Special Projects


  • Rhine bridge Breisach
    Design for reconstruction an restauration of the steel-bridge made in 1962. Evaluation of weldability, control and supervision of welding.
  • Rhine bridge Speyer
    Analysis of the heating of the bridge during the buildin of melted asphalt and its effect on the stability during the building activity.
  • Simulation of manufacturing process
    Programing of a script for the simulation of the manufacturing steps bending, welding, post treatment and afterward the numerical analysis of the ultimate load.
  • Calculation of residual stresse on large structures
    Dimension of assembley ca. 4 x 4 x 4 m with wallthickness in the range of 200 mm, multilayered welds,
    Material: austenitic steel and low alloyed steel
    Processes: Cladding, stress relief annealing, welding
  • Analysis of weld distortion on large structures to evaluate the weld distortion during the manufacturing
    Dimension of assembley ca. 2,5 x 4,5 m with wallthickness in the range of 10 mm, multilayered welds,
    Material: aluminium
    Processes: predeformation of the construction, preheating, arbitrary filling of weld layers
  • Analysis of weld distortion on large sturctures to evalate different variants of manufacturing
    Dimension of assembley ca. 2,5 x 4,5 m with wallthickness 2 mm - 3 mm, single layered welds.
    Material: austenitic steel and low alloyed steel
    Processes: GMAW, beam and spot weld
  • Blast technic for art design
    Mentoring in blast technic for the project work " Explosive" from Christina Becker, Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe: Manufactoring of a pice of furniture by free blasting of steel sheets.
