Road into laboratory: Users discuss biaxial fatigue-testing for car and truck wheel

In the past, service life tests for vehicles or individual components required test drives on the road lasting several days. Today, thanks to cutting-edge testing facilities, a few hours in the laboratory is enough. The Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF has specialized in recent years in the area of wheel testing and approval. Thanks to its diverse development and testing activities the institute has carved out a position for itself as a technology leader. The UC 13, Users Conference on Biaxial Fatigue Testing for Wheels and Wheel Hubs held on November 8 provided an opportunity to find out more about the latest developments in this area of Technology.

The wheel-related components of the chassis, i.e. wheels, wheel hubs and wheel bearings, are safety-relevant components subject to high levels of stress. Given...

#Berlin5GWeek: The right network for Industry 4.0

Individual mass production, condition monitoring of production facilities and modular production lines are some advantages that digitalization of industry brings with it. The basis is an interconnection that is secure, robust and fast. The 5G standard, the standard that follows 4G/ LTE, will play a central role. Emphases of this year’s #Berlin5GWeek will therefore lie on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) as well as the dynamic programming of software-based 5G infrastructures. From the 6th to the 10th of November, international experts from science, industry and politics will discuss the basic technological requirements of the future network and possible application scenarios.

The connected factory of the future: A product blank be it for a sneaker or a car, is associated with an administrative layer. The administrative layer...

3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation

"Virtual Environments for Testing of Automated Vehicles": This central idea of the 3rd Symposium on Driving Simulation on 9 November 2017 in Braunschweig says it all. For the third time, decision-makers and experts from the automotive and commercial vehicle industry, research and IT will be discussing topics related to driving simulation. This year's focus will be on the future challenges in the area of virtual development, testing and validation of systems for autonomous vehicles. The 3rd OpenSCENARIO User Meeting and a visit to the driving simulator of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) will take place on 8 November 2017 in the run-up to the symposium.

Increasing demands and growing cost pressure in the automotive industry make it increasingly necessary to transfer test scenarios with multiple variants to a...

ASEAN Member States discuss the future role of renewable energy

Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam: some 630 million people live in the ten member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Between 2007 and 2015, there was enormous growth in the economy here, by 5.3 percent per year on average – and the demand for energy is also rising as a result. How to deal with this is shown by the fifth ASEAN Energy Outlook, which the Fraunhofer ISI and the ASEAN Centre for Energy presented during the Ministers and CEO dialogue at the 35th ASEAN Ministers on Energy Meeting in the Philippine capital of Manila at the end of September.

The 5th ASEAN Energy Outlook (AEO5), like its 2015 predecessor, was accompanied scientifically by Fraunhofer ISI and developed by the ASEAN Centre for Energy,...

Climate Engineering Conference 2017 Opens in Berlin

On Monday evening the Climate Engineering Conference (CEC17) was opened in Berlin by Mark Lawrence, Scientific Director at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS). The international conference explores the potentials and risks of possible measures to intervene in the climate system. Over four days, experts from academia, political institutions, and civil society are engaging in intensive debates about the study, risks, and governance of geoengineering.

The international community has set itself ambitious climate goals in the Paris Agreement. But how can those goals be achieved? The Intergovernmental Panel on...

Conference Week RRR2017 on Renewable Resources from Wet and Rewetted Peatlands

At the International Paludiculture Conference – Renewable Resources from Wet and Rewetted Peatlands (www.rrr2017.com) 27th–29th September in Greifswald – scientists, professionals and politicians discuss how to tap the potential of peatlands in order to protect the climate, introduce alternative agriculture and save substantial socio-economic costs.

Wet peatlands protect the world’s climate as gigantic carbon sinks. Drained peatlands, in contrast, globally emit over 2 Gt of carbon dioxide per year. To...

“Lasers in Composites Symposium” in Aachen – from Science to Application

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are becoming more important for a wide variety of industries, e.g. automotive engineering. The need for efficient manufacturing and processing methods for these composites is increasing. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT invites interested parties to the “Laser in Composites Symposium” in Aachen on November 22, 2017 in collaboration with the experts of the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL). Experts will inform industrial users in lectures and guided tours about the developments and applications in laser material processing of FRP. The symposium will also provide a forum for an exchange between research and industry.

Although the laser processes for lightweight construction applications developed in research have already been tested, the step towards industrial application...

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
