Order in Air Vortex
TU-scientists develop solutions for the precise simulation of turbulences
Turbulence makes life difficult for the designers of cars or aircrafts. It cannot be simulated with absolute precision. Martin Oberlack, head of Institute of Fluid Dynamics wants an original solution to the problem.
Ice in the Air
What causes ice formation on aircrafts during flight?
Markus Schremb and Daniel Kintea of the TU Darmstadt are carrying out research into causes of ice formation on aircraft during flight. Their experiments and realistic mathematical models are aimed at the minimization of risk and costs.
EU in Global Dialogue
Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at TU Darmstadt and JGU Mainz
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence “EU in Global Dialogue” (CEDI) was designated in July 2015 by the European Commission to support an ambitious programme of research, teaching and outreach activities. The Centre is directed by Jean Monnet Professor Dr. Michèle Knodt (TU Darmstadt) and co-directed by Jean Monnet Professor Dr. Arne Niemann (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz) and thus contributes to the Strategic Partnership between the two Universities.
The Rhine-Main Universities alliance
GU Frankfurt, TU Darmstadt, and JGU Mainz intensify their collaboration
The presidents of Technische Universität Darmstadt, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, and Goethe University Frankfurt have signed a cross-border framework agreement intended to promote further collaboration between the three universities.
Access to the elementary resources required for life
Graduate programme for research on structural changes in African megacities
The TU Darmstadt and the Goethe University Frankfurt are carrying out research into structural changes in African megacities in a joint graduate programme.
Energy-efficient particle accelerator
Nuclear physics centre for the next generation of scientists
From 2016, the German Research Foundation (DFG) will be supporting a new research training group in nuclear physics at TU Darmstadt. Its collaboration partner is the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz. The research project runs until the end of 2020 and has a budget of 4.7 million Euros.
Reaching for the stars – with success
Darmstadt physicist Almudena Arcones receives € 1.5 million grant from the EU
Almudena Arcones, since 2012 junior physics professor at the TU Darmstadt and head of a junior group together with the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research, is to receive a € 1.5 million grant from the European Research Council for the next five years.
Campus orientation for refugees wanting to study
TU Darmstadt offers support for the first steps at the university
Darmstadt, “City of Science”, has already been allocated over 1,500 refugees and more will come – including young people who would like to start or continue studying for a degree at TU Darmstadt. TU Darmstadt offers them introductory information.
New Phenomenon of Radioactivity
Scientific journal "Nature" publishes experimental proof
Physicists at the TU Darmstadt have succeeded in observing an extremely rare radioactive decay for the first time ever. The unusual thing about it is that this so-called double gamma decay of an excited nucleus state, which represents a higher order process, takes place although the first order process is not prohibited by the conservation of energy and momentum laws or quantum-mechanical selection rules.
Determining ion beam effects to greater precision
Researchers conduct high-res analyses on lesions in tissue
A precise understanding of how ion beams affect biological tissue is of great importance for both radiotherapy applications and the assessment of radioprotection risks, e.g. to astronauts on long term missions in space.
Who is driving then?
Scientists from Darmstadt about opportunities of autonomous driving
Professor Hermann Winner and Walther Wachenfeld from the Automotive Engineering research group illustrate the opportunities, risks and challenges of autonomous driving.
On the same wavelength when it comes to urban planning
Yungsheng Su, urban planer from Shanghai, visits Department of Architecture
The long-lasting relationship between TU Darmstadt and the Tongji University in Shanghai has now become a strategic partnership. This allows student and double degree exchanges, collaborative research, travelling scholarships – and invitations to visiting professors. You only have to look at Yungsheng Su, who is currently staying in Darmstadt, to understand how beneficial it is to have visiting professors.
Success in international Design Competition
Students of TU Darmstadt win Design Excellence Award in Singapore
TU Darmstadt wins overall design excellence award and a honourable mention in “Designing Resilience in Asia 2015 – International Design Competition” at the National University of Singapore.
