Characterization, evaluation, and control of the reliability of mechanical and smart systems

  • inspection-free – Increasing the corrosion resistance of steel wheelsets by inductive surface hardening
  • stochastic sensitivity analysis and design of experiment
  • reliability of smart systems
  • welded joints with martensitic chromium steels
  • control of uncertainty
    • use of smart structure approaches
    • state control of load-bearing structures
    • investigation of the effect of variable processes on a system’s behaviour
  • long-term behaviour of structure components
