Mechanical Engineering

Welcome to SDU Mechanical Engineering - a section for research and education at the Faculty of Engineering

The section SDU Mechanical Engineering (ME) focuses on issues within mechanical design, structural dynamics, topology optimization, fluid mechanics and heat transmission and materials technology. 

Research in  structural dynamics  include mathematical modelling, condition monitorering,structural health monitoring  and modal analysis of  supporting structures in e.g. windmills and offshore constructions.  

Research in topology optimization focuses on optimzation of cooling og electronic components and metal casting processes. 

Research in fluid mechanics focuses  on experimental and numeric fluid mechanics (CFD) within environmental improvement  such as reduced use of pesticides and in catalysts for  diesel engines. 

Research in the field of  materials technology focusses is on  design and simulation of smart materials,  and on new ways  and methods to produce composite materials.  

Research in maritime technology focusses on sustainable opertion of vessels and naval constructions with particular focus on energy efficiency, vibartion and fatigue.

Within  mechanical design research focuses on construction projects both i collaboration with the industry and internally  at TEK, primarily with SDU Robotics, SDU Health Informatics and Technology, SDU Energy Informatics and SDU UAS Centre. 

 The SDU Mechanical Engineering section is affiliated with   two programmes;

The section contributes to the education in both programmes and also to a number of other programmes, in which mechanics and  materials technology are part of the programme education.
