Research Interests

I concentrate on Computational Aeroelasticity (CAE) including aspects of the following research topics:
  • Aircraft Aerodynamics and Aeroelastics
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Computational Structural Dynamics (CSD)
  • Flow Grid Deformation Methods
  • Aeroelastic Coupling Concepts and Algorithms

Student assistant positions (HiWis) and theses (Studien-/Projekt-/Diplomarbeiten)

At the moment, I am looking for HiWis keen to participate in my research activities and those pursued by our CAE group (Dr. Carsten Braun, Georg Wellmer, Bae-Hong Chen, Lars Reimer) at CATS resp. LFM. You should be interested for instance in Aircraft Aerodynamics, Continuum Mechanics, Numerical Algorithms for Fluid and Structural Dynamics Analysis, Finite Element Methods, Parallel Computing, etc. Please take a look at the following document for a more detailed job description:

Student assistant positions (HiWi) in the context of "Computational Aeroelasticity"


Current offers for theses are:

Contributing to aerothermoelastic simulations of rocket nozzles - Introducing the transient heat conduction problem in the aeroelastic coupling process

Aeroelastic simulation of the HIRENASD wing-winglet configuration

Contributing to aeroelastic simulations of aircraft configurations with control devices - Utilising the CHIMERA method within the aeroelastic simulation package SOFIA


But do not hesitate to ask for some other available theses projects not published here yet!

Additionally, please take a look at the job and theses offers of my colleague Georg Wellmer within the scope of CAE, too. Currently he offers the following thesis or student assistant job:

Alternative methods for the transfer of aeroelastic coupling data over non-matching meshes - Implementation and investigation of applicability
