Creating the learning programme for facilitating the higher education school choice and verifying its benefits
Zeman, Jan ; Valenta, Josef (advisor) ; Valášková Vincejová, Eva (referee)
The thesis aims at improving the process of choosing a university by designing an experimental educational course composed of activities focused on self-knowledge and working with information. The theoretical part includes an overview of the existing research about higher education school choice. To create suitable activities, it was necessary to know the importance of choice factors, prospective students' needs and the facts about current sources of information. The thesis also presents the current state of career consulting and courses focused on a similar subject. The empirical part describes the content of the online educational workshop and its implementation including students' evaluation. The verification of the course's benefits was secured by interviews with the students and by evaluation of their learning outcomes from the activities. Furthermore, the thesis contains a description of the research limits caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and a recommendation for future improvements and methodical use. Key words: Higher education choice, career consulting, prospective student, decision-making, designing methodology

For electroprocedures, we chose only a questions about the experience with them, because of the need...
Possibilities of clinical use single and tandem shock waves.
Zeman, Jan ; Beneš, Jiří (advisor) ; Kneppo, Peter (referee) ; Bolek, Lukáš (referee)
Shock waves have been used in medicine for more than 30 year. At the beginning was mainly use for lithotripsy, but today is also applied in other fields of medicine, such as orthopedics, rheumatology and others. Single shock wave is one shock that usually is repeated every 1-1.5 seconds. By contrast tandem shock waves are two shocks consecutively (ideal interval between shocks is from 8 to 15 microseconds), that are repeated. In this work we investigated the clinical use of single and tandem shock waves that are generated entirely new source. It is based on the principle of multichannel discharge. It was found that a single shock wave can destroy the union between bone and bone cement, this effect could be used in orthopedics. Single and tandem shock wave can damage the tumor in vivo, but the principle damage is different. Tandem shockwave is able to cause damage in a depth of acoustically homogeneous medium and enhances the effect of chemotherapy. It would therefore be possible to used single and tandem shock waves in oncology either alone, or their combination with other chemicals. Functional sample of clinically usable applicator of shock waves with a new source was made for these applications. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
Variational Methods in Thermomechanics of Solids
Pelech, Petr ; Kružík, Martin (advisor) ; Dondl, Patrick (referee) ; Zeman, Jan (referee)
The thesis is devoted to study of continuum mechanics and thermodynamics and the related mathematical analysis. It consists of four self-contained chapters dealing with different aspects. The first chapter focuses on peridynamics, a non-local theory of continuum mechanics, and its relation to conventional local theory of Cauchy-Green elasticity. Similar compar- isons has been used for proving consistency and for determining some of the material coefficients in peridynamics, provided the material parameters in the local theory are known. In this chapter the formula for the non-local force-flux is computed in terms of the peridynamic interaction, relating the fundamental concepts of these two theories and establishing hence a new connection, not present in the previous works. The second and third chapters are both devoted to Rate-Independent Systems (RIS) and their applications to continuum mechanics. RIS represents a suitable approximation when the internal, viscous, and thermal effects can be neglected. RIS has been proven to be useful in modeling hysteresis, phase transitions in solids, elastoplasticity, damage, or fracture in both small and large strain regimes. In the second chapter the existence of solutions to an evolutionary rate-independ- ent model of Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) is proven. The model...
Perspectivity and Catastrophe. The Ambivalence of Progress
Zeman, Jan ; Sepp, Hans Rainer (advisor) ; Nitsche, Martin (referee)
Human perspectivity, furthermore progress in all it's categories (for example technical, social or ethical progress) and finally the decline of a culture, are the main emphasizes of this thesis. It will address the issues of what human perspectivity is about and how it behaves towards progress and a cultural-socially overall structure. In historical context, the evolution of progress is set in relation to the evolution of human perspectivity. After the explaining of these two components and the connection between them, lastly, using a concrete example with the perished Easter Island in the southern pacific, it will be shown, how and why civilizations go through certain stages like early culture, high culture and late culture. So the point of this thesis is, to show, how and why human civilizations come to an end and what we should learn from them. Aside from other factors (for example military conflicts with enemies from the outside, which can lead also to a disaster of a culture), in this thesis the focus is on a cultural-ecological research of a self-inflicted catastrophe. The thesis is completed with a proposed solution for the above mentioned problems to improve the relationship between man and his environment, especially the animal. Keywords: human perspectivity, ecological catastrophe,...
Goal-oriented a posteriori error estimates and adaptivity for the numerical solution of partial differential equations
Roskovec, Filip ; Dolejší, Vít (advisor) ; Kanschat, Guido (referee) ; Zeman, Jan (referee)
A posteriori error estimation is an inseparable component of any reliable numerical method for solving partial differential equations. The aim of the goal-oriented a posteriori error estimates is to control the computational error directly with respect to some quantity of interest, which makes the method very convenient for many engineering applications. The resulting error estimates may be employed for mesh adaptation which enables to find a numerical approximation of the quantity of interest under some given tolerance in a very efficient manner. In this thesis, the goal-oriented error estimates are derived for discontinuous Galerkin discretizations of the linear scalar model problems, as well as of the Euler equations describing inviscid compressible flows. It focuses on several aspects of the goal-oriented error estimation method, in particular, higher order reconstructions, adjoint consistency of the discretizations, control of the algebraic errors arising from iterative solutions of both algebraic systems, and linking the estimates with the hp-anisotropic mesh adaptation. The computational performance is demonstrated by numerical experiments.
SYNTHESIZED ENRICHMENT FUNCTIONS FOR EXTENDED FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSES WITH FULLY RESOLVED MICROSTRUCTURE
Doskar, M. ; Novák, J. ; Zeman, Jan
Inspired by the first order numerical homogenization, we present a method for extracting continuous fluctuation fields from the Wang tile based compression of a material microstructure. The fluctuation fields are then used as enrichment basis in Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM) to reduce number of unknowns in problems with fully resolved microstructural geometry synthesized by means of the tiling concept. In addition, the XFEM basis functions are taken as reduced modes of a detailed discretization in order to circumvent the need for non-standard numerical quadratures. The methodology is illustrated with a scalar steady-state problem.

Gradient polyconvexity and its application to problems of mathematical elasticity and plasticity
Zeman, Jiří ; Kružík, Martin (advisor) ; Zeman, Jan (referee)
Polyconvexity is a standard assumption on hyperelastic stored energy densities which, together with some growth conditions, ensures the weak lower semicontinuity of the respective energy functional. The present work first reviews known results about gradient polyconvexity, introduced by Benešová, Kružík and Schlömerkemper in 2017. It is an alternative property to polyconvexity, better-suited e.g. for the modelling of shape-memory alloys. The principal result of this thesis is the extension of an elastic material model with gradient polyconvex energy functional to an elastoplastic body and proving the existence of an energetic solution to an associated rate- independent evolution problem, proceeding from previous work of Mielke, Francfort and Mainik. 1
The development of the selected economic indicators of the former Eastern Block countries after accession to the European Union
Chorvátová, Martina ; Zeman, Jan (advisor) ; Musil, Petr (referee)
This bachelor thesis analyses the level of the change of the economic situation and performance in the countries which were part of the Eastern block in the past after joining the European Union. The selected countries are Slovakia, Estonia, Slovenia, Bulgaria and Romania. The main objective of this thesis is to analyze, on the basis of selected economic indicators, the positive and negative consequences of the countries entry into the EU on the economic performance of the country, but also to analyze the development of the economy over the whole period under review. Another objective is to analyze the dependence between the selected economic indicators. The calculation itself is based on the calculations of the average growth rate, the average absolute increment and the correlation coefficient. Another method used in the analysis is the decomposition of the times series of the economic indicators to the trend and cyclic component using Hodrick Prescott filter and the evaluation of the coherence among chosen indicators. The benefit of this work is to compare the economic performance of the selected countries before and after joining EU and then to answer the question whether the entry into the EU would be beneficial for the other countries that have not been yet classified as EU member states. The analysis is based on the data available in the Eurostat database using the EViews and MS Excel software.
