Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Mecha­ni­cal Sci­ence and Engi­nee­ring Insti­tute for Solid Mecha­nics, Chair of Mecha­nics of Mul­ti­func­tio­nal Mate­ri­als

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Work­ing field:

nume­ri­cal ana­ly­sis of the swit­ch­a­bi­lity of active hydro­gel com­po­site mem­bra­nes in the con­text of the fil­tra­tion of bio­lo­gi­cal cells wit­hin a DFG rese­arch pro­ject. The fol­lo­wing objec­tives should be pur­sued: Model­ling and Simu­la­tion of the active mecha­ni­cal beha­vior of thin struc­tu­res, microf­lui­dic flow through the device and the inter­ac­tion of bio­lo­gi­cal cells with the mem­brane. The model­ling should be per­for­med on the con­ti­nuum scale, the nume­ri­cal solu­ti­ons should be based on the Finite Ele­ment Method. Acqui­red results should be com­pa­red with expe­ri­men­tal evi­dence.
