The section SDU Mechanical Engineering (ME) focuses on issues within mechanical design, structural dynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transmission and also 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 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.
In the field of materials technology focus is on fiber materials, and under this the use of plant fibres and also new methods of production.
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;
- Bachelor of engineering in Mechanical Engineering, and
- MSc in Structural Engineering, that is a Master's for both Bachelor of engineering in Mechanical Engineering and Bachelor of engineering in Civil Engineering
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.
