Research Division Machine Design - Overview

The Machine Design Division teaches and works scientifically on the basics of mechanical engineering and thus deals with the design and calculation of the basic elements of machine design. A main field are power transmissions for various fields of application.

The laboratory of the institute enables experimental investigations of transmissions like measurements of wear, acoustical characteristics and power tests. Vibrations and sound emissions are a special focus. The target are low emissions, based on acoustical measurements including sound pressure and sound intensity.

Transmissions for Aviation is another Topic. After a complete redevelopment of the laboratory, a new universal test bed for aviation gears will be installed and put into service. Cooperations with well known companies working in the field of aviation will lead to practically relevant education. Special courses are held for the design of pneumatically driven systems.
