Metal­lic Ma­ter­i­als: Sensor sys­tem for ma­ter­i­als sci­ence


  • Dr.-Ing. Timo Möller

Learn­ing Ob­ject­ives

  • Knowledge: Students will be given an insight into sensory science for materials science.  
  • Skills: The students are able to create test rigs for new material analyses from existing sensor systems. This is complemented by the skill of subjecting these sensor systems to a measurement capability analysis as part of a test setup. This ensures that the test setup can reliably implement the required material analysis.
    In two seminars, practical examples are presented and carried out with the students, which should enable them to plan and implement smaller measurement systems or test setups themselves at some point.
  • Competences: The students are able to design new sensor technology for material systems and their analysis. They can then apply these in the context of damage analyses or use them in the context of suitable test strategies, which are taught for example in the modules Design of Experiments and Reliability or System Reliability in Mechanical Engineering or Theoretical Damage Analysis.
