Bild zum Projekt  Experimental Characterization of Mechanical Properties of Rubber

Bearbeitung:

ext. M. Dämgen, R. Schuster (German Institute of Polymer Systems (DIK))

Kurzbeschreibung:

The large strain mechanical response of rubber materials is investigated by experimental techniques. For a collective of well defined rubber systems stress softening, quasi-static hysterics, are studied by tension and compression tests. Additional experiments are performed regarding relaxation behaviour, anisotropic damage of the filler network, temperature dependency etc.

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, Dipl.-Ing Raffeala Chiarello

Kurzbeschreibung:

A finite element approach for the simulation of the dynamic behaviour of tires rolling on rough roads for the car indoor noise prediction is presented. Based on a detailed finite element model valid for the nonlinear stationary rolling analysis a modal tire model to be coupled with a total vehicle dynamics simulation approach has been developed, where special care is taken on the physical consistency.

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, M.Sc. Anuwat suwannachit

Förderung durch:

This work is supported by German Ministry for Economics within the “Leiser Straßenverkehr 2” program

Kurzbeschreibung:

The transient dynamic response of rolling tires, which is a major source of traffic noise nowadays, is excited from the tread impact and the road surface texture. A multi-scale approach is introduced in order to investigate the behaviour of tread rubber in contact with rough road surface at a sufficient small length-scale, which leads to the vibration of the overall structure.

ALE-interface coupling for multiscale analysis of treaded tires in rolling contact

Bild zum Projekt ALE-interface coupling for multiscale analysis of treaded tires in rolling contact

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, Dip.-Ing. Raffaela Chiarello, Dipl. Ing. (FH) Ole Stegen

Kurzbeschreibung:

The Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formulation is well established for the finite element simulation of stationary as well as transient dynamics rolling contact phenomena. The method enables mesh refinements in the contact zone and a time independent formulation of stationary rolling. The inconvenience for the simulation of rolling tires is the incorrect treatment of the tread blocks due to the non axisymmetric geometry.

Constitutive modeling of rubber behavior in a broad frequency domain

Bild zum Projekt Constitutive modeling of rubber behavior in a broad frequency domain

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, M.Sc. Anuwat Suwannachit

Förderung durch:

This work is supported by German Ministry for Economics within the “Leiser Straßenverkehr 2” program

Kurzbeschreibung:

Mechanical response of technical rubber is usually described by damage and hysteresis behaviour under quasi-static cyclic loading conditions, while dynamic stiffening and viscous effects are predominant for high frequency analysis. For the computation of rolling tire behaviour with questions regarding safety, comfort and sound radiation a constitutive description incorporating all of these effects is needed.

Finite Element Evaluation of Primary Stability of Teeth Implants

Bild zum Projekt Finite Element Evaluation of Primary Stability of Teeth Implants

Kurzbeschreibung:

Usually dental implants are loaded after the healing period which is generally 2 to 3 months after the insertion of the implant. During the healing period the patient is dependent on liquid diet. Therefore implant technologies are heading towards implants that can be loaded directly after insertion. The aim of this project is to compare the primary stability of two dental implants, one standard model and one model with a bar for rotational stabilization.

Image reconstruction / finite element modelling

Bild zum Projekt Image reconstruction / finite element modelling

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, M.Sc. Andre Lutz

Kurzbeschreibung:

Due to the complex structure of bone it is very difficult to get geometry data for the generation of simulation models. In addition it is impossible to get patient-specific geometry data for patient-specific treatment. With this program it is possible to extract geometry data from CT datasets and generate finite element models. Furthermore it is possible to map bone density information on the created finite element model for the purpose of calculating statically equivalent load sets.

Investigations on the Numerical Solution of the Fokker-Planck Equation with Discontinuous Galerkin Methods

 

Bearbeitung:

Prof.Dr.-Ing. U.Nackenhorst, Dipl.-Ing. F. Loerke

Kurzbeschreibung:

As the probability density distribution is an appropriate measure for comprehensive description of stochastic processes, the derivation and solution of transport equations for the probability density requires particular attention. Examination of nonlinear dynamic systems under uncertain excitation or with uncertain parameters leads to stochastic equations of motion.

We seek for multi-scale methods with physically consistent coupling of the molecular dynamics (MD) method and the finite element methods (FEM), and apply it to contact problems. The material near the contact region will be modelled in MD models so that complicated behaviours such as dislocations, initiation of plastic deformations and crack propagation can be captured.

Studies on bone remodelling theory based on microcracks

Bild zum Projekt Studies on bone remodelling theory based on microcracks

Bearbeitung:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Udo Nackenhorst, Dipl.-Ing.(FH) Dieter Kardas

Förderung durch:

This work is supported by the Research training group 615 of the DFG (German Research Foundation)

Kurzbeschreibung:

Inside the cortical section of every bone, a remodelling cycle, including the resorption and build up of bone matrix, takes place. This phenomenon lasts for the life time. Research groups nowadays agree on the theory, that bone cells called osteocytes, lying inside the bone matrix, have the function as a sensor and are responsible for the remodelling behaviour – but still there is disagreement regarding to what is stimulating the cells.
