Methodology for measurement of fast projectiles speed decrement during their penetration through various substances using a digital opto-mechanical device
Šperl, Martin ; Gajdoš, Lubomír ; Wolf, Benjamin
This methodology describes the procedures, the equipment and software used for measurement of the speed decrease of flying projectile through different bulk, silicate and solid masses. The advantage and uniqueness of this methodology consists in ability to measure the attenuation characteristics of various materials during the impact by high speed projectile. The methodology is based on a system of thin plates with optic fibers that function as a light-time gate with a defined pitch.
Crystallization force of sodium chloride
Koudelková, Veronika ; Wolf, Benjamin
Soluble salts are one of the most deteriorating factor causing damage of historical building materials due to generation of crystallization pressure inside pore space. Direct measurement of crystallization force is quite challenging, hence we developed at our institute a novel device able to detect the force of growing crystal. The device is based on the monitoring of force developed with upper microscopic glass on the growing crystal to maintain constant position. The crystal could generate force because of the existence of thin liquid layer of solution between both surfaces come into contact. The driving force for the subsequent growth of crystal against obstacle is supersaturation, which is mainly induced by evaporation of the salt solution. In this experiment, the crystal of sodium chloride generated force 16.8 mN and the corresponding crystallization pressure was equal to the value 0.48 MPa.

The report includes the results of the study focusing on the material properties of historical roofing slate tiles and assessment of the state regarding the planned building reconstruction.
Material analyses of plaster samples of the historical building named “Nové Probošství”, Pražský hrad, nám. sv. Jiří č.p. 34.
Drdácký, Miloš ; Slížková, Zuzana ; Frankeová, Dita ; Hasníková, Hana ; Hauková, Petra ; Koudelková, Veronika ; Kozlovcev, Petr ; Ševčík, Radek ; Wolf, Benjamin
The report contains the results of the material analyses of plasters and stone samples taken from the facades and interior plasters of the historical building named “Nové Probošství” (Pražský hrad, nám. sv. Jiří č.p. 34).). The topic of the study was determination of the chemical composition and the microstructure of historical plasters and renders, sandstone petrography, porosity of materials by means of MIP, water absorption of plasters by tubes, the water content and the moisture distribution in masonry wall, the content and the chemical composition of water-soluble salts in plasters and renders. The results of the study serves as the basis for the future design of the building renovation and the restoration of the artistic elements.\n

Assessment of vibrations in museum's environment
Valach, Jaroslav ; Wolf, Benjamin ; Paulová, E. ; Urushadze, Shota
This paper deals with measurement of mechanical vibrations and accelerations threatening objects in museum collections. Two case studies are presented. The first case analyses situation in museum exhibitions strongly influenced by street traffic in its close proximity. It compares results obtained by sensitive professional measurement system to the custom-built user device for acceleration recording. The second case analyzes object’s accelerations during transport based on measurement by the custom-built device.
