Miroslav Vořechovský serves as a Fulbright Honorary Ambassador at Brno University of Technology.
Research activitiesDr. Vorechovsky focuses on challenging research topics listed bellow. For more information see his Curriculum Vitae. Also the sources of sponsorship and current scientific projects are named therein. Nonlinear fracture mechanics with focus on stochastic aspects. Size effects, scaling in structures.
Behavior of fibers, yarns and fiber-reinforced composites. Efficient methods of reliability engineering, mathematical statistics (random variables, random fields and processes, extreme value theories) connected with nonlinear fracture mechanics methods (study of behavior of quasibrittle materials/structures).
Stochastic optimization techniques, structural safety and reliability, stochastic computational mechanics, Monte Carlo simulation techniques, genetic algorithms.
Programming and software development.
