Process standardization for the verification of acoustic emission sensors

The aim of this work is to identify and implement a practical procedure for verification/function control of AE sensors for easy use in the laboratory and in the field. This procedure should provide stable test results and represent a portable solution. The main focus is on experimental investigations and simulation-based selection and validation of the design of the propagation and coupling medium.

Cryogenic hydrogen cooling system for a novel electric propulsion system for air mobility applications   Thermo-mechanical material characterisation and modelling

The aim of the K-AXFLUX-H2 project is a complete virtual representation of the cooling process in an axial flux drive for aircraft using cryogenic hydrogen. For the first time, hydrogen will not only serve as an energy store for the operation of a fuel cell, but its latent heat storage properties will also cool a new type of axial-flux electric motor and thus increase its efficiency. The project of the University of Augsburg pursues the objectives of material development and iterative topology optimization for the implementation of the stator geometry on the one hand, and on the other hand focuses on thermo-mechanical modelling and simulation of the stator in addition to experimental characterization to determine the thermal-mechanical properties of selected materials at cryogenic temperatures. In order to define suitable materials for use at cryogenic temperatures, as well as adapted manufacturing processes, a comprehensive understanding of materials in a wide temperature range is necessary. The material behavior is always directly dependent on the geometry of individual components. The mapping of the interaction between thermal and mechanical stresses as well as heat flows that form are of crucial importance for the envisaged development process of a stator cooled with cryogenic gases/liquids. With the help of the finite element method (FEM), structural mechanical considerations can be considered in combination with other physical effects, such as heat transfer and heat conduction. Thus, the influence of thermal effects on the mechanical behavior of components can be evaluated with simulative means. Not only thermal residual stresses, but also the temperature-dependent electrical and magnetic properties play a role here. The thermo-mechanical simulation aims at optimizing the thermal management of electric motors.

Multi-scale image correlation for robotic component inspection

The global goal of the project is the realization of a robotassisted component inspection. Digital image correlation is used to measure the deformation. In order to dynamically change the resolution during the inspection, a multi-scale stochastic pattern is tested. Furthermore, the robot-based digitization of objects is implemented, which is the basis for the trajectory calculation during the inspection.

Analysis, characterization and optimization of the washing
process of 3D printed metallic objects

The aim is to optimize the washing process of green parts in metal based additive manufacturing. For this purpose, it should be recorded how the triggering process takes place over time and which processes take place in the component. This creates the potential to optimize this process technically, economically and in terms of process time.

Performing in-situ pull-out tests on shape memory wire/polymer composites

Performing in-situ pull-out tests allows the observance of the interface while it is under load and locating the beginning of the failure procedure. This will help to understand the mechanisms of load transmission and  failure and will help to increase the adhesion. Therefore, transparent matrix materials are necessary to observe the interface through the matrix material using light microscopy and/or scanning electron microscope.
