Welcome to the Chair of Dynamics and Mechatronics (LDM)

Recent technologic advances involve multidisciplinary development and entails collaboration across disciplinary borders.  The development of new technical systems requires an interdisciplinary integration of different approaches from different disciplines. Therefore, Mechatronics is a key technology of the 21st century.

In research and academics, we are primarily concerned with modeling, simulation, reliability, optimization, operation, condition monitoring including diagnosis and prognosis of mechanical, mechatronic and intelligent technical systems. The Chairs’ main areas of research are nonlinear dynamics, contact mechanics, friction, condition monitoring, data analytics, reliability engineering, sensors, actuators and ultrasound technology. In these areas our research is driven by sustainable approaches.

This results in a broad range of academic and research opportunities with fascinating new tasks to be met every day. A few of these applications are presented on the pages of this website.

Please feel free to contact us if we can provide you with further information.

Neue Veröffentlichung im Forschungsfeld Condition Monitoring und Predictive Maintenance

 |  Lehrstuhl für Dynamik und Mechatronik (LDM)

Neue Veröffentlichung in Proceedings of the Asia Pacific Conference of the PHM Society mit dem Titel „Expert-Informed Hierarchical Diagnostics of Multiple Fault Modes of a Spacecraft Propulsion System”. Das Paper beschreibt unsere Methoden zur erfolgreichen Diagnose eines Raumfahrzeugantriebssystems im Rahmen der Asia-Pacific Prognostics and Health Management (PHMAP) Data Challenge 2023. Bei der Challenge belegten wir den siebten Platz von ca. dreißig Teams mit einem Gesamtergebnis von 93.08 %.
