The research world continues to grow together internationally, with English being the common lingua franca. In order to further improve the quality of the English scientific publications at conferences and in journals, the professorship Machine Elements and Product Development is now supported by Dana Ebermann from Prof. English Language & Linguistics.
Dr. Flavio Campanile joined the team of the Professorship Machine Elements and Product Development on July 1. Mr. Campanile has already worked in numerous stations of the scientific and research community – for example at the German Aerospace Center and at the ETH Zurich. With his expertise in the field of compliant mechanisms, Mr. Campanile will give important input to the research group at the Institute.
The expansion of the experimental field is progressing. The testing possibilities of the research group shaft-hub-connection are extended with a rotating bending test bench. It is made possible to determine the material fatigue strength, which is necessary for the proof of strength. So far these quantities have often been determined by converting values from static tests using standard characteristic values. The appliation-oriented testing enables to utilize the performance reserves for real operating conditions.
After many years of active cooperation at the professorship Machine Elements and Product Development Mr. Schiemann leaves us. The successors trained by him follow in great footprints and take over the tasks in the areas of rolling bearing creeping and tribology. At the farewell party, many memorable moments of the past years were evaluated once again with cakes and barbecue food.
We thank Mr. Schiemann for his support and wish him all the best for the future.
