Aerospace Engineering & FEM

Basic research in the field of aerospace engineering and finite element methods.

Since its founding years, the ISD worked at the forefront of developments in finite element analysis research. Today, this heritage manifests itself in ongoing research efforts regarding the basis of this highly successful method.

This research includes spring cell lattices as substitutes for continua as well as investigating the application of the FE² method for the Theory of Porous Media (TPM²), where an iterative finite element problem is solved.

Recently, model order reduction techniques have become a flourishing field as well, where classical techniques as well as newly developed machine learning algorithms aim towards reducing the simulation cost of highly complex system.
