Structures and Traffic Constructions

The main activities of the Constructions and Transport Structures research group are focused on the research and development in the field of load-bearing building structures and transport structures. The research and development concentrates on new structural and material designs of structural elements and components of load-bearing building structures, as well as modern constructions of transport structures. Emphasis is placed on advanced building structures and technologies in terms of their improved reliability, durability and economy during the entire life cycle, with regard to mutual relation and connection of monitored and solved problems. An integral part is also experimental verification of load-bearing structures and systems, as well as the application of modern simulation methods.

"Cooperation with AdMaS Centre staff has significantly contributed to the optimisation of the design of construction measures that are effective and reliable over the long term during the design of static reinforcement and rehabilitation repairs for a range of tunnel structures, e.g. the Husovický Tunnel in Brno, the Hřebečský Tunnel, and the Střelenský, Velký Prštický, Domašovský and Bohuslavický railway tunnels.""

Ing. Martin Šafařík, Head Structural Engineer at the company’s Design Department, and Ing. Jiří Štěrba, Ph.D. Executive Director, LARUMO SERVIS, s. r. o.

"Thanks to cooperation with the AdMaS Centre, our company was provided with specifications for optimum and effective construction measures after the discovery of aluminous cement within the load-bearing structure of a historic and protected cultural monument belonging to Baťa in Mariánské Lázně. The Centre has also helped with determining methods for the evaluation of the current state of similar structures owned by that company within the Czech Republic."

Ing. Ladislav Huryta, Executive Director, HURYTA s.r.o.

"Thanks to cooperation with the AdMaS Centre, which is equipped with the most advanced technical equipment and bases its work on the newest scientific findings, we were capable of producing the optimum structural design measures for load-bearing structures during the revitalisation of existing construction projects. These include Pavilion B of the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Tereza Nováková Grammar School in Brno, and the degasification building on the premises of SYNTHOS Kralupy a.s."
