Advanced structures for thermal insulation in extreme conditions

The core of the project is to is to study the thermal behavior of high-performance textiles, describe the mechanism of heat transfer in fibrous structures under extreme conditions and developing a general, scientifically supported, methodology of constructing thermal insulation layers. To determine the heat resistance of the fabric in cold conditions in accordance with standards, the losses of heat conduction are negligible and convection and radiation have to be considered. Conventional devices for evaluation of thermal resistance of clothing are based on the measurement of thermal conductivity under standard climatic conditions, which is not useful for extreme conditions. For these reasons, the project also includes the development of the measuring tunnel, which can be used to measure the total heat loss of textiles below freezing temperatures. In construction of the new heat insulating layers, the materials which reduce heat transport by radiation will also be observed. A prediction system for thermal insulation properties of the textile layers will be created.

Aggregation of Methodologies Based on Economic Data

We shall study and develop aggregations of two or more research methodologies, optimal with respect to the observed data, in order to reach the most accurate conclusion. The task is also to aggregate adequately several available datasets. We shall follow mainly applications in economics, business and insurance. Although these problems have been followed by the scientific society for a long time, the current situation brings new demands on the fast, flexible and accurate conclusions, based on innovating ideas. This will be guaranteed also by our new original methods based on profound mathematical results. The optimality criteria depending on the situation will use the expected utility, risk and entropy. We shall utilize the score functions and density quantile transformations, which enable us to get rid of dependence on location and scale and to concentrate on the shape. In decision making we shall use the Choquet capacities dominating the groups of possible conclusions and decisions.

Biomechanically defined absorbable materials for cardiovascular surgery

Many vascular surgery procedures such as the palliative treatment of congenital heart diseases, the wrapping of aneurysms and arterialized vein grafts or endoleak prevention are based on the mechanical interaction of the arterial wall and an externalreinforcement. This project concerns the development of a composite consisting of a copolymer of poly(Llactide)(PLA)/polycaprolactone(PCL) nanofibers combined with a collagen matrix for use in resorbable arterial bands which will enable a reduction in arterial blood flow and arterial wall protection against pathological changes and rupture. The structural, degradation and mechanical characteristics of the PCL/PLA/collagen composite will be determined in a simulated body environment and after sterilization. The biocompatibility will be verified on cell cultures and in rat peritoneum. Biomechanical and degradation properties and material-artery biological interactions will be analyzed in rabbit model. Proof of the arterial bands function will be provided via pulmonary artery and abdominal aorta banding using a piglet model.

Data Drive Research @ CXI TUL

Many departments of the Technical University of Liberec are involved in research and innovation projects that require the storage, processing and analysis of an increasing volume of data due to the gradual digitalization of technical equipment and processes. This is related to the fragmentation of technical solutions for data storage and security from local, shared, network to cloud storage without clear governance and effective cost analysis for stored/transferred data. With the increasing connectivity of individual devices, the issue of device security and the authenticity, unquestionability or auditability of measured data also needs to be addressed responsibly. Unfortunately, there is no uniform and systematic solution in this area, no clear and updated device assesment, no corresponding binding methodology not only at CxI and the Technical University of Liberec, but neither at many other universities. The aim of the DDR project is to lay the foundations of Data-Driven Research and, based on the description of the AS-IS situation and user requirements, to define a methodology for the registration and categorization of devices, their integration into the technological network, standardization and the possibility to access measured data not only from the university premises, but also from home, for example. The draft methodology will be verified at several CxI pilot sites and developed into a cloud application containing, in addition to the basic function of equipment registration, in particular an evaluation section and an interactive proposal for a suitable technical solution and cost indication in order to make maximum use of the available e-infrastructure and CESNET services. This will enable the systematic digitisation and subsequent standardisation of research processes, the standardisation of measured data and thus an increase in international competitiveness.

Distributed Artificial Intelligent Systems

The ascent of artificial intelligence in edge computing and the accompanying ascent of cloud storage and computing has swept over Europe without any local winners and, at times, in clear conflict with the European way of life. The cloud paradigm is based on technologies that are dominated by American and Chinese companies. The commercial approach towards privacy of the American companies and the governmental interference of the Chinese companies makes Europe’s dependence these technologies undesirable. At the same time the demand for artificial intelligence is pulled from the current devices that roughly equal the capacity of a laptop towards devices that have a significantly smaller footprint but a much higher prevalence. The highest benefit of using these smaller devices is found when used very close to where reality is sensed or influenced. This calls for small, low cost, distributed devices. These types of devices makes using centralized architectures, such as cloud solutions, less logical and opens the door for a paradigm switch towards distributed thinking (for example peer-to-peer, mesh). This switch also provides Europe with an opportunity to catch up and provide solutions that show European values such as energy efficiency, self organisation and privacy by design. This project builds a consortium that delivers a solution in each of the key application areas of which all smart, AI enabled, components are delivered by European members of the consortium based on the key European values named above.

Enhanced In Situ Bioremediation for Contaminated Land Remediation

The Enhanced Innovative In Situ Biotechnologies for Contaminated Land Remediation (EiCLaR)” project integrates biological and non-biological processes to extend the sustainability and cost effectiveness benefits of in situ bioremediation (ISBR) to a far wider range of land contamination problems. Bioremediation of contaminated sites has grown exponentially since the early 1990’s, but the applications of different biotechnologies have levelled off in part because of their inability to deal with complex environments in a rapid and competitive manner. Our objective is to lift biotechnologies to new performance levels through the fusion of these approaches with non-biological processes. Targeting difficult and/or complex contaminant mixtures and sites, we will develop and market innovative biotechnologies for contaminant destruction. We will produce cutting-edge, effective, and sustainable remediation alternatives, capable of practical and commercial deployment within three years after EiCLaR is completed.

European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management – ConCord

The main aim is to look into the influence of irradiation on the compacted Ca-Mg bentonite – carbon steel system under anaerobic conditions, thermally affected up to 150°C and a focus on accelerated corrosion rates in comparison with non-irradiated system under anaerobic conditions in anaerobic box. Complementary system heated up to 90 °C will also be available. Moreover, the proposed experimental programme will enable us to study survivability of microorganisms in extreme transient conditions. The second goal is therefore to prove the assumption of limited microbially induced corrosion (MIC) under the high stress load and to assess the survivability of bacteria (regenerated from spores) that can be involved in MIC after transients are over. We propose a hypothesis that heat and radiation will have a more deleterious effect on survivability in water saturated (and dispersed) samples than in desiccated ones.

European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management – MAGIC

The MAGIC WP will assess the impact of several simultaneous chemical processes (hydrolysis, multi-ionic attack (i.e. sulfate and magnesium), carbonation) on the mechanical properties of cementitious materials and their evolution. The WP proposes different processes to assess the long-term performance of cement based materials, including a hydraulic transient (re-saturation period with waters from different geological media). It will leverage and build on the advances on past and current European projects (mainly CEBAMA, PREDIS, ACED, DONUT WPs) and explicitly exclude the repetition of activities conducted in these previous or ongoing projects. The final goal is to obtain an improved understanding of chemo-mechanical ageing of cementitious materials exposed to various representative chemical disturbances coming from the disposal environment.

Excellence for Digital Education in Materials Engeneering

The idea of the project DigiMat has arisen from the observed inconsistency between the digitalized world of the present times and the educational system that to high extend do not come up with the contemporary expectations. In fact, the critical time of pandemic situation of COVID-19 revealed the problems of transformation of traditional forms of teaching and learning to digital way that arose in the form of global educational crisis. Although the ICT technologies are already present in modern, innovative education, still the research, experimental and technology-oriented subjects (such as materials science and engineering) may greatly benefit from support for teachers that wants to conduct them in an on-line form and satisfy high students involvement, motivation and creativity. The proposed project aims at increasing the teachers capability to conduct technology-oriented subjects/projects digitally in student-oriented manner. The devotion of teachers in the transformation of their classes for the purpose of distant-learning requires basing on good practices of international consortium. Additionally, the approach towards new forms of education should cover the understanding of the needs and motivators of students that can be consciously used to stimulate the learning process. It also seems significant to constantly modify the taught content at the level of higher education, to integrate it firmly with the environment of scientific research.

Experimental research on flutter exciatation function in turbomachineery

Aim of this project is to improve understanding of blade flutter in turbomachines. Based on experience of the project applicant at NASA GRC, a new quasi-stationary method is proposed, relying on the assumption that the dynamically induced pressure bursts due to blade oscillations are noticeably weaker than the blade load variations due to changes of the blade incidence angle. The range of Strouhal numbers, where this assumption is valid, will be verified by correlating a series of stationary measurements and CFD simulations at gradually increasing blade pitching angle with dynamic data obtained on an oscillating blade. Current modular test section will be adapted in order to allow using driving mechanism for forced oscillations of an instrumented blade cascade. This will make possible to measure unsteady pressure load on the blade surface and flow velocity in the wake. The new method will allow to simply estimate unsteady aerodynamic load on blades in turbomachines that leads to blade aeroelastic instability (flutter), which causes blade failures and severe damage in turbomachinery.

Flexible tools for strategic investments and decision-making: analysis, valuation and implementation

The proposed project aims on the contingent claim framework in connection with novel numerical tools of real options valuation to measure the embedded flexibility of various investment opportunities and to significantly improve the decision-making process. Within the project, firstly relevant real options valuation problems will be formulated by systems of governing equations or inequalities. Secondly, particular numerical tools based on discontinuous Galerkin method and wavelet methods will be analyzed, ranging from individual one-factor models to advanced multiple factor ones, including stochastic model parameters or other random variables, all with respect to various categories of real options. Simultaneously with the valuation procedure, the attention will be paid to linking properties of developed numerical schemes to the entire decision-making process from the practical and theoretical point of view. As a result, this implementation procedure will lead to proper and factual interpretation of investment, especially with respect to case studies of practical significance.

Fluid flows induced by high voltage phenomena

Flow control is rapidly developing as a key technological area relevant to several important engineering sectors (among others production of nanofibres). The main objective of the proposed project is to improve the knowledge on generation of various types of flows using: Corona Discharge (CD), Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) and Electrohydrodynamics (EHD). These mechanisms have several major advantages over commonly used methods – mainly no moving parts, reliability and high energy efficiency. Only basic scientific description of aforementioned mechanisms interacting with surrounding matter is currently available. It is thus the authors purpose to describe the phenomena in great detail and verify these theoretical descriptions via numerical simulations and practical experiments.

inherently Flexible Aerogels for energy effiCient structurES (i-FACES)

Aerogels have ultra-high nano-porous structures, which enabled them to be optimal candidates for thermal protecting materials. However, most aerogels are mechanically brittle and are not suitable for thermal insulation of structures with complex geometries where material’s flexibility is required. Rather than “inducing” the flexibility in the structure, i-FACES will produce single component “inherently flexible aerogels” based on classes of polyolefins and polyvinyls with inherent mechanical flexibility at the ambient thermal conditions. Also, advanced composites of the developed aerogels with smart functionalities based on thermochromic materials will be developed. Furthermore, recycled materials will be utilized in this research for the creation of aerogels with more ecological impact.

Innovative technology based on constructed wetlands for treatment of pesticide contaminated waters

This project will provide a means of mitigating risks to water from HCH megasites using Wetland+ and the means by which this can be replicated across the EU and globally. We will benchmark its performance, ease of deployment and sustainability against conventional approaches. While we target megasites because of their importance the approach is also down-scalable for smaller problem sites. Specific objectives are: 1) A large scale pilot Wetland+ prototype will be established at Hajek (CZ), “P1” based on already completed R&D and scale up to large pilot. P1 will exhibit system performance at a commercially relevant scale and provide an exemplar to support replication. Key performance attributes, cost drivers and wider sustainability outcomes will be monitored. Process refinement to support scale up will be developed. 2) A field pilot deployment prototype will be carried out at Jaworzno (PL), “P2”. P2 will exhibit the site specific replication pathway for this technology to other sites, taking into account site differences such as contamination context, hydrogeological conditions, microbial communities, and local resources such as sorbent materials, across the different stages of Wetland+ (abiotic redox, sorbent systems, biodegradation and wetland). 3) A specific project replication process will be established and a progression of candidate sites will be actively canvassed, with the intention of taking several through to feasibility study stage. This will be supported by targeted outreach and communication to extend the audience and potential for replication; and also a business model to service replication needs. 4) Innovations in performance monitoring to improve replication and reduce management costs will be investigated. Several routes to green monitoring and analysis will be explored, e.g. via HCH monitoring in tree biomass. 5) We will take advantage of the P1 and P2 deployments to further optimise the Wetland+ process, by developing enhanced understanding of key process stages, investigating the use of renewable energy and resources in deployments, developing process control strategies for remote locations and optimisations for downsizing and potentially extending the range of treatable contaminants. 6) Targeted communication and dissemination will ensure that the outcomes of this project are channelled to different audiences and interest groups on a global basis, but particularly within Europe.

New Algorithms for the Evaluation of Flicker in the Context of Modern Electricity Grids

The project is focused on the development of new algorithm to quantify the flicker severity from voltage measurements in electricity distribution grids. The present flicker severity metric was developed decades ago. It estimates the irritation of human observer by the light flicker of a reference incandescent lamp. The algorithm was optimized to disturbances generated by arc furnaces and adapted to the limited computational capabilities in the past. Recent fundamental changes in terms of lamp types (e.g. light emitting diode based lamps), common disturbance sources (e.g. photovoltaic installations) and instrumentation capabilities raise concerns about the suitability of the present algorithm. This project identifies the most common disturbance patterns in present electricity grids caused by modern power electronic equipment, how human observers are irritated by them considering modern illumination systems and develop new lamp and observation-irritation models. Based on such holistic analysis, a novel algorithm to evaluate flicker disturbances in modern electricity grids is developed.

Pilot verification of technologies for the removal of pharmaceutical substances from WWTPs

The subject of the project is the elimination of pharmaceutical substances that are not removed by existing wastewater treatment plants. However, a large part of these substances is adsorbed and accumulated in biological sludge. The majority of hospitals are drained to the relevant municipal wastewater treatment plants, so the project focuses on eliminating pharmaceutical substances from biologically treated wastewater. Treated wastewater always contains residual pollution by organic substances, usually at the level of min. 5%, i.e. in concentrations of tens of mg / l (determined as COD). On the other hand, pharmaceutical substances occur in concentrations of units, up to tens of micrograms per litre. Any technology that removes these micropollutants then requires a substantial reduction in the overall “background” of organic pollution, which otherwise increases energy consumption, chemicals or excipients, including adsorbents. The necessary pre-treatment is the elimination of total residual organic pollution from biologically treated wastewater, which consists mainly of products of microorganisms, non-degradable substances, metabolites that are not removed with sufficient efficiency by bioaccumulation. The aim of the project is to pilot test the technologies verified by both partners for the removal of residual organic pollution.

Research of nanofibrous materials for the treatment of glaucoma disease

Glaucoma is one of the most frequent and complicated eye diseases, which very often results in complete blindness. Most current approaches to glaucoma therapy are based on reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) using drainage implants. There is currently no reliable method of treating glaucoma on the worldwide market. There are only a few treatment options. However, problems of current implants are associated with insufficient IOP reduction, postoperative hypotony, the formation of adhesions, or progressive corneal endothelial cell damage associated with implant stiffness. The aim of the project is to examine a nanofibrous materials for the treatment of glaucoma. The research will be focus on research of intraocular nanofibrous implant from a soft, flexible, and mechanically resistant material based on biocompatible polymers. The structure will imitate the native filter organ of the eye, the trabecular meshwork. As part of the project, the flow of intraocular fluid through the nanofibrous layer will be measured using laboratory filtration equipment modified to simulate the perfusion of intraocular fluid in the glaucomatous and healthy eye. The functionality of the implant in terms of resistance to cell fibrotization will be monitored in vitro with fibroblast and endothelial cell lines. The antiadhesive properties of the material will be tested mechanically directly to the eye tissue. Implantation of nanofibrous planar material will be performed on cadaverous rabbit and porcine bulbs, including simulation of transport properties at different levels of IOP.

Sustainable Remediation of Radionuclide Impacts on Land and Critical Materials Recovery

The project “Sustainable Remediation of Radionuclide Impacts on Land and Critical Materials Recovery (SURRI)” aims to establish a multinational shared research agenda and project pipeline for addressing the challenges radionuclides pose to land remediation and materials recovery, with a particular focus on rare earth elements (REE) and other critical elements, in order to facilitate more efficient cycling and management of water, soil and material resources. The topic is highly relevant to facilitating the circular use of land, water and several key materials. Investigating the mitigation of radionuclide problems has been rather a “Cinderella” subject for land and waste management research, where the focus has been on organic and inorganic chemical contamination. However, radionuclides present widespread and difficult problems for Society at large and achieving the “Green Deal” in particular. The research concept is based on the integration of electrochemical and microbiological interventions, which can be applied, in-situ or ex-situ, to provide new tools to unlock the remediation of radionuclide affected sites, and facilitate the recovery of material resources from radionuclide-impacted wastes, and so reduce reliance on virgin (and non-EU) sources. The project is coordinated by the Technical university of Liberec (TUL, CZ) with the participation of the University of Grenada (Sp) and University of Southampton (UK). The two internationally leading partners in the field will help TUL to reach five specific objectives – to advance its research excellence in radionuclide impact mitigation, to develop a shared research vision and supporting research agenda for a virtual R&I centre, to raise the research profile of TUL staff, and to develop an international network of supporters, contributors and participants in the proposed virtual centre.

The impact of real-world ambient air pollution exposure on human lung and olfactory cells grown at the air-liquid interface

Ambient air pollution, a human carcinogen, negatively affects human health and contributes to incidence of pulmonary, cardiovascular and neurological disorders. Polluted air contains a mixture of gaseous compounds, particulate matter and chemicals bound to it. Biological impacts of air pollution are modulated by interactions between this complex mixture and the organism. In vitro studies often rely on toxicity tests of separate fractions of polluted air, yielding misleading data. We propose to investigate toxicity of real-world complete ambient air in lung bronchi and olfactory mucosa (a proxy to brain effects) tissues from healthy and diseased donors (asthma, Alzheimer´s disease). The cells will be grown at the air-liquid interface in our exposure system in the field conditions of localities differing in air pollution levels. We will analyze cytotoxicity, oxidative stress, immune response, and whole genome mRNA and miRNA expression. The results will contribute to understanding biological effects of polluted air and differences in response in samples from healthy and diseased donors.

Who is responsible here? Linking transformation of organochlorines with specific bacterial populations

Organochlorines (OCs), such as chlorinated ethenes and polychlorinated biphenyls, still constitute an important environmental problem due to actual and/or potential contamination of soils or drinking water sources. Although microbial degradation of OCs has been extensively studied, there is paucity of knowledge about the distribution of OC degradation genes at contaminated sites and their link to phylogenetic information in individual taxa. In this project, we aim to understand patterns in the distribution of vital biodegradative functions and the phylogenetic origin of bacteria that perform these functions. Specifically, our main objectives are to: reveal patterns in the distribution of selected OC degradation (bphA and rdhA) genes in indigenous communities at contaminated sites and their link to phylogeny; investigate the contribution of extrachromosomal DNA to the distribution of OC degradation genes in the environment; elucidate the capability of bacterial consortia to adapt to elevated concentrations of OCs by up-regulation and dissemination of particular rdhA genes.
