International scientists get to know the Federal Cluster of Excellence in Chemnitz

18.10.2013
On 24. and 25. October 2013 the “International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) for Lightweight Structures” takes place - presentation from representatives of the industry and researchers

One year after the start of the Federal Cluster of Excellence “Merge Technologies for Multifunctional Lightweight Structures” at Technische Universität Chemnitz Professor Lothar Kroll, CEO, and Dr. Jürgen Tröltzsch, COO, invite to the first international conference on 24. and 25. October 2013 in Chemnitz.

The “International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) for Lightweight Structures” takes place at the Virtual Reality Center from the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU), Reichenhainer Str. 88.

About 200 visitors from over 10 nations are expected to the conference at Chemnitz. Greeting words come from representatives from politics, industry and academia. The main focus of the IMTC lies on four themes:
- Session 1 „Composites“, Chair: Professor Bernhard Wielage
- Session 2 „Metal-based hybrids“, Chair: PD Welf-Guntram Drossel
- Session 3 „Lightweight structures“, Chair: Professor Thomas Lampke
- Session 4 „Smart systems integration”, Chair: Professor Thomas Geßner
“It is to highlight the worldwide unique combination of different academic disciplines in key enabling technologies within the Cluster MERGE. The importance is shown by the balanced mixture of speakers”, says Dr. Tröltzsch. Apart from presentation from representatives of the industry, the researchers of MERGE show their latest works and results in their specific research area. The IMTC 2013 is an intersection for the experts from academia and industry with regard to resource efficiency in mass production of hybrid technologies and lightweight structures. Professor Kroll emphasises, that “by merging individual material-specific manufacturing processes for the mass production of lightweight structures, considerable savings of energy and material will be attained”.

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
