EXPERTISE Kick-off Training
From the 8th to 12th of January 2018 the Kick-off Training Event of the European Training Network EXPRTISE took place at the Chair of Applied Mechanics. EXPERTISE will contribute to train the next generation of mechanical and computer science engineers with a common basic knowledge on the challenges, the paradigms, the technologies and the methodologies in the field of nonlinear structural dynamics of turbomachinery and High Performance Computing. For the Kick-off Training all 15 early stage researchers employed by the network gathered together with their supervising professors for a set of lectures about advanced modeling of friction contacts, identification techniques for contact interfaces, structural dynamics of turbine components and parallel computing. The lectures were held by the supervising professors representing the University of Oxford, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, Imperial College London, Politecnico di Torino, Technical University of Munich, Middle East Technical University, Techicka Univerzita Ostrava, Mavel AS, University of Stuttgart, Baercelona Supercomputing Center and Cray UK Limited.
