  • Examination Frequency: each semester
  • Examination number: 10272 ("Durability Load Data Analysis")
    Oral (30-45 minutes) or written (60-90 minutes) examination

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • Load data and durability
  • Data reduction in time- and amplitude range
  • Dimensioning against variable operating loads
  • Derivation and synthesis of assessment bases
  • Configuration of test scenarios
  • MBS modeling and methods of load data analysis
  • Invariant system excitations
  • from section loads to local variables
  • FE-based fatigue calculation

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Students will be able to
  • model the usage variability of vehicles or comparable technical systems,
  • derive assessment bases for commercial vehicles,
  • deduce load assumptions for subsystems and components,
  • assess the significance of testing and calculation for system dimensioning
  • describe the most important load data analysis methods and use them in practice
