27/28th International Conference
Engineering Mechanics 2022

Prague, May 13, 2022

Dear colleagues,
First, I would like to thank everyone again for her/his active participation in the 27/28th ENGINEERING MECHANICS 2022 Conference in Milovy. I hope you enjoyed the meeting.

During last four days, 118 experts from the Czech Republic and abroad have had the opportunity to enjoy two keynote lectures and 82 contributions in three parallel sections. Out of 22 posters, 14 posters entered the competition of the general manager of ZDAS. The main prize has been awarded to the poster Optimization of the slay mechanism of the weaving loom DIFA by Bc. Tomáš Koňařík, MSc. from VÚTS, a.s., Liberec.

Thanks to all of you, our main scientific objective to share novel scientific ideas and projects has certainly been successful. Science communications very much live or die according to what the participants are willing to share and I really appreciate everyone's contribution.

To remind the event, some photos have been posted in the gallery. If you should have any further requests or suggestions about the conference, or if you want to share your pictures, please do not hesitate to contact us.

My special thanks are addressed to the young authors. Scientific work is not easy, often tedious and painful, but don’t lose your hearts. Let the thoughts of one of the greatest thinkers of the world inspire your continuous effort:

  • Mechanics is the paradise of the mathematical sciences because by means of it one comes to the most beautiful fruits of mathematics.
  • Just as eating against one’s will is injurious to health, so studying without a liking for it spoils the memory, and it retains nothing it takes in.
(Leonardo da Vinci, 1452-1519)

In this place, I would like to greatly thank to all, who contributed their effort to the conference success. These are namely

  • my closest colleague Cyril Fischer, PhD. for most of the preparation work,
  • managing director of ZDAS Pavel Cesnek, MSc., MBA. and technical manager Radek Vlček, MSc. for favour, noticeable support and great collaboration,
  • Michael Formánek, MSc. for excellent management of the cooperation between ZDAS and the organizing committee,
  • the both ladies, Ms. Viktorie Fischerová and Mrs. Libuše Mokrá, who welcomed you at the registration desk and solved every single problem which had appeared,
  • all the assistants in the lecture halls for smooth course of the presentations,
  • all the colleagues of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, CAS, who participated in preparation and during the conference,
  • manager of the hotel Devět skal, M. Jeřábek and all the personnel of the hotel for very kind and co-operative support,
  • and to all others who has contributed to the success of the conference.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the conference EM2022 is over. However, the next year’s conference EM2023 in Milovy is going to be held in May, 15-18, 2022. The event will be organized by the Institute of Thermomechanics under the guidance of Igor Zolotarev, PhD. We invite you to follow the further announcements. With my best regards and wishes for an inspiring year.

The objective of the 27/28th conference is to provide a forum for researchers, industry practitioners, engineers and postgraduate scholars to present and discuss the state-of-the-art in all branches of mechanics, this particularly in connection with problems investigated in the Czech Republic. The sessions of the Conference will be held at the Hotel Devět Skal in Milovy, situated in the beautiful countryside of the Žďár Highlands.

The annual EM conference promotes the exchange and dissemination of knowledge and experience relating to the most recent results and advances in a wide range of topics in the field of Engineering Mechanics, including but not limited to:

Fluid Mechanics
Fracture Mechanics
Mechanics of Solids
 Reliability of Structures 
  Technological Processes 

Proceedings of previous conferences have been included in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index of the Web of Science, we hope that this tradition will continue.
