Analysis and Optimization of Polymer Spin Packs

Spin packs are widely used for the production of synthetic fibers and nonwoven materials. In a typical spin pack polymer melt enters through a small inflow tube. Within a cavity the polymer is distributed over the whole cross-sectional area of the device before it passes several layers of filters. Finally, the material is pressed through […]

Detecting cell motion during early embryogenesis

by Lukas F. Lang (RICAM, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria) l…@ricam.oeaw.ac.at Our main motivation is to estimate cell motion in time-lapse volumetric microscopy images depicting fluorescently labelled cells of a live zebrafish embryo. It has been only recently possible to obtain high-resolution observations of biological model organisms such as the zebrafish. Increasing spatial and temporal […]

Fraunhofer MINT-EC Math Talents Programme

This summer 23 students will be invited to attend the closing workshop of the Fraunhofer MINT-EC Math Talents programme in Trippstadt, Germany. MINT is the German for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The MINT-EC is a network of schools in Germany with a focus on STEM. During the week-long residential workshop, the final of a series […]

Competence Centre for Mathematical Modelling in STEM-Projects in Schools (KOMMS)

What is KOMMS? KOMMS, the competence centre for mathematical modelling in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) projects in schools, was founded by the mathematics faculty at the University of Kaiserslautern with the aim of consolidating and improving the teaching of mathematical modelling in schools.  This is achieved through the provision and coordination of school […]

The RTG “Stochastic Models for Innovations in the Engineering Sciences”

My name is Anne Meurer and I’m a PhD student at the Mathematics Department of the University of Kaiserslautern. I’m part of the DFG Research Training Group 1932 “Stochastic Models for Innovations in the Engineering Sciences, an interdisciplinary graduate school from mathematics and engineering sciences. The research is divided into four projects, with different technical […]

An internship project on how to prevent and mitigate the risk of credit default on a retail bank

My name is Nuno Aires and I completed my master degree in Applied Mathematics to Engineering and Finance at the Engineering School, Polytechnic of Porto (Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto), Portugal. As a student of this master degree I had the opportunity to make, as my final project, an internship at a Bank. This […]

Co-simulation & UQ within the SIMUROM project

In many applications, coupled problems appear very naturally. For example, Fig.1 depicts a field/circuit problem, where a transformer can be modeled by a partial differential equation (PDE) and an electric circuit subsystem, which can be modeled by differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The coupled system is a PDAE [5]. A semi-discretization in space yields a system […]

The DAAD Program “Mathematics in Industry and Science” in Kaiserslautern

I am Chathuri Samanmali Fernando from Sri Lanka and completed my master degree at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT), Finland. My sole ambition was to acquire a doctoral position which can lead to pursue research oriented profession to my academic career. To fulfil my wish, I have discovered that, TU Kaiserslautern in Germany, which is […]

Optimizing Production Processes of Nonwovens with FIDYST

Spunbond, meltblown, and airlay processes can be optimized by using FIDYST, the Fiber Dynamics Simulation Tool developed by the Department Transport Processes (TV) of the Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern – a software that simulates fibers driven by air and their contacts with machinery parts of the plant. By evaluating the CV values of the mass regularity […]
