Learning goals and contents

Learning Goals:

Attending this course enables the students to:

  • accomplish experimental, numerical, design related as well as analytical or theoretical tasks in a scientific framework
  • perform a correct evaluation of the obtained results
  • document and present their results adequately
Content At the ITS students elaborate topics, which are arranged each semester by the scientific stuff, like the topics for Bachelor’s or Master’s theses. Thus, the topics listed below only have exemplary character:
  • Conceptual design for the precise positioning of a camera using a robot arm
  • Enhanced image processing with Python
  • Investigation of fuel atomization using novel mathematical methods in MATLAB®
  • Development of an evaluation routine for the determination of the wetted surface from SPH particle data
  • Development of a method for quantifying the particle disorder in SPH simulations
  • Modeling and calculation of test bench components for the calculation of heat transfer and temperature profiles using finite element methods
  • Expansion of the simulation model for the investigation of spray evaporation with OpenFOAM®
  • Control the setting of an audible levitator with LabVIEW
Prerequisites: none
Workload: regular attendance: 42h
self-study: 78h
