Teaching
activity in numerical mathematics,
differential equations, mathematical modelling and mathematical and numerical methods in fluid dynamics. Supervisor of 47 Master Theses and 20 PhD Theses.
Scientific
activity in partial differential
equations, numerical and computational mathematics and mathematical methods in fluid dynamics. The most important works are concerned with mathematical theory and numerical analysis
of inviscid and viscous flow,
transonic flow, nonlinear convectiondiffusion, theory of the finite
element, boundary element and
finite volume methods, theory and applications
of the discontinuous
Galerkin method, fluidstructure interaction.
Scientific
cooperation with industrial
companies SKODA in Pilsen and CKD in Prague in mathematical and numerical modelling of flows in steam turbines and compressors
(19701997), since 2003 with
the Institute of Thermomechanics of the Academy of
Sciences of the Czech Republic
and Aeronautical Research and Test Institute in Prague in the area of aeroelasticity. Coauthor of papent for the water drops separator to 1000 MW steam turbine.
