“A heat exchanger is a device intended for exchanging energy between systems and buildings of various parameters. An example of a small heat exchanger is a radiator in a central or floor heating system which delivers heat from warm-water, low-pressure circulation to the environment of a residential apartment containing another medium – air.”(1)

A group of scientists from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at BUT headed by Ing. Jan Jedelský, PhD. has developed a realistic model of a part of the human respiratory tract intended for studying the deposition of aerosols deposition and how best to manufacture them.

Vehicle spring suspensions have limited service-life yet simultaneously have a crucial effect on driving characteristics of a car. Therefore shock absorbers have to be checked regularly. Scientists at BUT know a way how to test shock absorbers using a sensor on an independent stand which is connected to an ordinary PC without any a special converter.

Cooperation between Ing. Martin Lux, Ing. David Paloušek, Ph.D. and Ing. Jiří Rosický, CSc. has opened up new opportunities for people requiring manually adjustable prosthetic fingers. This finger prosthesis, developed as part of a doctoral thesis and which is protected as a utility model (link), allows users to once again grip objects in maximum comfort. 

Bundles of hollow organic fibres are used as heat-exchange surfaces in heat-exchangers and as semi-permeable membranes in microfiltration devices. A heat-exchanger that uses hollow fibres enables a large heat-exchanging surface to be concentrated in a small volume.

What are the advantages of a pressure reservoir for a mono-tube hydraulic shock absorber compared to the current technical solutions? Shock absorbers available on the market are only adjustable using controllers located on the body of the absorbing device or on an external reservoir.
