On Friday, 9th September, Jan Kubiczek and Carl Rupp accepted the robots ordered for the LESSMAT project at DanRobotics. During the so-called FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) the general functions of the system were tested. The focus here was on the functionality of the gripping device of the handling robot as well as the adaptive seam tracking of the welding robot. A geometric inspection of the weld seam is provided by the camera integrated in the system.
In the LESSMAT project, structures are optimized in terms of their weight. Automated manufacturing techniques are to be investigated with the aid of the robots.
Am 17.08.2022 wurde im DLR_School_Lab an der TUHH ein Ferientag für Kinder angeboten. In einer kleinen Vorlesung erklärte Prof. Sören Ehlers (wissenschaftlicher Leiter des DLR_School_Labs) mit eindrucksvollen Beispielen den interessierten Kindern die Relevanz von energieeffizienten und sicheren Schiffen. Anschließend konnten die Kinder in kleinen Gruppen spannende Versuche im Windkanal und im Wasserbecken des Schülerlabors durchführen, den großen Forschern im Labor des Instituts für Konstruktion und Festigkeit von Schiffen über die Schulter schauen und im Flugsimulator des DLR_School_Labs über Hamburg fliegen.
This year, the annual International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE) is held in the Kongress Center in Hamburg, Germany, from June 5th to 10th. Conference chair, Prof. Sören Ehlers, welcomed the more than 750 participants..
Since the beginning of 2022, Prof. Sören Ehlers is the Director of the DLR Institute for Maritime Energy Systems. Congratulations! In addition to this position, he will continue to be a professor at our institute and will also remain the scientific director of the DLR School_Lab.
In this new video, Prof. Sören Ehlers (scientific director of the DLR School_Lab at TUHH) explains why ships collide, what can happen and how engineers are able to improve the collision safety of ships. More information about the DLR School_Lab at TUH can be found here.
Enjoy this Podcast by Bärbel Fening in cooperation with the German Association for Marine Technology (GMT). In the first episode, Dr. Walter Kühnlein (chairman of GMT) and Prof. Sören Ehlers (vice chairman of GMT) talk about what marine technology is, what is so fascinating about it, and the impact of marine technology for the future.
We are happy to announce that our colleague Leon Kellner successfully defended his doctoral thesis “Analyzing the complexity of ice with explainable machine learning for the development of an ice material model”.
As an expert on ships in ice, Franz has been nominated as Chairman of the Specialist Committee on Ice at the 30th International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC). In the working group, the scientist will work on the development of uniform standards and guidelines for ships in ice for the next three years.
