About Me

I have a strong research as well as practical oriented experience in application of advanced information technology in engineering problems such as: advanced mathematical and numerical modelling of brittle and heterogeneous materials, simulation of engineering structures, grid/cloud/parallel computing of engineering problems, modelling of smart/intelligent structures/buildings. My professional goal is to strive for new development in these methods and bring them closer to practicing engineers and to extend the applicability of these modern methods in engineering practice.

Recent consulting projects involving application of advanced engineering simulation in practice

  • Design of jacket foundation connections of offshore wind farm using advanced fracture mechanics based nonlinear analysis, Hochtief, Germany, 2012
  • Verification of nuclear containment strength by non-linear analysis, Okiluoto 3 NPP, AREVA, Finland, 2005-2007
  • River nuclear containment delamination, Performance Imp. Int., USA, 2008
  • Tunnel Dobrovskeho in Brno, optimization of tunnel RC lining, Metrostav, Praha
  • Tunnel Brezno, failure analysis, SUDOP, Praha
  • Bridge, Novak & Partner, Praha, nonlinear analysis of construction process of segmental pre-stressed concrete bridge.
