Dear reader,

in the current issue of hoch³ FORSCHEN – the science quarterly – you´ll find the following topics:

A future without lead
The Collaborative Research Center SFB 595 at TU Darmstadt has gathered a great deal of knowledge about lead-free piezoelectric ceramics. A status report.

Maths and energy policy
Supplying energy is becoming more complex and optimising the distribution grid increasingly more important. Mathematicians at TU Darmstadt are investigating the transport of natural gas.

Active participation in fire safety
They can help fire fighters orientate themselves more quickly in fires and practice for emergency situations more realistically: scientists supply the digital technology, as well as building simulations.

Acoustics at Runway West
Manoeuvring aircraft on the ground in an environmentally-friendly and fuel-efficient manner – that is the aim of the project Airport eMove. Operating noise could also be significantly reduced.
