Felix Romuliana, architecture of the palace complex
Motlochová, Alžběta ; Tušlová, Petra (advisor) ; Musil, Jiří (referee)
Felix Romuliana - the architecture of the palace complex The bachelor thesis describes and analyses the architecture of the Imperial palace complex called Felix Romuliana, built by Tetrarch Galerius (250-311 A. D.), near the Serbian town of Zaječar. The work collects information contained in anthologies, monographs and other publications dealing with this locality, starting in 1975 when the foundations of the ancient city later interpreted as Felix Romuliana were uncovered. On the basis of the information, that were assembled, this work makes an effort to provide a complex description of the individual constructions that are parts of Felix Romuliana and their temporal classification, while an overview of the constructions that were located in this place before the building of the palace complex is also a part of the thesis. The author also deals with the broader historical and cultural circumstances related to the construction of this palace complex as well as its comparison with current imperial buildings of this kind, located in Thessalonica, Trier or Split. Keywords: architecture, comparison, Felix Romuliana, Gamzigrad, Zaječar, Serbia, emperor Galerius, palace of Diocletian in Split, palace in Thessaloniki, palace in Trier.
Vanth and Charun on the relief urns in the context of the Hellenistic period in Etruria.
Zubajová, Marína ; Musil, Jiří (advisor) ; Kysela, Jan (referee)
This thesis presents a research on Vanth and Charun type demon depicted on relief urns from northern Etruria. The research focuses on urns from the Hellenistic period in Etruria (from the end of the 4th till 1st century BC). These urns were made in workshops in three Etruscan cities, which are now called Volterra, Chiusi and Perugia. The urns along with the centers of their production are described in one of the introductory chapters. Subsequently, the thesis focuses on a female demon Vanth and a male demon Charun, identified by their names inscribed on various media. Based on these, basic characteristics of these demons are evaluated and used as a basis for identification of demons on the relief urns in the database. The database is the core of the thesis. Its items are then classified by the production centers and the type of scenes that are in the reliefs on the front of the urns. Description of the urns is supplemented by pictures labeled with the names of the demons identified for a better representation. The data followed in the database are summarized in two analytical tables attached to the thesis. The database is evaluated in the last chapter and the appearance of demons and the attributes they hold in their hands are paid attention to. They are often related to the involvement of Vanth...
Antoninský Limes: Srovnání Antoninova valu a Odenwaldsko-Neckarské sekce Hornogermánského limitu
Dyčka, Michal ; Musil, Jiří (advisor) ; Rummel, Christoph (referee) ; Collins, Robert Michael (referee)
Despite the Limes Romanus has already been studied for more than 150 years, fundamental questions such as its construction, later modifications and primary function itself are still a matter of dynamic debate. From the historical sources it is currently known that a major role during the construction and planning of the whole system performed so called agrimensores using the simple geodetic tools like groma. Therefore, the essential role during the construction of the Limes had the direct visibility between individual sites of the future frontier. The core of this thesis is the presentation of the results of the so called viewshed analysis of individual sites on the Odenwald Limes (Germany) and on the Antonine Wall (Scotland). Based on combination of this method with results of the other spatial analyses in GIS, the nodal sites for both the surveying and operation of the Limes are detected in each studied sector. The thesis is also dealing with the distribution of the units in the landscape, terrain definition of the positioning of individual parts of the Limes as well as with the possibility of mutual signal communication between individual parts of the frontier. The main goal of the thesis is to shed a bit more light on the fundamental questions: how the Limes Romanus was supposed to operate and...

The Transformation of the Imperial Portrait in the 3rd and 4th Century
Kešner, Miroslav ; Musil, Jiří (advisor) ; Militký, Jiří (referee)
This thesis deals with portraiture of roman emperors on their statues and coins during the 3rd and 4th century. It begins with accession of military emperors and ends by Constantinian dynasty. The thesis tries to describe the changes in roman imperial portrait and determine its clearer roadmap. Main influences for roman imperial portraits are found together with milestones within the roadmap. It primarily focuses on individual attributes in the portrait and attempts to define ability to identify emperors themselves. Also, it tries to describe the extent to which these attributes influence the ability to identify the emperor on the statue or on the coin. Moreover, the thesis aims to connect imperial propaganda and portrait of the emperor. Finally, the thesis contains brief historical overview of this era. KEYWORDS: Roman Empire, Roman coins, Roman sculpture, portrait, the Military Emperors, crisis, Gallic Roman Empire, principate, dominate, tetrarchy, Gallienus, Aurelianus, Probus, Diocletianus, Constantinus, Julianus Apostata

Kováčik, Lukáš ; Musil, Jiří (advisor) ; Verčík, Marek (referee)
In this diploma thesis I will deal with symbolism and meanings of exotic cat beasts in different spheres of the Roman Empire. First part will emphasize cat beasts in general. Familiarization with species and subspecies of these beasts and their appearance in time of the greatest territorial expansion of the Roman Empire. In the next main chapter, which contain several sections, I will look into their effect on different parts of people's life (art, funerary context, entertainment etc.). Part of these chapters will be also comparation of the impact of cat beasts on cultures around Roman Empire, on the basis of which I want to evaluate which parts of this impact Romans could adopt and which part are their own. In the end part of thesis, I will focus on archaeological findings related directly with exotic cat beasts. In the very end this work contain also bibliography list of used literature and list of illustrations. Key words Cat beasts, Roman Empire, culture, art, propaganda, arena, gladiator, lion, leopard, tiger, impact.
Form finding of shell structures
Musil, Jiří ; Bažant, Zdeněk (referee) ; Vítek,, Jan (referee) ; Stráský, Jiří (advisor)
The theme of this doctoral thesis is the design of concrete shell structures with the focus on finding their optimal shape. The optimal shape of a concrete shell is the shape in which for a given load (usually the dead weight of the structure) no significant bending moments are generated in the shell and the structure is in the so-called membrane state. The inspiration for this thesis is the work of Swiss engineer Heinz Isler, who developed the shapes of shell structures using model tests of appropriately loaded flexible membranes. He developed the shell structure for large spans by inverting the resultant shape, which carried its weight almost entirely via membrane forces. The numerical solution of the above experiments using Midas Civil is presented herein. The basic principles of the method are demonstrated on the example of sagged cable. The numerically found shapes are compared with the analytical solution. A shell is designed based on the numerically found shapes and its stress response to dead load is described, particularly in relation to the membrane action. In the next part, the acquired knowledge and methods were used to design three relatively complicated shell structures. Each structure was statically analysed and its static behaviour was described. Structures with perfectly rigid or flexible supports, which simulate real behaviour of the supports, were studied. In the final phase, the results of static analysis of the selected shell were experimentally verified on a physical model in a scale of 1: 55.56. The model has been built using 3D printing. The thesis describes the use of a modelling similarity, the model design, the production process, and the experiment. The load test confirmed the optimal design of the shell structure and the validity of the numerical method for finding their shapes.
