Bachelor & Master Theses

We welcome Bachelor and Master thesis students in our group! We supervise students in Mechanical Engineering, as well as students of the Mechanics and Computational Engineering study areas, or other related fields of study.

Thesis topics can be closely related to our main research focus areas as described on our Research page , or could also cover other areas of computational mechanics and engineering, as well as advanced and additive manufacturing.

If you are interest in writing your theses with us, please do not hesitate to contact one of the members of the group or directly.

  • Topologieoptimierung mit immersierter, randkonformer isogeometrischer Analyse

    Topology optimization with immersed boundary conformal isogeometric analysis



    The aim of this thesis is to develop a novel approach for topology optimization of linear elasticity problems in solid mechanics using immersed boundary conformal isogeometric analysis (IBC-IGA). In particular, the explicit description of the boundaries of the optimal topology as spline curves shall be combined with the boundary-conformal quadrature method. In this way, it will be possible to represent complex geometries with relatively few design variables and facilitate efficient gradient-based design optimization.

  • Masterthesis, Advanced Design Project (ADP), Advanced Research Project (ARP), Research Assistant

    In this work, we will develop the chemo-mechanics formulation for thin structures like beams. For this IGA solid beam element will be considered and coupled with the ion diffusion equation.
