive and burning of fossil fuels accelerates global warming. Increased utilisation of renewable energy is the best solution to save fossil energy resources, reduce or avoid emissionshow more of CO2 and slow down climate change. Close beneath our feet is a hidden source of energy that has remained virtually unnoticed in the past: domestic and municipal sewage. Generally its temperature is in a range between 10 °C and 20 °C all year round. For this reason sewage is an excellent heat source for effective and economical operation of heat pumps. The recovered heat can also be fed into existing or planned local heat distribution networks. Utilizing wastewater as an energy source is not a completely new idea, however until now it has been often underestimated due to financial, infrastructural, organizational, regulatory, biological, and informational barriers. The LIAISON project brings together thirteen project partners from relevant sectors from Austria, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia, and Romania in order to facilitate cooperation and know-how transfer for the diversification of energy sources and the promotion of wastewater utilization thus contributing to the diversification and security of energy supply in the Danube Region.  Increased information sharing and capacity building 1) among project partners and 2) with key stakeholders through documented learning interactions in the project will support end users’ decisions in the selection of sustainable and feasible scenarios for wastewater utilization in the district heating and energy production. Project outputs: Transnational Network for Wastewater Utilization, Online Calculation and Dimensioning Tool, User-friendly Regulatory Roadmap, policy recommendations for simplification of the permitting requirements, and training materials.

The project aim is the development and experimental application of the complex and progressive rehabilitation methodology determined for the restoration and conservation of historical military reinforced concrete fortresses from the 1930s. The proposed renovation solution is based on the applicationshow more of the modern cement based crystalline materials in combination with the advanced structural adjustments, which allow aesthetically sensitive renovation and highly durable conservation of the structures of nearly all types of military fortress objects built during 1930s in the Czechoslovak Republic. The main aim of the rehabilitation methodology is the systematic provision of the maximal durability of these structures, predominantly due to water ingress related failures, while preserving original and historical authenticity. The pilot experimental application of the developed rehabilitation methodology will be carried out, after the laboratory studies and performed experimental research, on the selected military object of heavy fortress in Orlicke Hory, which was built in 1937-38. These activities will be conducted is close cooperation with Military history club Prague. The significant advantage of the proposer is the scientific involvement during the fortress construction in 1930s and with that being related number of sources deposited in archives of CTU. Based on the obtained experiences, the project solution will result in the preparation of the systematic rehabilitation and conservation techniques for the concrete fortress objects from 1930s.

Dnešní stav technickéshow more infrastruktury na Labsko-vltavské vodní cestě je rozhodující měrou výsledkem rozsáhlých úprav z první poloviny 20. století a byl umožněn vydáním říšského zákona z roku 1869. V první fázi byla vybudována zdymadla na dolní Vltavě z Prahy do Mělníka a na dolním Labi z Mělníka do Ústí nad Labem. Většina zdymadel na středním Labi byla vybudována mezi I. a II. světovou válkou. Na Labsko-vltavské vodní cestě je dnes celkem přes 30 zdymadel a svým charakterem se většina z nich řadí do technického a industriálního dědictví. Cíle projektu jsou následující: Cíl č. 1 – Dokumentace technického kulturního dědictví na Labsko-vltavské vodní cestě Objekty zdymadel na Labsko-vltavské vodní cestě představují rozsáhlé a unikátní technické dědictví, které stále slouží svému účelu. Zdymadla jsou tvořena typicky jezovou konstrukcí, plavební komorou a vodní elektrárnou. Cílem projektu je dokumentace existujícího technického dědictví v úrovni jednotlivých zdymadel a jejich stavebních a technologických prvků. Dále bude pozornost zaměřena na identifikaci ohrožených objektů na Labsko-vltavské vodní cestě, které funkčně nebo kapacitně přestávají vyhovovat současným požadavkům a kde bude v budoucnu pravděpodobně potřebné přistupovat k citlivým modernizacím v kontextu jejich kulturně historické hodnoty.

Cultural heritage, 2.1 Research and its application - cultural heritage and territories with historical values, namely point b) research and development of tools for the identification, documentation and registration of immovable and movable cultural heritage using new technologies that will enhance the economic integration of the application of cultural heritage in society and increase active participation in the development of national identity as part of the European cultural environment). The main objective of the project is considered processing of large volumes of archival materials (historic documents, maps, plans, photographs) and within their combination and digitization creating a comprehensive information system (2D and 3D) probably best known and most popular Czech river Vltava (specifically the section from the source of the river to its confluence with Berounka river). This system will allow maintaining and documenting a wealth of information about the history of the Vltava river, including immovable and movable cultural heritage using new technologies (eg. extinct settlements, important buildings, socio-cultural activities, historical floods). In addition to the river itself, another goal of the project is to document transformation and exploitation of the cultural landscape around the river in connection with technological interventions (constructions of dams above all) and functional changes of the river (productive, traffic, recerational) in the context of societal changes . Project would thus act as a transfer of historical science into education through modern cartographic methods.

The main aim of the presented document is to make the identification, documentation, and assessment of value of historical stone processing traces at historical sights easier. For such purpose it will use a special topographic map of surfaces of stone features at the researched area. The map willshow more focus on details of processing and identification of the instruments used at chosen objects of the Prague conservation zone. It will be used as an instrument/aid for restorers and also for conservation zone staff. A part of the map will be metadata that will provide not only information about the topographic surface of the stones but also basic description of the rock material. From this entry will follow on a specialized public database, which will be a sample book of stonemason instruments and their traces. This newly created “sample book” will make the work of the heritage workers and restorers easier when reconstructing historical sights. Another aim of this project is to improve the general knowledge about the work of stonemasons in the past. For such purpose there will be organised an exhibition which will present medieval ironworks and show many types of stonemason instruments and their traces. The results of our researches will also be presented. An integral part is also publication of the exhibition catalogue. To avoid damage of the historical stone processing traces in the process of renovations, there will be created suitable methodology on the basis of experimental check-up of their influence. For such purposes rock samples discarded by depositories will be used. The surface of the rocks will be measured in detail before and after restorers' intervention and thoroughly documented. Thus it will be possible to assess the rate of damage of a concrete renovating procedure. Another part of the project will also be assessment of the use of hyperspectral data and their outputs in comparison with outputs of convention methods used for study of rock-surface degradation.

Hlavním cílem předkládaného projektu je návrh optimalizovaného cementového kompozitu, který bude vhodný pro 3D modelování a to jak za pomoci robotické ruky, tak pro 3D tisk. Robotické modelování samo o sobě, je představa technologie, kdy naprogramovaný robot pomocí jednoduchých sochařských technik ashow more nástrojů upravuje a tvaruje povrch betonu do požadovaných plastických tvarů od jednoduchých reliéfů až po tvary, které využívají světla pro vytváření pomyslných objemů. Tato technika, zejména ornamentálního modelování, by představovala architektonickou nefigurativnost jako přímou součást architektury, která by se dala s výhodou využít při vytváření designových velkoplošných děl složených z jednotlivých obkladových prvků, kdy je každá tato součást jedinečná. Automaticky by byl do každého prvku vytvořen daný originální reliéf a nebylo by tak třeba vytvářet pro každou část nebo prvek samostatnou formu, která bude využita pouze jednou, což by bylo u velkoplošných děl v konečném výsledku značně neefektivní a nákladné. Cílem projektu je tedy návrh složení cementového kompozitu, který by si během požadované doby držel mechanické vlastnosti. Tato doba by byla dle vstupních požadavků za pomoci různých dávek přísad a příměsí řiditelná v řádu minut až hodin. Hlavním požadavkem na navrhovanou směs je v tomto období zejména dostatečná plasticita a stálost a zachování vymodelovaného tvaru. Představa využití této techniky je např. pro výrobu obkladový desek či dlaždic, které by se daly s úspěchem využít na fasády objektů, opěrných stěn, komínů nebo výdechů z tunelů. Takto vytvořené obkladové desky budou plnit funkci zejména estetickou, je zde však možnost pomocí vhodné úpravy vyvinuté směsi, pokrýt i další přidané funkční hodnoty jako např. zvýšenou požární odolnost či zvýšenou odolnost vůči dynamickému nárazu.

Fires are a natural phenomenon but their main cause is human activity. Anthropogenic factors influencing fire occurrence can be socio-economic, socio-environmental, and land use. There is a lack of data on post-fire contaminants and long-term effects of fire. Fires always have an impact on theshow more environment. Limitation of using classical analyses of soils is that the compounds present in trace amounts remain undetected and their biological effects remain underestimated. There is a need to search for new, adequate remediation/restoration technologies in this area. The conducted research will allow determination of the impact of fire on the environment and further direction of action towards restoration (including phytoremediation) of the area. The optimal method will be proposed with the indication of additives (compost and food waste compost) supporting mobilization and/or immobilization of pollutants, moisture retention in the soil as well as relevant plant species that will support phytoremediation and restoration processes. Project will be connected to the COST Action CA18135, COST Association Fire in the Earth System: Science & Society (FIRElinks) in particular to the W3 (Fire effects on soils). The research team will collaborate with WG4 (Fire effects on water, sediment and contaminated transport) on upscaling the processes from the point and plot scale. The novelty will lie in the connection of soil processes to fire dynamics WG1 (Fire dynamics and prevention) and vegetation interactions with fire and soil WG2 (Fire effect on Plants and Fauna).

Využívání odpadních produktů představuje důležitý krok směrem k trvalé udržitelnosti a snížení ekologické zátěže spojené s lidskou činností. Pneumatiky využívané automobily představují po konci jejich využití v dopravním průmyslu podstatnou zátěž a možnosti jejich dalšího využití jsou stále poměrněshow more omezené. Hlavním důvodem je, že zpracování těchto odpadních produktů skládajících se zejména z pryže, ocelových drátků a textilu, které nejsou biologicky rozložitelné a představují tak značnou ekologickou zátěž, je relativně obtížné. V celosvětovém měřítku se nejčastěji použité pneumatiky skládkují, což je však také častou příčinou požárů. V České republice podléhají pneumatiky zákonu č. 185/2001 Sb. § 38 o odpadech a zpětném odběru výrobků. Tento odpad se tedy nesmí ukládat na skládky, pouze ve specifických případech podle vyhlášky č. 294/2005 Sb. V roce 2017 bylo zpětným odběrem posbíráno okolo 71 % objemu všech pneumatik, což představuje zpracování vice než 36 tisíc tun pneumatik. Tyto pneumatiky jsou v současné době buď skladovány speciálním způsobem anebo spalovány zejména v cementárnách. Mezi alternativní způsoby se řadí jejich využívání při výrobě asfaltu nebo případně jako plnivo v cementových kompozitech.

Hydraulic structures represent key elements of water infrastructure and their performance has crucial influence on several sectors of critical infrastructure. The performance includes mainly water supply for citizens and industry, important power sources with exceptional regulatory capabilities andshow more river navigation. While existing codes and legislation are well applicable in case of natural hazards, for accidental situations caused by humans, definite guidelines do not exist either for design stage of the hydraulic structure or for its operation. In case of important hydraulic structures it is also necessary do discriminate between the vulnerability of the purpose fulfilment, usually water or power supply, and vulnerability of the hydraulic structure itself as its failure causes significant consequences even outside the scope of critical infrastructure (causalities and economical damage). The governing idea of this project is to provide tools for impartial evaluation of vulnerability of dams and reservoirs with respect to anthropogenic hazards together with the set of measures for evaluation of potential failures and possible preventive risk mitigation measures.

Rekreační využití vodních ploch Vltavské kaskády lze zaznamenat již od jejich vzniku. V současné době lze mezi rekreační využití zařadit plavbu, rybolov, chatařství nebo např. zážitkové rekreace. Vodohospodářské funkce vodních nádrží jsou pravidelně podrobovány jejich hodnocení v rámci výzkumných ishow more strategických aktivit. Hodnocení ekonomického potenciálu rekreačního využití a predikce jeho vývoje však nebyla dosud zpracována. Přesto, že střední Evropa nepatří z hlediska dopadů klimatické změny k nejvíce zasaženým oblastem, lze i zde očekávat zvyšování rizik spojených s vysokými teplotami, snižováním letních srážek a suchem, extrémními srážkami a přívalovými povodněmi (EEA, 2017). Dle projekcí klimatických modelů se roční množství srážek má spíše mírně zvyšovat; pak nemusí být dopady na celkový odtok významné, což potvrzují i studie projekcí změn hydrologické bilance (Hanel a kol., 2012). Rekreační využití vodních ploch je přímo závislé na základních charakteristikách těchto ploch, a to na co možná nejvíce stabilní úrovni hladiny v rekreačním období, resp. na zajištění nanejvýš pozvolného poklesu. Korelace mezi predikovanými scénáři klimatické změny a jejich dopadu na ekonomické aspekty rekreačních zařízení nebyla dosud vytvořena.

REDUCING MATERIAL DEMANDS AND ENHANCING STRUCTURAL CAPACITY OF MULTI-SPIRAL REINFORCED CONCRETE COLUMNS - ADVANCED SIMULATION AND EXPERIMENTAL VALIDATION

Code

Similarly to conventional circular columns with reinforcement by a single spiral, the concept of multi-spiral reinforcement developed in Taiwan offers superior structural performance with almost arbitrary shape of the cross-section. Compared to the conventional reinforcement layout with stirrups, ashow more similar performance can be obtained at considerably lower cost, which is due to both automation of the process and more efficient use of materials. Yet, the optimum layout of transverse reinforcement remains unknown and current practice relies on time demanding and costly experiments. Additionally, the current building codes do not recognize the enhanced structural performance originating from the confinement which in turn leads to over-designing. The reason for this is the presence of formulae developed for the case of a circular column with a single spiral. A pilot numerical study has demonstrated that even at constant reinforcement ratio the strength and ductility of the columns can be further optimized thus leading to even more efficient design. Recently, a new promising concept incorporating pre-stressing steel with increased yield strength, referred to as Advanced multi-spiral reinforcement layout, has been proposed. The aim of the project is to: 1) investigate the Advanced multi-spiral layout by combination of nonlinear finite element simulations and the experiments, 2) develop rules for efficient design with multi-spiral reinforcement identified by means of multi-objective optimization, and 3) propose code-like formulae which should provide a basis for the design of columns with multi-spiral reinforcement.
