From Dec. 01 to 02, the LWT was involved in this year's MatCalc workshop in Vienna with two participants. MatCalc is a software package that can be used to calculate microstructure evolution and phase transformations in metallic systems. During the workshop, problems of the participants in different simulation projects were discussed and solutions were developed together.
This year, the doctoral seminar of the LWT took place at the Sportschule Wedau in Duisburg. In addition to an intensive professional exchange, which set new incentives for future research projects, there were joint activities such as football, basketball and volleyball.
On 28.10.2022 the fifth Young Materials Researchers Day took place, where there was the opportunity for a lively exchange between the participating PhD students and postdocs of the Materials Research Department. The LWT was represented with a talk and 2 posters.
In September, the 63rd Tribology Conference of the "Gesellschaft für Tribologie" (GfT) was held in Göttingen. Over three days, more than 80 lectures were held on the topics of lubrication, machine elements and surface technology. The LWT was also represented at the symposium with a presentation on the subject of tribocorrosion resistance of mechanically and chemically stressed surfaces as part of a research project.
A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES
A virtual tour through the different laboratories and rooms of our chair as well as the associated halls and the equipment located there can be found here.
The research focus of our chair lies in the new and further development of metallic materials with the inclusion of the relevant processes.
SUSTAINABLE AND INNOVATIVE
Our concept is characterized by innovative research under the responsibility for sustainable development and responsible use of energy and resources.
The LWT is staffed by a diverse team of PostDocs, PhD students and student employees, supported by technical and administrative staff.
