Influencing of the Pile-Up and the Sink-In by the Coefficient of Friction in the Nanoindentation Test
Kovář, J. ; Fuis, Vladimír ; Čtvrtlík, Radim
The influence of the coefficient of friction between an indenter and a specimen on the height of the pile-up or depth of the sink-in during the nanoindentation test is discussed in this paper. When the indenter is pressed into the hard material, the sink-in behavior causes the bending of the specimen’s surface under the indenter. When the indenter is pressed into the soft material, the deformed material accumulates under the sides of the indenter and makes a pile-up region. The pile-up or sink-in behavior influences the contact area. In this paper, the finite element method was used for calculation of the dependency between the depth of the sink-in or height of the pile-up and the coefficient of friction. The results showed that while there is not any dependency between the friction and the depth of the sink-in, there is a strong dependency between the friction and the height of the pile-up until a specific value of the coefficient of friction. When the pile-up behavior occurs, the friction influences the contact area and should be included into the calculation of the contact area.

Fuis, Vladimír ; Kašuba, D.
The paper presents the stress and deformation analyses of the new design of the filter press made by Envites spol. s r. o. The analyses are solved in system ANSYS and there are nonlinear - due to the modelling by the contact elements and due to the material nonlinearities.

Krejsa, Jiří ; Věchet, Stanislav
Abstract: The paper deals with the classification of Czech sign language single hand alphabet letters from static images using convolutional neural network (CNN). Proposed CNN architecture exhibits about 71% successful rate of classifying the letters signed by the person not included in the training data set.
Effect of the controllable bearings lubricated by magnetically sensitive oil on vibration of rigid rotors
Zapoměl, Jaroslav ; Ferfecki, P.
Dynamical properties of hydrodynamic bearings depend of the Sommerfeld number. To avoid rupture of the oil film of heavily loaded bearings or inducing self-excited oscillation of rotors operating at high angular velocities the Sommerfeld number should remain in a certain interval that depends of the bearing size and design. The only parameter that can be changed during the rotor running to adapt the Sommerfeld number and thus the bearing performance to the current operating conditions is the dynamical viscosity. This is offered by application of magnetic fluids as lubricants. This paper reports on a new design concept of a controllable hydrodynamic bearings lubricated by composite liquid. The research is focused on investigation of the possibilities of the control process on the load capacity of the bearings and on the rotor vibration amplitude attenuation.
Efficient numerical computation of the steady-state response and stability analysis of the rotor systems with squeeze film dampers
Molčan, M. ; Ferfecki, P. ; Zapoměl, Jaroslav
The aim of this paper is to demonstrate capabilities of the created numerical procedure, which is based on harmonic balance method. Furthermore, the procedure incorporates the alternating frequency-time domain technique and the arc-length parameterization to solve the steady-state response of nonlinear systems in efficient manner, including unstable branches. The stability of the motion was assessed by two methods: the 2n-pass method and Hill’s method. The procedure was verified on an example from literature to prove its sufficient accuracy and subsequently, the procedure was applied on the finite element model of the rotor systém mounted on the squeeze film dampers. The carried out computational simulations confirmed that the created procedure is efficient for the strongly nonlinear response and it gives similar results as the time integration.
Three-dimensional numerical analysis of Czech vowel production
Hájek, P. ; Švancara, P. ; Horáček, Jaromír ; Švec, J. G.
Spatial air pressures generated in human vocal tract by vibrating vocal folds present sound sources of vowel production. This paper simulates phonation phenomena by using fluid-structure-acoustic scheme in a three-dimensional (3D) finite element model of a Czech vowel [o:]. The computational model was composed of four-layered M5-shaped vocal folds together with an idealized trachea and vocal tract. Spatial fluid flow in the trachea and in the vocal tract was obtained by unsteady viscous compressible Navier-Stokes equations. The oscillating vocal folds were modelled by a momentum equation. Large deformations were allowed. Transient analysis was performed based on separate structure and fluid solvers, which were exchanging loads acting on the vocal folds boundaries in each time iteration. The deformation of the fluid mesh during the vocal fold oscillation was realized by the arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian approach and by interpolation of fluid results on the deformed fluid mesh. Preliminary results show vibration characteristics of the vocal folds, which correspond to those obtained from human phonation at higher pitch. The vocal folds were self-oscillating at a reasonable frequency of 180 Hz. The vocal tract eigenfrequencies were in the ranges of the formant frequencies of Czech vowel [o:] measured on humans, during self-oscillations the formants shifted to lower frequencies.

Anomalies detection in time-series data for the internal diagnostics of autonomous mobile robot
Věchet, Stanislav ; Krejsa, Jiří ; Chen, K.S.
Autonomous mobile robots are complex mechatronic machines which consists of numerous hardware and software modules working asynchronously to achieve desired behaviour. As there are many frameworks which helps to overcome the flat learning curve the problem of internal diagnostics arises. While users and developers are able to focus only on solving the high level problem algorithm or methods the internal states of the system is hidden. This helps to separate the users from solving hardware issues, which is helping until everything works properly. We present an algorithm which is able to detect anomalies in time based behaviour of the robot to improve the users confidence that the internal robot framework works correctly and as desired. The algorithm is based on probabilistic patterns detection based on Bayesian probabilistic theory.
Analysis of measurement of temperature dependence inside rubber sample under dynamic harmonic load
Šulc, Petr ; Pešek, Luděk ; Bula, Vítězslav ; Šnábl, Pavel ; Cibulka, Jan ; Košina, Jan
This work deals with the preparation and methodology of temperature measurement inside a rubber sample. In this paper, a rubber sample with temperature sensors is described and a description with a temperature measurement scheme under torsional dynamic stress with the possibility of measurement in a temperature chamber is proposed. Large torsional deformations are considered for harmonic torsional loads. The reason for these measurements is to determine the temperature dependence and sensitivity of the heat output parameters.
Experimental modelling of vibroacoustics of the human vocal tract with compliant walls
Radolf, Vojtěch ; Horáček, Jaromír ; Košina, Jan
Experimental model of human vocal tract cavities with hard walls has been modified to take into account the compliance of the soft tissue of the human vocal tract. The paper presents the studied acoustic-structural interaction of the vocal tract cavities with a dynamical system originated in vibration of the soft tissue. The experimental results are in qualitative agreement with the results of mathematical modelling. Compliant walls of acoustic cavities generate additional low frequency acoustical-mechanical resonances of the system and increase acoustic resonance frequencies.
