Fairs|Events

Due to the developments regarding the spread of the corona virus in Germany, our events and also the visits to the events of the next weeks and months are cancelled or postponed. We will inform you here as soon as the situation has changed and events are taking place again.

An important aspect of our work is the exchange with colleagues about the latest developments in research and the dissemination of our results. For this reason we are regularly attending trade fairs and conferences and present our institute at a booth or in a lecture.

We also organize our own or participate in various workshops or seminars to share our expertise with other. In cooperation with the High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation, we also frequently offer further education and training courses at our institute.

    HANNOVER MESSE 2020

    [HANNOVER MESSE cannot be held this year. The reason is the increasingly critical situation due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The next HANNOVER MESSE will take place from 12 to 16 April 2021.] HANNOVER MESSE is the world's most important industrial fair. It takes place every spring at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds, the world's largest exhibition center. We present the latest results of our research together with a joint stand of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Our spin-off fleXstructures will also be present at our stand.

    6th International Commercial Vehicle Technology Symposium

    Event Postponed! The 6th International Commercial Vehicle Technology Symposium addresses different aspects of commercial vehicle development and production. With regard to energy and resource efficiency, the topic of innovative drives with alternative fuels will be focused on. Another challenge is safety, reliability and life expectancy, which is becoming more and more relevant as part of automation. Not only is the improvement of the system components important for innovative commercial vehicles, but also new concepts for their operation must be found in order to increase productivity. Remote diagnostics or cloud solutions are also trends which must be pursued more intensively in the commercial vehicle sector. In order to improve the development and production process, it is important to use more and more powerful simulation tools and methods.

    Bruchmechanik in der Betriebsfestigkeitsanwendung

    [only available in German] Herkömmlich unterscheiden sich die Konzepte der Schwing- (Betriebs-) Festigkeit und Bruchmechanik bei zyklischer Beanspruchung darin, dass erstere Gesamtlebensdauern und Schwingfestigkeiten (Wöhlerkurven), letztere hingegen Restlebensdauern von Strukturen mit bereits längeren Rissen ermitteln. Will man das Bruchmechanik-Konzept auf den Bereich der Schwingfestigkeit ausdehnen, so müssen mehrere Probleme gelöst werden. Am Vormittag sind zwei Einführungsvorträge vorgesehen, die die wissenschaftlichen Grundprinzipien erläutern. Der Nachmittag beinhaltet einen Übungsteil, bei dem die Teilnehmer mitmilfe von Computersoftware selbst einfache Analysen durchführen sollen. An eine Einführung in das Programm schließen sich mehrere Übungseinheiten an.

    Applications of Semi-Infinite Optimization

    Applications of SIP
    © High Performance Center Simulation and Software Based Innovation

    Semi-infinite optimization, i.e., the solution of optimization problems with infinitely many constraints (SIP), has been intensively studied over the last decades. The progress of computer technology has enhanced SIP methodology significantly. On the one hand, solution methods for this problem class have been increasingly developed and refined. On the other hand, high-dimensional problems, as they often occur in practice, have become numerically tractable. As a result, the range of possible applications has evolved considerably and semi-infinite optimization has been increasingly applied to practical problems in recent years.
