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.

End of the year 2018
Once again an eventful year is drawing to an end for the professorship of Machine Elements and Product Development. A lot of important scientific and industrial projects could be finished and new projects could be acquired in 2018. Furthermore the chair of the professorship was successfully transferred from Prof. Leidich to Prof. Hasse. New exciting fields of research and new colleagues enrich the established research.
