Attandance at International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition
Some days ago, Mr. Ebermann had the honor to present his research results at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE), ASME’s largest research and development conference counting more than 2400 referees. In front of the professional audience, he succesfully presented his lecture with the topic „Influence of Geometric Shape Defects on Operating Parameters in Cylindrical Journal Bearings“.
For every researchers, such international experience improves the research quality by exchanging the knowledge with worldwide leading professionals.
IKAT conference contribution at the Dresdner Maschinenelemente Kolloquium (DMK)
On 26 and 27 November 2019, the Dresdner Maschinenelemente Kolloquium (DMK) will be held at the Kempinski Hotel Taschenbergpalais in Dresden, now for the ninth time since 2003. The programme includes interesting scientific lectures on the latest research results and practical contributions from industrial applications in the fields of mechanical engineering, plant construction and vehicle construction, with particular attention to drive technology.
Our research assistant Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Christian Günther will be represented with a lecture on the topic „Investigation of the fatigue strength of highly stressed hollow shaft press-fit connections“ and will present practice-relevant results from the IGF project 19149 BR of the research association Forschungskuratorium Maschinenbau e.V. (FKM).
The detailed conference programme as well as the registration documents are available for interested parties to download under this link.
SAXSIM Student Competition
The SAXSIM Saxon Simulation Meeting will take place on March 24, 2020. Besides interesting lectures, the 12th CAD/CAE student competition will take place. The best placed will receive a prize money of 500,- € for the 1st place, 300,- € for the 2nd as well as 200,- € for the 3rd place. The first 10 places will be awarded with either a PTC Creo or a PTC Mathcad Prime student license. In addition, each participant receives a SAXSIM participant certificate.
So don’t hesitate and join in! Further information can be found here.
New member of staff to support the Fretting Fatigue research group
The further development of the professorship in connection with sharpening the focus of research is progressing. Mr. Knabner joined the team of the professorship to strengthen the research group on fretting fatigue, also known as friction corrosion or friction fatigue. After successfully completing his studies, he was now looking for new challenges. Over the next few years he will focus intensively on the phenomenon of strength reduction through friction loading and the influences of prestressing and slip amplitude. The whole team is looking forward to his cooperation and will support him as much as possible.
