BST/Research/Key Aspects

Key Aspects

  • Fatigue and durability assessment of components in machinery and rail vehicles
  • Fatigue analysis considering fundamental aspects such as design and loading, material and manufacturing
  • Development of design methods based on experimental, analytical and numerical analyses
  • Development and implementation of modern lightweight design principles
  • Analyze at multiple scales, from small samples to individual components to entire assemblies
  • Development and validation of advanced simulation concepts such as finite element analysis and multi-body simulation
  • Stiffness, degradation, and failure studies of individual components and entire systems
  • Design and construction of special test benches, measurement and control technology, as well as carrying out operating load measurements and evaluating the measured data
  • Rail vehicle technology, such as the overall wheel/rail system, rubber/metal components and brakes
