Strain behavior of bio-inspired light weight gears

In the course of material- and resource-saving product design gears with bio-inspired leight weight structure are being investigated for the first time. These gears offer the opportunity to specifically damp high loads and to reduce stress peaks. This requires a measuring system that uses welded-on strain sensors to record and evaluate the occuring stresses. These strain sensors are currently not sufficiently characterized in order to be able to make a statement about the actually occurring strain states on the basis of the measurement signals.

The aim of a bachelor- or masterthesis is to investigate this relationship in practical experiments. In addition, the aim is to identify and quantify possible cross-sensitivities of the sensors.

Contents of the thesis:

  • Optimization of a test rig for the investigation of strain sensors
  • Execution of experimental investigations
  • Evaluation and interpretation of measurement results

Your profile:

  • Interest in metrological topics
  • Pleasure for experimenting
  • Knowledge of Matlab is an advantage
  • Independent way of work
