Models of formation and spread of fire to increase safety of road tunnels
Modely vzniku a šírenia požiarov na zvýšenie bezpečnosti cestných tunelov
Annotation: The project is a significant contribution to increase of safety of road tunnels using computer simulation of firespread based on modelling of complex processes related to fire by CFD technology. The aim of the project is todevelop a series of computer simulations of fire scenarios suggested by customer organization in two roadtunnels realized on high-performance computational infrastructure at Slovak Academy of Sciences. Research ofproper method of parallelisation of simulation calculation with the aim to achieve substantial speedup ofcalculation without negative effect on the calculation accuracy, research on the impact of ventilation onstratification of smoke in tunnel tube and realization of experiments in two road tunnels in situ are the main partsof the project. Within the project, Tunnel Traffic and Operation Simulator (SRT) – a unique facility at University ofZilina will be extended by visualizations of smoke stratification in virtual tunnel tube in SRT in the case of firedeveloped by computer simulation on the basis of CFD models. The great benefit of this project will be alsoevidence of tunnel incidents and risk analysis according to achieved data. Implementation of the project willinterconnect the knowledge, experience and researches of research teams of participating partners equippedwith unique modern infrastructures obtained by ERDF EU with the aim to create innovative solutions to enhancethe tunnel safety.

Modelling and computer simulation of fires and their consequencies
Modelovanie a počítačová simulácia požiarov a ich dôsledkov
Annotation: Fires belong to emergent events which cause large material damages, damage of environment and often cause destruction or threat of important parts of infrastructure, buildings and their facilities, and threat of human lives anf health. Therefore, research in the field of fire prevention and safety, which leads to the development of information technologies and systems capable to predict the course of fire in different environments and conditions and model their consequences, belongs to acute and important research problems of all-society significance. Basic research in the suggested project is oriented on formulation of new scientific knowledge in the field of computer simulation of forest fire spread and spread of automobile fires and fires in selected types of structures and modelling their consequences.

Modified discrete cosine and sine transforms (MDCT and MDST)
Modifikované diskrétne kosínusové a sínusové transformácie (MDCT a MDST)
Annotation: The submitted project proposal is focused to the Preparation of the monograph prelimininary entitled: Modified discrete cosine and sine transforms (MDCT and MDST): General properties, Fast algorithms and Applications. The monograph will be devoted to the theory of MDCT and MDST transforms, fast algorithms for their efficient computation, methods to their integer approximation for lossless audio coding, and using MDCT and MDST transforms in practical applications for compression and decompression of digital audio signals in the MPEG audio coding standards as well as commercial audio codingsystems.

Personal motor car fires, fires computer simulation and their experimental verification
Požiare osobných motorových vozidiel, počítačová simulácia požiarov a ich experimentálne overenie
Annotation: Burning of motor cars in open, partly open or closed spaces is one of the serious problems, which has not been solved satisfactorily yet. The importance and hazard of this problem increases with the number of produced and sold motor cars. Concentration of motor cars in housing estates or near business and shopping centres and stadiums is a great potential risk of chain car fires. The aim of the project is examination of the course and expansion of individual phases of burning and measurement necessary input data for computer simulation system to model the behavior of specific types of car fires. This makes it possible to check the tactics of fire-fighting and to test the optimal layout of effective fire bariers, ventilation systems in buildings, tunnels, garages, as well as location of escape areas in buildings, etc.
