Main re­se­arch

Re­se­arch areas of bime in­clude de­ve­lop­ment and ope­ra­tion of pro­duc­tion plants, struc­tural me­cha­nics and pro­cess ori­ented tech­no­logy de­sign. Re­se­arch ac­ti­vi­ties wi­thin the range of struc­tural me­cha­nics con­cen­trate on fun­da­mental me­cha­nical de­sign of pro­duc­tion plants. An example is the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the in­flu­ence of war­ping caused by tor­sion on the struc­tural be­ha­viour of ho­mo­ge­nous and multi-la­mi­nated ge­neral load-bea­ring cha­rac­te­ri­stics. Fur­ther­more, stu­dying the brea­king be­ha­viour of samples and con­struc­tion units gives an un­der­stan­ding of brea­king pro­ce­dures, al­lo­wing the de­sign of high-risk con­struc­tions.

The re­se­arch area pro­duc­tion plants deals with the con­struc­tive and func­tional de­ve­lop­ment of cut­ting and for­ming ma­chine tools and their mo­dules and/or com­ponents. With the focus on their fun­da­mental me­cha­nical de­sign and con­trol en­gi­nee­ring, spe­cial at­ten­tion is given to ma­chines and plants for high speed pro­cesses. High ac­cu­racy and/ or high pro­duc­ti­vity are ob­jec­tives which are fol­lowed in this field.
