Endowed since December 2009 by Airbus the new professorship ISEMP is integrated into the Bremen Center for Computational Materials Science (BCCMS) to connect industry-oriented and fundamental research.
Emphasis of our research activities lies upon development of new methods and approaches for numerical simulation of innovative materials and manufacturing processes, especially related to aviation industry. The maxim of our work is “knowledge-based“ instead of “trial-and-error“. Based upon fundamental numerical simulation and analysis employing the computer new manufacturing processes and materials are designed and optimized. The close interconnection of virtual process and material development with experimental validation receives special attention.
Our teaching activities concentrate on substantiated training of experts in the field of computer simulation being in high demand by industry. Courses are offered within the elective course “Computergestütze Materialwissenschaften (CMS)”. The focus lies upon the fundamentals of the finite element method and practice with commercial software tools (e. g. MSC.Marc, ABAQUS, DIGIMAT)
