Shape Optimization of an Electron Gun

S-DALINAC (Superconducting-DArmstadt-LINear-ACcelerator) is a superconducting electron accelerator at TU Darmstadt, running since 1991. It was initially constructed as a twice-recirculating accelerator with a maximum energy of 130 MeV in continuous wave (cw) operation. In 2016 it has been converted into a thrice-recirculating accelerator, see here. For the next upgrade an […]

Yield Estmation Using Surrogate Modelling in Industry

Most manufacturing processes suffer from small deviations, which may lead to rejections of some products due to malfunctioning. In this context, malfunctioning is commonly understood as violating a given performance feature specification. In order to quantify the impact of the uncertainty one defines the yield as the percentage of realizations […]

Bembel Project – A Boundary Element Method Based Engineering Library

The boundary element method (BEM) or method of moments (MoM) is a common approach for the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) in engineering applications such as acoustic and electromagnetic scattering problems in homogeneous media. It is accepted in industry and there are many free and proprietary implementations. Bembel’s logo […]

Efficient numerical quadrature for the boundary elements method with application to electrical machines

Nowadays, the design with regard to efficiency and reliability is a major task in the development of electrical machines. Therefore, numerical simulations play an increasingly important role. Due to many favorable properties, the finite element method (FEM) is well established for simulating low-frequency electrical engineering applications, e.g. with nonlinear material […]

TRR154: Mathematical Modelling, Simulation, and Optimization for Gas Networks

Natural gas plays an important role in Germany’s strategy for the transition of energy production to renewable sources and the simultaneous exit from nuclear power, since it is readily available in large amounts and relative clean compared to coal. Large fluctuations in renewable energy production and regulations of the European […]
