Brno Ph.D. Talent

Martina Kratochvílová

Robotic Fabrication of Complex Free-form Concrete Structures

Lector: Dr.techn. Ing. Jan Podroužek

Institution: Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering

Field: Konstrukce a dopravní stavby


About the project

The project deals with numerical modeling of structures for 3D printing, their optimization and homogenization, and introduction of this method into common construction practice. Optimization will be carried out on 3 levels - topological optimization (shape level), definition of 3D infill paterns and optimization of wall composition. Another aim of the project is to verify the possibility of using secondary materials.


Why science?

In ten years I would like to be a senior researcher and combine the development of my education and career with family care.


What do I like most about Brno

I have lived in Brno since I was born and I like the fact that the city is big enough for a highly qualified person to find a suitable job and to be able to further educate, and at the same time small enough to be fast in nature. Another advantage is that even the center is not crowded with tourists.
