Kosina, Jan ; Gryc, Tomáš (advisor) ; Hráský, Pavel (referee)
Title: Muscle tightness and range of motion analysis of selected upper body segments an its connection to selected parametres of experienced junior golf players swing. Objectives: The aim of this work is to assess muscle tightness, range of motion and golf swing kinematics of experienced junior golf players and to evaluate possible connections between muscle tightness, range of movement and golf swing kinematics Methods: Golf swing kinematics was observed by kinematic analyzer CODA Motion System. Selected parametres of golf swing were: shoulder rotation; pelvis rotation; X - factor; angle between shoulders and left arm. Parametres were measured in key moments of a goflf swing: end of backswing; impakt. Muscle tightness was measured by clinical test of muscle tightness according to Janda for selected muscles: m. triceps surae; m. iliopsoas; m. rectus femoris; m. tensor fascies latae; knee flexors; hip adductors; m. piriformis; m. quadratus lumborum; paravertebral muscles; m. pectoralis major; m. trapezius - upper part; m. levator scapulae and m. sternocleidomastoideus. Clinical test of range of motion according to Janda and standart two - arm goniometer was used for range of motion evaluation of selected body segments: hip joint - internal and external rotatio, flexion, extension; shoulder joint -...
Theoretical Description of Measured Signals for Blade Tip Timing Method and Inaccuracy Definition
Maturkanič, Dušan ; Procházka, Pavel ; Košina, Jan ; Voronova, Evgeniya ; Hodboď, Robert
The report describes the results of fluctuating speeds measurements for the blade tip timing method. The complications, occured during signal processing, lead to a detailed analysis of the recorded data. Thus, a theoretical description of the signal characteristics was elaborated. The measuremnts include four regimes in two different conditions. In connection with previous report, this report contains an assessment of a verification measurements with software upgrade.
Deformation energy of Yeoh hyperelastic model and constant hyperelastic proportional damping
Šulc, Petr ; Pešek, Luděk ; Bula, Vítězslav ; Košina, Jan ; Cibulka, Jan
The paper deals with a proposal of the dissipated energy of hard rubbers as a function of the deformation energy expressed by the Yeoh hyperelastic model. Then the deformation energy may be dependent only on the first invariant of deformation. Based on the experiment, a “hyperelastic proportional damping” (HPD) is proposed for hard rubbers under finite strains. It is analogical to the model of proportional damping in the elastic theory, i.e. the dissipated energy is proportional to the deformation energy multiplied by the frequency of dynamic harmonic loading. The Yeoh model is chosen since the deformation function is dependent only on the first strain invariant for a description of the simple shear of a surface cylinder. The constants are used to an enumeration of the deformation energy of the Yeoh model for the specific cases of tested rubbers. The coefficients of hyperelastic proportional damping are evaluated on the basis of experimental results,too.
Acoustic characteristics of 3D human vocal tract model with nasal cavities – preliminary experimental results
Radolf, Vojtěch ; Horáček, Jaromír ; Košina, Jan ; Vampola, T.
Acoustic resonance characteristics of 3D human vocal tract model with nasal and paranasal cavities were measured in three different ways: The excitation was realized by (1) self-oscillating vocal folds replica, (2) by a swept harmonic signal from an earphone placed instead of the vocal folds and (3) by a white noise signal from a loudspeaker located in front of the open mouth of the model. Resulting resonance frequencies are comparable for all excitation signals. These experiments were carried out to verify a complex mathematical model.
Experimental investigation of acoustic characteristics of 3D human vocal tract model with nasal cavities
Radolf, Vojtěch ; Horáček, Jaromír ; Košina, Jan ; Vampola, T.
The following experiments were carried out to be later used in the verification of a complex\nmathematical model of human voice production. Acoustic resonance characteristics of a 3D human voca tract model without and with nasal and paranasal cavities were measured in two different ways: The excitation was realized by (1) self-oscillating vocal folds replica and (2) by sine-tone sweeps from an earphone placed instead of the vocal folds. The resulting resonance and antiresonance frequencies were found to be comparable for both excitation signals.

Dissipated energy of hard rubbers at dynamic torsional finite straining
Šulc, Petr ; Pešek, Luděk ; Bula, Vítězslav ; Cibulka, Jan ; Košina, Jan
The paper deals with a stress analysis of hard rubber under large torsion deformations. This study was motivated by effort to find the dependency the dissipated energy on the deformation energy. Based on the results of an experiment, a function of dissipation energy of hard rubbers for finite strains using the theory hyperelasticity was proposed herein analogically as a prportional damping for elastic theory. Samples of hard rubber of different hardness (EPDM, Silcone) were dynamically tested on the developed torsional test-rig at different frequencies, amplitudes. First the Mooney Rivlin model (MRM) for a shear case of loading was analytically developed and then MRM constants were attained by fitting of the MRM to the experimental torsion-deformation curve. These constants were used to obtain the deformation energy of the MRM models. The coefficients of hyperelastic proportional damping relating a dissipated energy to a strain energy were evaluated for tested rubbers on the basis of experimental results.
Experimental modelling of phonation using artificial models of human vocal folds and vocal tracts
Horáček, Jaromír ; Radolf, Vojtěch ; Bula, Vítězslav ; Košina, Jan
The study provides information on experimental research on a complete 1:1 scaled model of human phonation. The model includes human lungs, the trachea, the laryngeal part with artificial vocal folds and the vocal tracts designed for different vowels. The measurement set up enables modelling the time signals not easily measured in humans during phonation as for example fluctuations of the subglottic, laryngeal and oral pressures measured simultaneously with the glottis opening and the glottis area registered by a high-speed camera. The simulation of phonation is performed in the ranges of the airflow rate and the subglottic pressure typical for a normal humans' physiology.
