(Book written in German) Leichtbau - Prinzipien, Werkstoffauswahl und Fertigungsvarianten

Wiley-VCH, 2009

ISBN: 978-3-527-32372-2

Leichtbau ist ein umfassendes Konstruktionsprinzip, welches das Ziel verfolgt, das Gewicht bzw. die Masse von technischen Produkten zu reduzieren. Angewandt auf bewegte Maschinenelemente, Transportmittel und Sportgeräte sind die Motive dafür, zum Beispiel höhere Beschleunigungen zu erzielen, die Nutzlast zu erhöhen und die aufzuwendende Energie zu reduzieren. Das Einsatzspektrum des Leichtbaus reicht vom allgemeinen Maschinenbau (z.B. Roboter, Verpackungsmaschinen, Sportartikel etc.),  Energieerzeugungsanlagen (z. B. Windräder) über den Fahrzeug- und Flugzeugbau bis hin zur Gestaltung von Raumfahrzeugen und Raumstationen.

Die Umsetzung des Leichtbaus bedarf einer gesamtheitlichen Betrachtung der verschiedenen technischen Möglichkeiten, so ist beispielsweise die Substitution von Werkstoffen ohne Anpassung des Designs im Allgemeinen nicht effizient. Das vorliegende Buch entstand im Anschluss an das Projekt "Austrian Light Weight Structures" und will StudentInnen der Technik, MitarbeiterInnen in Forschung und Entwicklung, DesignerInnen, Entwicklungs- und FertigungsingenieurInnen, technischen VerkäuferInnen, EntscheidungsträgerInnen für Innovationen und allen, die an der Umsetzung von Leichtbaukonzepten interessiert sind, wissensbasierte Leichtbaulösungen vermitteln und sie zu deren kreativer Umsetzung anregen.

Polymer Testing

2008, Hanser, ISBN: 3-446-40900-9

The staggering growth rates in plastics production and applications increase the demand for meaningful measuring and analysis methods in polymer testing. The advances in electronic measuring techniques led to further developments in classic testing methods as well as to completely new methods. This book describes the significance of characteristic data for the quantification of the interrelationship between microstructure and macroscopic properties.
Additional information about damage processes and deformation mechanisms can be gained with the help of coupled non-destructive polymer testing methods and hybrid methods of polymer diagnostics, respectively. Numerous examples for the optimization of polymers and their composites and the assessment of component properties provide a material science focused insight into modern polymer testing.

[Translate to English:] Computational Materials Engineering - An Introduction to Microstructure Evolution

2007, Elsevier, ISBN 978-0-12-369468-3.   

Computational Materials Engineering is an advanced introduction to the computer-aided modeling of essential material properties and behavior, including the physical, thermal and chemical parameters, as well as the mathematical tools used to perform simulations. Its emphasis will be on crystalline materials, which includes all metals. The basis of Computational Materials Engineering allows scientists and engineers to create virtual simulations of material behavior and properties, to better understand how a particular material works and performs and then use that knowledge to design improvements for particular material applications. The text displays knowledge of software designers, materials scientists and engineers, and those involved in materials applications like mechanical engineers, civil engineers, electrical engineers, and chemical engineers. Readers from students to practicing engineers to materials research scientists will find in this book a single source of the major elements that make up contemporary computer modeling of materials characteristics and behavior. The reader will gain an understanding of the underlying statistical and analytical tools that are the basis for modeling complex material interactions, including an understanding of computational thermodynamics and molecular kinetics; as well as various modeling systems. Finally, the book will offer the reader a variety of algorithms to use in solving typical modeling problems so that the theory presented herein can be put to real-world use.

Kunststoffprüfung - Verfahren – Kenngröße – Anwendung

2005, Hanser Verlag, ISBN: 3-446-22086-0

 

In der Kunststoffprüfung werden aussagekräftige Mess- und Auswertemethoden benötigt - dies umso mehr, als in der Kunststofferzeugung und -anwendung enorme Zuwachsraten verzeichnet werden. Die klassischen Prüfverfahren haben sich weiterentwickelt und es wurden völlig neuartige Methoden etabliert. Dieses Buch beschreibt die Zusammenhänge zwischen der Mikrostruktur und den makroskopischen Eigenschaften. Zusätzlich werden Verfahren vorgestellt, mit denen vertiefte Informationen über Schädigungsprozesse und -mechanismen ableitbar sind. Ein besonderes Kennzeichen dieses Buches ist die Verdeutlichung der Aussagekraft von Werkstoffkenngrößen zur Optimierung von Kunststoffen und Verbunden und zur Beurteilung von Bauteileigenschaften.
