Jointly with Oerlikon AM GmbH and Linde, the Chair of Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics investigates novel manufacturing processes and materials for additive 3D printing. The cooperation is supported by the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy. In addition, two new H2020-MSCA-ITN actions are being sponsored by the European Union. The ‘UCOM’ project investigates ultrasound cavitation and shock-tissue interaction, which aims at closing the gap between medical science and compressible fluid mechanics for fluid-mechanical destruction of cancer tissue. With ‘EDEM’, novel technologies for optimizing combustion processes using alternative fuels for large-ship combustion engines are developed.
In 2019, the NANOSHOCK research group published various articles in the highly-ranked journals ‘Journal of Computational Physics’, ‘Physical Review Fluids’ and ‘Computers and Fluids’. Updates on the NANOSHOCK open-source code development and research results are available for the scientific community: www.nanoshock.de or www.aer.mw.tum.de/abteilunge/nanoshock/news.
A highlight in the field of aircraft aerodynamics in 2019 was to contribute establishing a DFG research group (FOR2895) on the topic ‘Research on unsteady phenomena and interactions at high speed stall’. Our subproject will focus on ‘Neuro-fuzzy based ROM methods for load calculations and analysis at high speed buffet’.
