Damage Analysis and Assessment
Determination of the reasons for fracture and
mechanical damages, analyses of corrosion damages
(e.g. defective water pipes), Examination of
compressive and torsion testing, determination of
Wöhler and creep-rupture diagrams, chemical
analyses, X-ray diffraction (up to 1000°C, texture,
phases , residual stresses) etc. etc.
Mechanical Testing of Materials under Complex
Testing, Crack Propagation Measurement,
Thermomechanical Fatigue Testing, etc.
Projects Concerning the Macroscopic and the
Microscopic behavior of Materials
research work (in form of study projects, diploma
theses and PhD theses)
reasons for damage, testing methods, material
selection, material properties etc.
