  • ESTIMATION OF THE LATERAL AERODYNAMIC COEFFICIENTS FOR SKYWALKER X8 FLYING
           WING FROM REAL FLIGHT-TEST DATA

    • Authors: Rahman Mohammadi Farhadi, Vyacheslav Kortunov, Andrii Molchanov, Tatiana Solianyk
      Pages: 77 - 91
      Abstract: Stability and control derivatives of Skywalker X8 flying wing from flight-test data are estimated by using the combination of the output error and least square methods in the presence of the wind. Data is collected from closed loop flight tests with a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller that caused data co-linearity problems for the identification of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) dynamic system. The data co-linearity problem is solved with a biased estimation via priori information, parameter fixing and constrained optimization, which uses analytical values of aerodynamic parameters, the level of the identifiability and sensitivity of the measurement vector to the parameters. Estimated aerodynamic parameters are compared with the theoretically calculated coefficients of the UAV, moreover, the dynamic model is validated with additional flight-test data and small covariances of the estimated parameters.

  • OPTIMALIZATION OF PHOTOREACTOR GEOMETRY FOR THE CULTIVATION OF
           CHLAMYDOMONAS REINHARDTII

    • Authors: Roman Fekete, Terézia Žáková, Ľudmila Gabrišová, Peter Kotora, Peter Peciar, Dominika Gahurová, Miroslava Slaninová
      Pages: 92 - 103
      Abstract: At the present time, a great attention is being paid to the use of algae. Algae can adapt to different conditions and can produce substances corresponding to responsible environments. The main problem in their cultivation is the design of a suitable photoreactor. It should create the optimal conditions for their growth, which is mainly dependent on the contact of the algae with the light. The intensity of the light depends on the hydrodynamic conditions in the photoreactor and on its geometry. This paper deals with the study of kinetics of growth and gross biomass yield of biomass in laboratory photobioreactors, respecting their geometrical similarity as a basis for a possible scale-up. An optimal ratio between biomass growth rate and its gross biomass yield as a function of the photoreactor geometry is searched. Chlamydomonas reinhardtii were used as the model organism.

  • STABILITY OF SYNTHESIZED SILVER NANOPARTICLES IN CITRATE AND MIXED
           GELATIN/CITRATE SOLUTION

    • Authors: Jana Kavuličová, Anna Mražíková, Oksana Velgosová, Dana Ivánová, Martina Kubovčíková
      Pages: 104 - 108
      Abstract: The study focuses on an investigation of the influence of both citrate and mixed gelatin/citrate as a reductant and stabilizer on the colloidal stability of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs)synthesized by a chemical reduction of Ag+ ions after a short - (7th day) - and long - (118th day) - term storage. Formed AgNPs were characterized by a UV–vis Spectroscopy, Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), Dynamic light scattering (DLS) and Zeta-potential (ZP). The obtained results revealed that a short-term stability of the synthesized AgNPs was greatly influenced by a citrate stabilizer with the absence of gelatin. Smaller-sized AgNPs (average particle diameter of 3 nm), roughly spherical in a shape, were obtained with a narrow size distribution. The very negative value of the Zeta-potential confirmed a strong stability of the citrate capped AgNPs. However, a surface coating of the AgNPs by a gelatin/citrate stabilizer was found to be a dominant contributor in improving a long-term stability of the AgNPs (average particle diameter of 26 nm). The use of gelatin in mixed stabilizer solution provided the AgNPs with higher monodispersity and a controllable size after both the short and long-term storage.

  • BATHYMETRY FROM WORLDVIEW-3 SATELLITE DATA USING RADIOMETRIC BAND RATIO

    • Authors: Claudio Parente, Massimiliano Pepe
      Pages: 109 - 117
      Abstract: The use of optical satellite sensors allows to obtain bathymetry data on large area ina short time and in a cheap way. In addition, in particular places where it is difficult to carry out the survey by classic methods, the bathymetry from satellite data can be the only mode to obtain the depth of the backdrop. So, the aim of this research paper is to analyse the potential of the eight bands and the very high resolution of the commercial satellite WorldView-3 (WV-3) in order to obtain bathymetric data. Using WV-3 satellite data and the Stumpf method, the paper intends to investigate the possibility of obtaining bathymetric data in a specific area where the water is not particularly clear. To achieve this goal, in Geographic Information System (GIS) environment, several algorithms have been developed. The comparison between the results and the reference bathymetric data shows a huge potential of the WV-3 satellite data. The area of study concerns the port area of the city of Lisbon and a part of the river Rio Tejo, in Portugal.

  • QUASI-EXACTLY SOLVABLE SCHRÖDINGER EQUATIONS, SYMMETRIC POLYNOMIALS AND
           FUNCTIONAL BETHE ANSATZ METHOD

    • Authors: Christiane Quesne
      Pages: 118 - 127
      Abstract: For applications to quasi-exactly solvable Schrödinger equations in quantum mechanics, we consider the general conditions that have to be satisfied by the coefficients of a second-order differential equation with at most k + 1 singular points in order that this equation has particular solutions that are nth-degree polynomials. In a first approach, we show that such conditions involve k - 2 integration constants, which satisfy a system of linear equations whose coefficients can be written in terms of elementary symmetric polynomials in the polynomial solution roots whenver such roots are all real and distinct. In a second approach, we consider the functional Bethe ansatz method in its most general form under the same assumption. Comparing the two approaches, we prove that the above-mentioned k - 2 integration constants can be expressed as linear combinations of monomial symmetric polynomials in the roots, associated with partitions into no more than two parts. We illustrate these results by considering a quasi-exactly solvable extension of the Mathews-Lakshmanan nonlinear oscillator corresponding to k = 4.

  • ŽAMPA’S SYSTEMS THEORY: A COMPREHENSIVE THEORY OF MEASUREMENT
           IN DYNAMIC SYSTEMS

    • Authors: Renata Rychtáriková, Jan Urban, Dalibor Štys
      Pages: 128 - 143
      Abstract: The article outlines in memoriam Prof. Pavel Žampa’s concepts of system theory which enable us to devise a measurement in dynamic systems independently of the particular system behaviour. From the point of view of Žampa’s theory, terms like system time, system attributes, system link, system element, input, output, sub-systems, and state variables are defined. In Conclusions, Žampa’s theory is discussed together with another mathematical approaches of qualitative dynamics known since the 19th century. In Appendices, we present applications of Žampa’s technical approach to measurement of complex dynamical (chemical and biological) systems at the Institute of Complex Systems, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice.

  • APPLICATION OF THE TEMPERATURE OSCILLATION METHOD IN HEAT TRANSFER
           MEASUREMENTS AT THE WALL OF AN AGITATED VESSEL

    • Authors: Stanislav Solnař, Martin Dostál, Karel Petera, Tomáš Jirout
      Pages: 144 - 154
      Abstract: The Temperature Oscillation Infra-Red Thermography (TOIRT) was used to measure convective heat transfer coefficients at the inner vertical wall of an agitated and baffled vessel. Two impellers were used: an axial six-blade impeller with pitched blades and the Rushton turbine. The TOIRT method represents an indirect method based on measuring the phase shift between the oscillating heat flux applied to one side of the heat transfer surface and the wall temperature response monitored by a contactless infra-red camera at the same side. On the basis of this phase shift, the TOIRT method can indirectly evaluate the heat transfer coefficient on the other side of the heat transfer surface. Two forms of experimental results are presented in this paper. The first one describes graphical dependencies of the local Nusselt number on the dimensionless distance from the vessel bottom for various Reynolds numbers. The second form describes the mean Nusselt number along the wall as a function of the Reynolds number.

  • CHIMNEY RESERVOIRS: UNIQUE TECHNICAL STRUCTURES FROM THE FIRST HALF OF THE
           20TH CENTURY IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

    • Authors: Martin Vonka, Robert Kořínek
      Pages: 155 - 164
      Abstract: In the past, various methods and technological systems were used to supply water on industrial and other sites. In the early 19th century, Professor Otto Intze invented a new form of water reservoir that could be installed in a tower tank or even on the body of a chimney. This gave rise to a structure that had never been seen before – a chimney reservoir. The advantages of this structure resulted in it quickly becoming very popular, especially in the country in which it originated, Germany. The structure spread from the German Empire into other countries, including Austria-Hungary. The first chimney reservoir on the Czech territory originated in the late 19th century, the last structure of this type was built in 1962. Although their history was short, more than sixty distinctive structures of this kind were built in the Czech lands, the twenty-one of which that have survived to the present day can be described as a unique industrial heritage. This article outlines the origin and evolution of different types of chimney reservoirs and describes the structural and technological designs used for such structures on the territory of what is now known as the Czech Republic.
