Portrait of the Institute


The Institute for Machine Elements and Systems Engineering researches the fundamental structural and tribological behavior of machine elements and depicts them in experimentally validated model descriptions. These model descriptions are used to analyze and design the function, loss and noise behavior of entire technical systems with a focus on the drive technology for wind turbines and mobile work machines. The results are computational and design concepts for specific technical solutions, including providing evidence of the required system properties on large test beds. Numerous experiences with such model-based solution ideas through to the conception of configurable products enable the MSE to research and develop methods for model-based systems engineering as a central element of future industrial product development processes.
