Based on design theory, method based product development, machine elements, mechanical engineering informatics, biomechanics and tribology, the institute's research groups work on applications in their specific areas of materials handling, logistics, aviation gearboxes, rehabilitation technology and sustainable product development/Ecodesign. This results in synergy effects and collaborative R&D projects. In these, numerical methods (finite element methods, multi-body simulation, bulk material simulation, tools for life cycle assessment etc.) are used and partly further developed. With the help of self-developed test benches (gear test benches, bulk material test benches, wheel-rail test bench etc.), components and machines are experimentally analyzed. In rehabilitation technology, human body functions are analyzed and improved.
