On a personal note, I would like to thank my parents for their continuous support throughout my studies, for which I am extremely grateful. In addition, I would like to thank my partner Alana for her permanent emotional support.

Also would like to thank all the professors at the Institute of Aerospace Engineering and the institute head, prof. Ing. Antonín Píštěk, CSc., for creating a great learning atmosphere, which motivated me a lot during my study years there.

Foremost, I would like to thank my supervisor doc. Ing. Josef Klement, CSc. for his support, valuable advices and the fact that he has always been exceptionally helpful.
