Priority Programmes

Priority programmes are supra-regional cooperation programmes which are generally funded for a period of six years. The following programmes were not all initiated by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, but all of them involve institutions of the Faculty. (DFG)

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 1676

Dry Metal Forming - Sustainable Production through Dry Processing in Metal Forming

Place and duration:

Place:Bremen
Duration:

2013-2019

A central objective of the Priority Programme 1676 was to come closer to the goal of a lubricant-free factory by creating new lubricant-free forming processes and adapting relevant technologies.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 1748

Reliable Simulation Techniques in Solid Mechanics. Development of Non-standard Discretization Methods, Mechanical and Mathematical Analysis

Place and duration:

Place:Essen
Duration:

since 2014

The scientists of the SPP 1748 have set themselves the goal of establishing a new quality in the field of non-conventional discretisation methods. This is the basis of the work programme of the SPP: The development of modern non-conventional discretization methods, their mathematical analysis and the investigation of their application limits by means of suitable benchmark problems.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 1959

Manipulation of matter controlled by electric and magnetic fields: Towards novel synthesis and processing routes of inorganic materials

Place and duration:

Place:Jülich
Duration:

since 2016

The Priority Programme 1959 aims to provide a rational, comprehensive knowledge based on experimental evidence and complementary numerical simulations for intentionally using electromagnetic energy to manipulate matter in metals, intermetallics, oxide and non-oxide ceramics as bulk, thin or thick films.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 2006

Compositionally Complex Alloys – High Entropy Alloys (CCA-HEA)

Place and duration:

Place:Bayreuth
Duration:

since 2017

The aim of this Priority Programme is to develop CCA and HEA with outstanding mechanical properties or displaying unusual phenomena, which cannot be obtained in conventional alloys, or be explained by current textbook-level theory. Within this programme, alloys with five or more elements are targeted, each having a concentration between 5 and 35 at. %.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 2013

Targeted Use of Forming Induced Residual Stresses in Metal Components

Place and duration:

Place:Garching
Duration:

since 2017

Therefore, the objective of the priority program is to regulate and control internal stresses by utilizing forming technologies in order to achieve a positive impact on relevant characteristics of components manufactured by forming processes.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 2074

Fluidless Lubricationsystems with high mechanical Load

Place and duration:

Place:Kaiserslautern
Duration:

since 2018

In this priority programme, the friction and wear mechanisms caused by transfer layer formation in tribological systems when lubricated with solid lubricants are to be investigated.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 2086

Surface Conditioning in Machining Processes

Place and duration:

Place:Karlsruhe
Duration:

since 2018

The aim of the priority programme is to develop dynamic process control systems for machining processes with main mechanical, thermal and, if necessary, chemical effects by combined use of ideally in-process or in-line applicable sensor technology with process knowledge prepared in the form of models, which allow defined surface layer conditions in metallic components to be set for improved component reliability and service life.

PRIORITY PROGRAMME 2100

Soft Material Robotic Systems

Place and duration

Place:Garbsen
Duration:

since 2019

The SPP 2100 “Soft Material Robotic Systems” has set itself the task of actively meeting the challenges of this paradigm shift and developing novel approaches for the development of soft robots.
