Course: Ma­ter­i­als un­der Com­plex Load­ing Con­di­tions


  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. T. Niendorf

Learn­ing ob­ject­ives

  • Knowledge: Students will learn the relevant elementary processes that characterize material properties at high temperatures, under cyclic loading and under complex thermo-mechanical loading. They will also be familiar with all the techniques being used to enhance mechanical properties of components subjected to corresponding complex loads.
  • Skills: Students will learn to assess stress conditions and derive measures for strength increase, boundary layer optimization as well as corrosion prevention.
  • Competencies: The students are able to assess components with regard to their load-bearing capacity. They will also learn to design the components for advanced applications.. In addition, the students will gain the knowledge for a suitable material selection.


  • Assessment and quantification of complex thermo-mechanical load-time histories as well as environmental conditions
  • Elementary mechanisms of deformation
  • Performance of tests under thermo-mechanical load
  • Material selection under given loading conditions
  • Surface modification
  • Damage and failure mechanisms


  • Block

The course is only open for students who have not yet attended the lecture "Schwingfestigkeit und Randschichtoptimierung"!
