Perspective view of material SLA
  • Development of new analytical methods for the calculation of the panel instability load and for the frame design of frame stringer stiffened cylindrical shell structures used in aerospace vehicles. The research aims for the extension of the Weight-Strength-Curves for frame stringer stiffened shell structures.
  • Derivation and Implementation of reduced order models for the integration of elasticity into the multibody simulation (MBS) under the condition of real time calculations

About Mr. Krause

Max Krause studied Mechanical Engineering at the RWTH Aachen University from 2010 until 2016, specializing in aeronautical engineering. In the meantime he worked as a student assistant at the Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design and from 2013 till 2014 he was an intern at the MTU Maintenance Hannover. Since 2016 he is working as a researcher at the SLA. He has acquired a profound knowledge in the field of the derivation of structural models for the analytical analysis of highly complex lightweight structures. Regarding his work at the SLA he is responsible for the courses “Lightweight Design of Aerospace Structures“ and “Finite Element Methods for Lightweight Structures” and works in the field of reduced mechanical models where he analyses the design of the circumferential stiffeners of frame stringer stiffened shell structures of launch vehicles and the calculation of the panel instability load of such structures.
