Determination of characteristic values of fiber composites at
cryogenic temperatures

The research project aims to extend an existing testing setup for the determination of characteristic values of fiberreinforced plastics under cryogenic temperatures. The determination of characteristic values in the context of fracture mechanics under mode I and mode II loading represents a central challenge, which is intended to complement the already existing approaches for the determination of compression, tension and shear properties. Likewise, an approach for testing bonded joints at cryogenic conditions has to be developed.

Robot-based materials testing

The aim is to develop a testing methodology for the experimental determination of stiffness and strength characteristics of fiber reinforced polymers using a 6-axis robot system. In order to perform a robot-based material characterization, different measurement systems are required. Of central importance is the recording of forces and movements. Therefore, an intermediate goal of this work is to merge the forces and moments applied by the robots with an external strain measurement system based on digital image correlation. The validation of the testing strategy is done with the help of a universal testing machine and numerical methods.

Condition monitoring of maching processes

Machining is a process step that is of central importance for product quality. However, the expectations placed on conventional machining are constantly increasing. Tool life should be increased, contours milled more precisely and faster, tool load capacity increased, and downtimes minimized. In order to achieve significantly higher efficiency, classical approaches to machine optimization (design, tool selection) have already been exhausted in some cases and are no longer effective enough on their own to ensure the competitiveness of companies.

Development and didactic preparation of a thermal touchpad for demonstration purposes

Thermometry is used in the field of sensor technology for monitoring mechanical components, such as gears. Within the project "Knowledge Transfer Region Augsburg (WiR)" this technology is prepared for a broad spectrum in an understandable way.

Condition monitoring of gearboxes using acoustic methods

Gear wear or failure  often is the limiting factor of technical systems. Modern condition monitoring systems are applicable for lifetime extension and targeted repair, which are investigated within the project „Knowledge Transfer Region Augsburg (WiR)“.

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.
