Ing. Tomáš Vlach
In the UCEEB I am a team member in the lab for creating and testing of composite materials. During my PhD studies at the Faculty of Civil Engineering CTU in Prague I am interested in using of textile reinforcements in high performance concretes and its numerical modeling. I deal mainly with experiments design and determination of mechanical properties of composite materials, such as fiber reinforced polymers (FRP), technical textiles, high performance and ultra-high performance concretes (HPC and UHPC), textile reinforced concretes (TRC), fiber reinforced concretes (FRC) and composite bamboos. I enjoy the originality of each experiment and the necessity of good coordination. In my work, I take advantage of my designing practice gained in small design offices and ateliers, where I use to work under the supervision of an experienced designer.
