About the Author

Jiri Tuma graduated from the Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic, in 1970 and completed his doctoral studies in 1977. After graduation, he became a researcher in the field of control systems at a research institute and in 1988 began working in the R&D department of an automotive company (Tatra Trucks). He was a member of the team for the introduction of HCR gears in the transmissions. That time, Tatra entered among the top global manufacturers of this type of gears. In 1995, he joined the VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering where he became a full professor in 2001. He gives lectures and does research in the field of control systems, signal processing, active vibration control and machine diagnostics. He is the author of more than 200 publications, including a book on signal processing (in Czech) and a chapter of Crocker’s Handbook on noise and vibration control.
