Laboratories

Dynamics Laboratory

Head of laboratory: Ing. Lubomír Houfek, Ph.D.

The laboratory of dynamics, noise and vibrations is equipped with Bruel&Kjaer PULSE analyser with a wide range of options in vibro-diagnostics, noise measurement and modal properties of machine systems. For educational and research purposes, the laboratory has an experimental Rotor Kit RK-4 stand (it allows for physical simulation of various operation modes of high-speed rotor systems).

Laboratory of Experimental Mechanics and Laboratory of Experimental Strength of Materials

Head of laboratory: Ing. Lubomír Houfek, Ph.D.

The laboratory is equipped with strain gauges, power, pressure and momentum sensors, central measuring stations and HBM software. In particular, there are the following devices: UPM 100 central measuring station, two Spider measuring amplifiers (each with 8 channels) for dynamic measuring and an MGC plus system with 16 channels for dynamic measurements.

Applied Mechanics Laboratory

Head of laboratory: doc. Ing. Zdeněk Florian, CSc.

The laboratory is mainly used for the preparation of biological samples.  The laboratory also offers a device for determining the constitutive relationships of the rubber rigidity boundaries with biaxial state of stress and a device for conducting tests on rubber and biological samples with biaxial load.

Shared Laboratory of Mechanical Material Testing

Head of laboratory: doc. Ing. Tomáš Návrat, Ph.D.

The laboratory is equipped with the ZWICK Z 020-TND testing machine.  It allows for computer-controlled loading of samples under tension, pressure and torsion including combinations ranging from -60°C to +250°C.

Mechatronics Laboratory (MechLab)

Head of laboratory: doc. Ing. Robert Grepl, Ph.D.

It is one of the educational and research laboratories of the Institute of Solid Mechanics, Mechatronics and Biomechanics. It was founded in 2009 as part of the University Development Fund (FRVŠ) project and continues the previous activities of the Mechatronics and Robotics Laboratory (the common workplace of  the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Institute of Thermomechanics of the ASCR, 2002 - 2008).
