Department of Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics


World of constant motion

The Department of Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of the Czech Technical University in Prague is one of leading Czech scientific and research institutions in the field of continuum mechanics. Besides lectures in bachelor, master and doctoral study programmes the department is engaged above all in research and development in the field of applied mechanics of fluids (typically in aeronautical and automotive applications), heat transmission (in power engineering and automotive applications), thermodynamics (namely in cooperation with the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague) and in the issue of supersonic flow.

The staff of the department has participated in a number of research projects funded both from public sources (namely grants from national and European programmes) and from private sources within the scope of cooperation with the application sphere. This cooperation with industrial partners has been elevated from a domestic level to an international one in recent years. The department thus ranks in many fields on an at least European level.
