  • Examination Frequency: Examination only within the course
  • Examination number: 10217 ("Crashloads to structures")

Evaluation of grades

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


The objective of this Summerschool is to provide the fundamentals for design strategies, optimization, testing and evaluation of crash loaded structures. The lecture combines a comprehensive theoretical introduction with direct practical application:
  • Introduction to the subject
  • Basics of impact theory
  • Material selection
  • Implementation examples from the application
  • FEA for high transient processes incl. laboratory exercise
  • Experimental crash testing incl. laboratory exercise
  • Presentation of results in a colloquium

Competencies / intended learning achievements

  • Fundamentals of short-term dynamic loading
  • Material behavior under short-term dynamic loads
  • Knowledge of energy-absorbing and crash-stable structures and their design strategies using practical examples from the automotive and aerospace industries
  • Insight into FEM calculation
