Materials & Forming Technologies

Pendulum testing device Impetus II (©4a Engineering GmbH) for the determination of dynamic material properties

The research of the Materials & Forming Technologies group focuses on modelling nonlinear material behaviour in different simulation areas such as crash and sheet metal forming. They include, for example, the modelling of production processes of components and the effects of various strains on the material or the component. The group also focuses on application-friendly material characterization for highly dynamic processes.
