Deformation measurements of lightweight gears
The main objective of this work is to validate the design guidelines of first lightweight gear demonstrators by means of static and dynamic load tests. For this purpose, deformation measurements on statically or dynamically loaded lightweight gears are to be... » more
Partial automation for calibration routines in the wind tunnel
Flow field measurements of all three velocity components in wind tunnels are needed for the optimization of rotor blades for wind energy and of propellers for the electrification of aviation. Therefore, stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (sPIV) measurements... » more
Flowmeasurement in grinding gap
Metalworking fluids (MWFs) are used in grinding to reduce the heat generation of the abrasive process and to prevent thermal damage such as grinding burn. The heat transport of an active liquid cooling (forced convec-tion) is fundamentally known, but the cooling... » more
Surface characterization of gear teeth by means of lateral scanning white light interferometry (LSWLI)
In order to comply with climate protection targets, the trend in industry is developing toward resource conservation and energy saving. In the case of gears, this trend can be implemented through constructive lightweight design, but also through optimization of... » more
Speckle roughness measurement on anisotropic surfaces
"Speckles" are points of light that are created when rough surfaces such as paper, wallpaper or metals are illuminated with a laser. By statistically evaluating the speckle pattern (e.g. on the basis of its contrast), the roughness and other surface parameters can... » more
Deflection measurement of the forming stylus during incremental sheet metal forming
Incremental sheet metal forming is a more economical production process than conventional deep drawing for the manufacture of customized sheet metal parts in small quantities. In this process, a forming stylus forms the sheet metal over a counter die, and thereby,... » more
