The research group Engineering Design for Transport and Conveying Systems

is engaged with design principles in mechanical engineering and with material handling as technical as well as logistical tasks.

Experimental research is done in our laboratory as well as in the field. For this purpose comprehensive measurement equipment is available.
Especially the equipment for surface pressure measurement (FUJI pressure measuring film and Tekscan System) shall be pointed out.
With these devices static as well as dynamic measurements can be performed.

Theoretical research, simulation and interpretation of measuring data can be conducted with considerable computer equipment.

Further key aspects of activities are: rail vehicles, ropeways and supporting structures.
