Výpočet vlhkostního a deformačního pole v dřevěném prvku
Liška, Jan
In this diploma thesis is processed theoretical analysis of moisture and deformation field of wooden beams. This analysis is used in calculating internal stresses and deformations in model examples using finite element method software. The work is divided according to the types of boundary conditions of the modeled wooden element into three basic groups according to the type of support. The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of moisture load on deformations in the cross-section of a wooden element. Simultaneously with the numerical computation using the software, analytical calculations of deflection were performed for the validation of numerical methods, butt only for the case of force loading without the influence of the humidity gradient.
The Decline of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth 1791-1795
Liška, Jan ; Tumis, Stanislav (advisor) ; Květina, Jan (referee)
This thesis aims to analyze the events that led in the years 1791-1795 to the gradual decline of the Polish-Lithuanian state. The year 1791 was chosen as a starting point for the reason that it was during this year that the so-called Great Sejm adopted the Constitution of 3 May, considered a last attempt to reform the dysfunctional constitutional system that paralysed the political life of the Commonwealth, crippled its ability to defend itself and made it a marionette in the hands of powerful neighbours, especially Prussia and Russia. The thesis concentrates on the ambiguous role played in this period by the last king Stanisław II August. It also focuses on the opposition against the constitutional changes, associated in the so-called Targowica Confederation, the ensuing Russo-Polish War of 1792, the Second Partition of Poland, Kościuszko Uprising and the final Third Partition of 1795 - all these events are discussed in the wider context of European politics. The author makes use of sources and secondary literature in Polish, Russian, German, English and French.
Mechanické vlastnosti vrstveného konstrukčního dřeva ze smrku spojovaného kolíky
Liška, Jan
The main aim of the thesis was an experimental determination of mechanical properties of laminated panels made of construction spruce wood by destructive methods according to EN 408. Panels were made of crosswise stacked spruce lumber connected with beech pins without the use of adhesives. Two versions were produced - three and five-layer panels. Manufactured panels were cut into test specimens which were gradually loaded with 4 points bending to determine maximal bending strength and modulus of elasticity. To determine the shear modulus 3 points bending were used. Test procedures and calculations of the properties were carried out as prescribed in EN 408. The results obtained by experimental measurements were evaluated and compared with the strength classes of structural timber.
Pivot to Asia: What, Why and Whither? The Not So New Obama's Asia Policy
Liška, Jan ; Sehnálková, Jana (advisor) ; Bečka, Jan (referee)
Pivot or Rebalance to Asia-Pacific is a foreign policy launched by the Obama administration at the end of 2011. The essence of the Pivot is that the U.S. recognizes Asia-Pacific as the most dynamic and fastest growing region in the world that will decide the future of global politics and that the U.S. - as a Pacific power - is going to be right at the center of the action. The policy is best described as a set of initiatives ranging from strengthening the U.S. bilateral ties in the area and rebalancing some of the U.S. military assets form other theatres Asia- Pacific to engaging the regional multilateral organizations and negotiating new trade deals - especially the Trans-Pacific Partnership - to foster the regional prosperity. The Pivot to Asia policy, is however, quite controversial as while it is welcome by some Asian countries, it is criticized by China that sees it as an attempt to contain its rise. The policy has now been in place for almost three years. It has evolved since its launch to be less conflictual towards China, however amid the continuing Chinese disputes with its neighbors over the maritime claims at China`s maritime periphery, some observers still question the efficiency of the policy. Moreover, with the continued defense budget cuts, many question that the U.S. is going to be...
The Polish-Soviet Relations from the Beginnings of the Second World War until the end of the 1940s
Liška, Jan ; Tumis, Stanislav (advisor) ; Květina, Jan (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the development of Polish-Soviet relations during and after the Second World War. It focuses on the key events and explores how they influenced the mutual relationship between Poland and the Soviet Union. In the first chapter, attention is devoted to the Nazi-Soviet Pact and its role in the dismemberment of Poland, the Sovietization of the annexed Polish provinces and the Katyn crime. Further on, the circumstances of the signing of the Sikorski-Mayski Agreement, the fate of the Polish army in the USSR and the causes of the break in diplomatic relations between the Polish Government-in-Exile and the Soviet Union are examined. The last two chapters explain the Soviet stance vis-à-vis the Warsaw Uprising, clarify the role the Polish question played in the deliberations of the conferences of the Big Three and give an outline of post-war development. Keywords Polish-Soviet Relations, Poland, Soviet Union, Second World War, Molotov- -Ribbentrop Pact, Katyn, Sikorski-Mayski Agreement, Warsaw Uprising, Big Three
Acoustic properties of word stress in read Czech English
Liska, Jan ; Volín, Jan (advisor) ; Skarnitzl, Radek (referee)
key words: Czech English, foreign accent, word stress, word accent, stressed syllable, duration, f0, acoustic cues. This study investigates the acoustic properties of word stress in Czech English. The notion of foreign accent is introduced and its drawbacks are presented. Further on the various influences on the perceived degree, or strength, of foreign accent are discussed. Faulty realization of word stress is identified as one of the factors that contribute to unintelligibility of non-native speech (Benrabah, 1997; Hahn, 2004; Cutler, 1984). In Chapter 2 we compare the results of studies that used speakers of a variety of languages and form a basic theory on the acquisition of acoustic cues to word stress. We are mostly interested in f0 and duration. This theory, based on the feature hypothesis (McAllister et al., 2002 in Lee, Guion & Harada, 2006), states that languages that have a similar stress system to that of English (Dutch, Arabic) use their native cues to signal word stress, while non-contrastive languages (Vietnamese, Czech) prefer cue/s that are phonologically active on segmental level in their native language. Speakers of Vietnamese, a tone language, were found to prefer f0 over duration (Nguyen, 2003), so for Czech, a language that uses phonological vowel duration, it is expected that...
The influence of the Liberal party on UK politics 1974-1983
Liška, Jan ; Váška, Jan (advisor) ; Kasáková, Zuzana (referee)
The UK general election in February 1974 resulted in the first hung parliament after the Second World War. The result clearly signalled the British two party system is not what it used to be. The people of the United Kingdom was growing dissatisfied with the inability Conservative and Labour governments to tackle the lengthy economic difficulties and other contemporary issues. The dissatisfaction was mirrored by a decline in support for the two main political parties and thereby by an increase of support for third parties, especially the Liberal Party. That is the reason why the Liberal Party enjoyed in this turbulent period from February 1974 general election to 1983 general election a much greater influence on the British politics than at any other point from 1945 to 2010. The aim of this paper is to explore in detail not only the Liberal influence on British politics, but also on British policy and polity. The paper focuses especially on the Lib-Lab pact of 1977-1978, on the birth of the Social Democratic Party and its alliance with the Liberals and on the prospects of the Alliance for the next general election.
Machiavelli's double solutions of resolving Italian crisis. The Prince and Discourses
Liška, Jan ; Kučera, Rudolf (advisor) ; Kučera, Jan (referee) ; Franěk, Jakub (referee)
At the end of 15th and the beginning of 16th century, Italy found itself in a deep political crisis. Although Italy was the most developed part of Europe at that time both culturally and economically, large parts of the peninsula were under direct influence of foreign powers. As a great Florentine and Italian patriot Machiavelli was greatly saddened by development and reflected this situation in his writing. Two greatest pieces of his work The Prince and Discourses on Livy each offer a different solution to this crisis. In The Prince Machiavelli tries to find a way back to Italy's lost freedom and greatness through one extraordinary man - the prince, while in Discourses he concludes that only republican institution and just laws can be the solution. This paper aims to introduce both of these solutions presented by Machiavelli and by comparing them within the correct historical-political context ultimately decide which one of them would Machiavelli himself favour.
