New employee at the professorship
Since February 1th 2019 the team in the experimental field of the Professorship Machine Elements and Product Development has been strengthened by the appointment of Anika Bahnert. This provides the additional capacity to cope with the expansion and redesign of the test site in the coming months. We are looking forward to a good cooperation and wish much success and creativity.
The 11th SAXSIM will take place on 26.03.2019 in the main lecture hall of the Chemnitz University of Technology. The program includes more than 30 lectures, the awarding of the 11th student competition, the popular Mathcad-HandsOn-Workshop as well as for the first time an ANSYS product training and the possibility to visit selected test fields of the Chemnitz University of Technology. Furthermore, there will be numerous interesting lectures on the topic of simulation.
If you are interested, you can register here until March the 15th, 2019.
Dissertation on the topic „Increasing the elastic potential of press connections by plastic conditioning of the joining partners“
On the 20th of December 2018 Dr.-Ing. Mario Schierz successfully defended his dissertation. His topic „Increasing the elastic potential of press connections by plastic conditioning of the joining partners“ sets new standards in the field of designing highly stressed shaft-hub connections. The available calculation method allows for the first time a targeted plastic conditioning of these machine elements to increase their elastic transferability. In the lively discussion, Dr. Schierz was able to convincingly demonstrate that he has undoubtedly achieved this goal in the case of the investigated press connections. In the subsequent evening event, the discussions were then continued until deep into the night, with the technical diction increasingly being modulated.
