Bukov Underground Research Facility (Bukov URF) has been built as a test site to assess the properties and behaviour of the rock mass analogous to selected candidate sites. It is situated at a depth corresponding to the proposed storage depth of the final locality for the Czech Republic´s deep repository of high-level radioactive waste. Bukov URF is located in the Vysočina Region, the cadastral district of Bukov, approx. 3 km south-eastwards from the municipality of Dolní Rožínka. The underground research facility is placed approx. 300 m from the Bukov-1 shaft, namely on the level 12 of the shaft, at the depth of about 550 – 600 meters below the Earth’s surface. As for the regional geology, Bukov URF is found at the southern part of the Rožná uranium deposit, at the north-eastern edge of the Strážek Moldanubicum close to its contact with the Svratka Unit. The rock mass is composed of a relatively monotonous sequence of differently migmatized biotite gneisses to stromatic migmatites, continuing with amphibole-biotite to biotite-amphibole gneisses and amphiboles, with occasional fine intercalations of aplites, pegmatites or calc-silicate rocks (erlanes). Between 2013 and 2017 and within the complex geotechnical characterization of the Bukov URF, the Institute of Geonics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (Ústav geoniky AV ČR, v.v.i.) in Ostrava carried out a series of laboratory and field works in order to provide a detailed description of the geotechnical and geomechanical properties and quality of the rock mass. The works included the determination and assessment of the physical-mechanical properties of the rocks sampled from the walls, boreholes and ground surface in the locality, the determination of stress state and deformation properties of the rock mass using the methods of hydrofracturing of borehole walls, Goodman Jack and CCBO, or CCBM, determination of the rock mass quality based on selected index geomechanical properties, periodic, long-term strain-gauge measurements and convergence measurements, and the assessment of the effect of technical and mine-induced seismicity on the rock mass of interest. The implemented set of research works was supposed to render a sufficient and integral whole of geotechnical and geomechanical knowledge vital for the subsequent implementation of extensive research experiments focused on long-term safety and technical feasibility of the future national deep repository of radioactive waste.
Large-scale geosimulations using GEM and trilions
Blaheta, Radim ; Jakl, Ondřej ; Hrtus, Rostislav ; Kolcun, Alexej ; Kohut, Roman ; Starý, Jiří ; Turan, E.
The project deals with efficient solution of singular symmetric positive semidefinite problems. Our motivation arises from the \nneed to solve special problems of geotechnics, e.g. to perform upscaling analysis of geocomposites. In that and other applications we have to solve boundary problems with pure Neumann boundary conditions. We show that the stabilised PCG method with various preconditioners is a good choice for systems resulting from the numerical solution of Neumann problems, or more generally problems with a known small dimensional null space. The work was also taken as an opportunity to compare parallel implementations of the orresponding solvers, namely implementations in the in-house finite element software GEM and implementations employing components of the general Trilinos library. The studies show that the solvers based on GEM are highly competitive with its recognised counterpart.
Pseudo-triangulations and their use in applied computational geometry
Trčka, Jan ; Kolcun, Alexej (referee) ; Kolingerová, Ivana (advisor)
This thesis shows fundamental properties of pseudo-triangulation, its use as a planar tesselation and implementation of minimal pseudo-triangulation algorithm, which has triangulation as its input. Furthermore, this thesis examines usability of a walking algorithm and two versions of algorithm are proposed. The walking algorithm is also used in an incremental algorithm for a pseudo-triangulation construction. All proposed algorithms have been verified with implementation and experiments.

Slightly generalized regular space decompositions
Kolcun, Alexej
Space decomposition methods represent an important part of numerical modelling process. In many applications it is suitable to use the simplest case of decomposition { regular rectangular grid: the whole raster graphic concept can be seen from this point of view. Dierent raster concept, based on regular hexagonal mesh, is analyzed e.g. in [18]. Generalized task { decomposition of the space to the set of the identical elements have been presented in various research areas since a long time, and it is connected with Hilbert's 18th problem [9], [10].

(Semi) regular tetrahedral tilings
Kolcun, Alexej
Triangulation 2D and 3D methods represent an import ant part of numerical modeling process (e.g. FEM). In many applications it is suitable to use triangulati ons with a regular structure. Moreover, decompositi on with a limited number of different types of tetrahedra ena bles to reduce the storage and computational demand s in the whole modeling process. The submitted contribution presents an overview of possible 3D decompositions using one tetrahedron (regular tilings). These decomposit ions are confronted with decompositions using six d ifferent types of tetrahedra (orthogonal structured tilings) . Considering the shape expressivity of particular methods, the paper presents a structure of possible decompositio ns and comparison of storage demands of the used decompositions.
Shading of Bézier Patches
Kolcun, Alexej ; Bocek, J.
There are well known shading algorithms (Gouraud, Phong) for the surfaces shading. The problem is that such algorithms just approximate the real shading. Precise shading algorithms require the values of normal vectors at all points of rendered surface. Computation of normal vector for Cartesian and triangular parametric surfaces is presented in the paper.

Blaheta, Radim ; Kohut, Roman ; Kolcun, Alexej ; Souček, Kamil ; Staš, Lubomír
The paper describes some experience with the X-ray CT-FEM analysis. It focuses on geocomposites arising by chemical grouting of coal substances and on using mathematical modelling of response to a load. The application potential of this new methodology is found in utilization of obtained properties for solving the stability problems by numerical modelling of geotechnical projects.
Bézier Form of S-Patches
Kolcun, Alexej
In this paper the main properties for the biquadratic case of S-patches are described. Bézier form of patches is used. It gives us the possibility to find the correlation between triangular and quadrilateral patches. Condition for smooth concatenation of biquadratic BS-patches is formulated.
Biquadratic S-Patch in Bézier form
Kolcun, Alexej
Mutual conversions between triangular and quadrilateral meshes need the same degree of both diagonal and boundary curves of quadrilateral meshes. New approach to quadrilateral patches, S-Patches, offers such possibility. The Bézier approach of Smart patches (S-Patch) in the biquadratic case is analyzed. Dependencies among the control points are derived. BS-Patches are presented. Close relation between Bézier triangles and BSPatches is found. Condition for smooth concatenation of biquadratic BS-Patches is formulated.
