Experimental parameter study on different approaches to verify dynamic contact forces due to (singular) impulse excitations

Master Thesis

Ref.Nr. C_044


Your duties and responsibilities:

  • Literature review of experimental approaches (direct/inverse methods) to verify dynamic contact forces for impulsive excitations
  • Planning and implementation of coordinated experimental parameter studies (strongly related to available MKS-simulation models)
  • Construction of a simple mechanical test-bench
  • Detailed analysis of the recorded measurementdata and derivation of empirical parameters
  • Cross comparisons of the approaches and results

 What we expect from you:

  • Field of study: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics or similar
  • Basic knowledge of dynamic processes and signal processing
  • Conscientious, responsible, qualified and motivated students
  • Working languages German / English

What we offer:

  • Working in interdisciplinary teams with considerable expertise
  • Professional and academic supervision
  • Remuneration
