Uni Erlangen     Chair of Applied Dynamics 




The Chair of Applied Dynamics (LTD - Lehrstuhl für Technische Dynamik) started in April 2011 at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

Part of LTD is the Independent Junior Research Group in the DFG Emmy Noether Programme Simulation and optimal control of the dynamics of multibody systems in biomechanics and robotics that has been at the University of Kaiserslautern during 2009-2011.

Research topics of the group are situated in the field of computational mechanics, in particular dynamics and applied mathematics with focus on the development of efficient techniques for the simulation and optimisation of dynamical and control systems with applications to modern engineering and biomechanical questions. The considered problems come from elastodynamics, flexible multibody dynamics (representing e.g. parts of the human body in everyday movements and sports or industrial and medical robots), coupled and multirate systems. A goal is the simulation, optimisation and optimal control of their dynamics. Thereby, the further development of corresponding numerical methods is likewise important as the modelling of the nonlinear systems.
