Compressible Navier-Stokes-Fourier system for the adiabatic coefficient close to one
Skříšovský, Emil ; Pokorný, Milan (advisor) ; Feireisl, Eduard (referee)
In the present thesis we study the compressible Navier-Stokes-Fourier sys- tem. This is a system of partial differential equations describing the evolutionary problem for an adiabatic flow of a heat conducting compressible viscous fluid in a bounded domain. Here we consider the problem in two dimensions with zero Dirichlet boundary conditions for velocity. The cold pressure term in the pressure law for the momentum equation is here considered in the form pC(ϱ) ∼ ϱ logα (1+ϱ) for some α > 0, for which we need to work on the scale of Orlicz spaces in order to obtain useful estimates and in those space we formulate the problem weakly and also establish the weak compactness of the solution. The main result of this thesis is Theorem 6.1 where we show the existence of a weak solution with no assumptions on the size of the data and on arbitrary large time intervals. 1
Obsessed by Memory: Modiano, Perec, Sebald
Hřídelová, Nina Justina ; Pokorný, Martin (advisor) ; Činátlová, Blanka (referee)
This thesis is based on the theoretical framework of memory studies and deals with the question of memory and trauma representation in the prose works of Patrick Modiano, Georges Perec and W. G. Sebald. The thesis analyses a number of their works and focuses on the possibilities and difficulties of representing the traumatic experience of the Holocaust as well as the tension between the authors' personal memory and the collective and cultural memory expressed in post-war literature. Looking at the individual texts, the thesis traces various signs of traumatic narrative displayed in them, such as hypertrophied memory motifs and instruments, disruptions of linear chronology or a specific register that makes elements of extreme experience penetrate into the everyday. The thesis reaches two conclusions: first, that the traumatic narrative scheme is firmly tied to narration per se and reveals its transformative potential; second, that by means of the tools of traumatic narration, the authors find common ground in the ethical imperative of testimony.
New aproaches to myocardial atrophy attenuation after mechanical unloading - Experimental study of heterotopic heart transplantation in rats
Pokorný, Martin ; Malý, Jiří (advisor) ; Ošťádal, Petr (referee) ; Rohn, Vilém (referee)
Cardiac atrophy, as a result of a long term mechanical unloading observed in patients treated with mechanical circulatory supports, represents a substantial obstacle in cardiac recovery. The first aim of this thesis was to evaluate the course of unloading-induced cardiac atrophy in healthy and failing heart. Mechanical unloading was studied in an experimental model of heterotopic heart transplantation in rats. Heart failure was experimentally induced by chronic volume overload achieved by creation of aorto-caval fistula. The second aim of this thesis was to discover if dietary induced increase in fatty acids concentration in heart tissue, specifically myristic, palmitic and palmitooleic, that are believed to promote physiological heart growth, could attenuate the course of cardiac atrophy. The third aim of this thesis was to examine if increased isovolumic loading obtained by intraventricular implantation of newly designed spring expander would attenuate the development of cardiac atrophy. The level of cardiac atrophy was evaluated as the weight loss of the heterotopically tranplanted heart compared to the control heart on days 7, 14, 21 and 28 after heterotopic transplantation. The cardiomyocyte width and the level of cardiac fibrosis was studied simultaneously. Mechanical unloading following heterotopic...
Antenna array to determine positions of airplanes
Zelenka, Pavel ; Pokorný, Michal (referee) ; Raida, Zbyněk (advisor)
The project is aimed to design an antenna array for an aircraft positioning system at an airport. The system operates at frequencies 1030 MHz and 1090 MHz. The antenna is also used by the DME/TACAN system operating in frequency range from 1025 MHz to 1150 MHz. The required impedance bandwidth of the antenna array is 125 MHz, i.ee from 1025 MHz to 1150 MHz. The theoretical part of the thesis analyses properties of different patch antennas and discusses the possibility of extending the impedance bandwidth. The practical part is focused on the development of the numerical model of the broadband stacked patch antennas. In addition, properties of the 3-element and 4-element antenna array are compared. At the end, results of the thesis are summarized.
A COMPARISON OF THE CENTRIFUGAL FORCE SPINNING AND ELECTROSPINNING OF COLLAGEN UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS
Hlavatá, J. ; Suchý, Tomáš ; Šupová, Monika ; Pokorný, M. ; Košťáková, E.
Collagen makes up one of the most important parts of the extracellular matrix and connective tissue. Collagen type I accounts for up to 90% of the collagen found in the body and it can be isolated and purified in large quantities and processed into a variety of forms. With respect to the process of the treatment of collagen into the nano-fibrous and submicron-fibrous forms, severe conditions leading to the denaturation of the collagen and thus the gelatin content should be avoided. Centrifugal force spinning and electrospinning processes appear to present promising methods for the spinning of collagen solutions. This paper deals with a comparison of the various methods applied in the processing of collagen, i.e. principally needle and needleless centrifugal spinning technology and electrospinning technology. In addition, the effect of process parameters and collagen solution conditions on the final form of the material was analyzed. Spun layers were prepared based on collagen type I isolated from calf skin. Nano-structured layers were prepared employing the spinning of 4-16 wt% collagen solutions in phosphate buffer saline and ethanol. The layers thus prepared were characterized by means of scanning electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
Care of aging or dying individuals with mental disabilities living in residential facilities
Pokorný, Marek ; Dragomirecká, Eva (advisor) ; Holasová, Lenka (referee)
This bachelor thesis investigates possibilities of care provision for ageing or dying people with intellectual disabilities within different types of residential facilities as are for instance homes for people with disabilities, sheltered housing, nursing homes or week-care centers. For purposes of this research, residential facilities in Prague were chosen to examine what their approach is when it comes to the issues related to ageing or dying of their clients, how they consider their special needs and what are the barriers keeping them from living the rest of their lives in the environment of residential services which they often perceive as their home. Keywords Individuals with mental disabilities, elderly, living facilities, aging, dying.

The Bachelor work describe nutrition of dairy cows in selected companies. The main parameter of successful cattle breeding is the provision of natural condition especially for breeded animals. This is mainly about housing conditions of natural movement, nutrition and feeding that corresponds to the suitable physiological needs. With time and the new trends are to increase the quality of cattle breeding, to improve the quality of optimal nutrition, to manage and to implement it. At this companies I focused nutrition of dairy cows which this companies exploits. At the Bachelor work describe nutrition of dairy cows which is great for health and welfare of dairy cows.
Memory and Time in Augustine's Confessiones and in Proust's A la Recherche du Temps Perdu
Roreitnerová, Alena ; Karfíková, Lenka (advisor) ; Petříček, Miroslav (referee) ; Pokorný, Martin (referee)
This presented paper is a parallel reading of two works which both connect a philosophical perception of time and memory with an actual narration. The first is one of the earliest spiritual autobiographies of late antiquity - Confessions - and the second is a modern novel - In Search of Lost Time. A distinctive (originally Neoplatonic) understanding of eternity as simultaneity opens a line of questioning which both Confessions and In Search of Lost Time have in common: What is the relation between time and eternity (extra-temporality in Proust's case) and is it possible at all for a time being to have a relation to something what is eternal? In both works, the mediating role between time succession and timeless simultaneity is played by narration and memory. Part I of the paper (Chapter 1) deals with Augustine's understanding of time which can be found not only in Book XI of Confessions but also throughout the whole work including its narrative passages; it also partly takes into consideration Book VI of De musica. It tries to answer a more general question, i.e. whether Augustine in his autobiography concentrates only on subjective time or whether he is interested in time as such (in contrast to eternity). The answer is intended to be found through the analysis of questions the author of...

Recent promising treatments for Huntington’s disease (HD) may require pre-clinical testing in large animals. In 2009, we generated HD transgenic (TgHD) minipigs with one copy encoding the N-terminal part (548 aa) of human huntingtin (HTT) with 124 CAG/CAA repeats integrated into chromosome 1 q24-q25. The successful germ line transmission occurred through four successive generations.
