And the visitors, who would like to see us from above, go up - in a helicopter!
BAM has a lot to show: For example the largest Drop test facility in the world. A 10,000-kg container for light and medium radioactive wastes will be dropped from a height of 5 metres. This Drop test is part of the prototype test for the final storage facility Konrad.
Our programme will be multifaceted and exciting:
- a car accident including a fire scenario will be simulated
- the fire-accelerating effect of pure oxygen will be shown using a model doll and
- the ignition and transformation of coal dust into a fire ball will be demonstrated.
And much more. Our partners' programme is equally spectacular:
- Linde Gas Deutschland will show 'HydroGen4' with hydrogen propulsion (the European version of Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell) and the mobile petrol station 'trailH2-Gas'.
- BAM's test site from below and above: the Promotion Association of Test Traffic Facility Horstwalde organises Offroad tours for visitors. And for those who always wanted to fly in a helicopter, inexpensive Helicopter flights will be offered.
- Work of art from sound and light: fireworks composed by pyro artist Hans-Georg Kehse will close this special day.Queries and registration:

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...
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...
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...
