Helical milling of bore holes in Ti6Al4V parts produced by selective laser melting with simultaneous support structure removal

Wolfgang Hintze, Robert Schötz, Jan Philipp Mehnen, Lars Köttner & Carsten Möller
Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is a powder bed based Additive Manufacturing (AM) process that is currently being established in the series production of Ti6Al4V components in the aviation industry. One advantage is the significantly lower Buy-to-Fly ratio. However, subsequent machining is necessary in order to remove support structures of the SLM process and to fulfill quality requirements. Experimental results on support structure removal and simultaneous finishing of holes by helical milling are presented. Engagement conditions...

Extreme scale-dependent tensile properties of epoxy fibers

Xiaomeng Sui, Mayank Tiwari, Israel Greenfeld, Rafail L. Khalfin, Hauke Meeuw, Bodo Fiedler & H. Daniel Wagner
Epoxy fibers with different diameters were prepared by hot drawing and their mechanical properties were measured under tension. The stiffness, strength, ultimate strain, and toughness revealed substantial scale-dependent effects as they all significantly increased with a decrease in size. Compared to bulk epoxy, an intrinsically brittle material, thin epoxy fibers displayed a highly ductile behavior under tension. A drop in stress observed immediately beyond the yield point was followed by the development of a stable...

Modeling of the German National Standard for High Pressure Natural Gas Flow Metering in Modelica

Michael von der Heyde, Gerhard Schmitz & Bodo Mickan
The German national metrological institute Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt uses a High Pressure Piston Prover as the primary standard for high pressure natural gas flow meters. The High Pressure Piston Prover measures the gas flow rate using the time a piston needs to displace a defined enclosed volume of gas in a cylinder. Fluctuating piston velocity during measurement can be a significant source of uncertainty if not considered in an appropriate way (Mickan et al., 2010). A...

Combinatorial n-fold integer programming and applications

Dušan Knop, Martin Koutecký & Matthias Mnich
Many fundamental NP-hard problems can be formulated as integer linear programs (ILPs). A famous algorithm by Lenstra solves ILPs in time that is exponential only in the dimension of the program, and polynomial in the size of the ILP. That algorithm became a ubiquitous tool in the design of fixed-parameter algorithms for NP-hard problems, where one wishes to isolate the hardness of a problem by some parameter. However, in many cases using Lenstra’s algorithm has...

Inexact iterative projection methods for linear and nonlinear eigenvalue problems

Nicolai Rehbein
Wir geben einen allgemeinen Ansatz für das Jacobi-Davidson-Verfahren basierend auf einem beliebigen iterativen Verfahren zum Lösen eines linearen oder nichtlinearen Eigenwertproblems. Die Auswirkung eines inexakten Lösens der Korrekturgleichung wird betrachtet und hieraus kann lineare Konvergenz für drei Fälle von verschiedene Vorbedingungen bewiesen werden. Abschließend wird noch für ein Zwei-Parameter-Eigenwertproblem, welches durch dynamische Systeme mit Totzeit entsteht, ein Funktional eingeführt, welches ähnliche Eigenschaften wie das Rayleigh-Funktional aufweist.

4D spatio-temporal deep learning with 4D fMRI data for autism spectrum disorder classification

Marcel Bengs, Nils Thorben Gessert & Alexander Schlaefer
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is associated with behavioral and communication problems. Often, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is used to detect and characterize brain changes related to the disorder. Recently, machine learning methods have been employed to reveal new patterns by trying to classify ASD from spatio-temporal fMRI images. Typically, these methods have either focused on temporal or spatial information processing. Instead, we propose a 4D spatio-temporal deep learning approach for ASD classification where we...

Jannes Seebeck, Peter Schiffels, Sabine Schweizer, Jörg-Rüdiger Hill & Robert Meißner
To improve the understanding of the relation between electrode curvature and energy storage mechanisms, a systematic investigation of the correlation between convex and concave electrode surfaces and the differential capacitance of an electrochemical double layer capacitor using molecular dynamics simulations is presented. Each electrode consists of three layers of curved graphene sheets with a convex and concave surface to which the constant potential method was applied. The differential capacitance shows a fluctuating behavior with respect...

Modeling the urban system for urban health and well-being with the aim of finding ways to optimize the well-being of urban dwellers is a complex task. Different modeling approaches that consider specific parts of the urban system, e.g., environmental stressors, urban society, and urban morphology, need to be integrated. The conceptual model of health-related urban well-being (UrbWellth) has been constructed to provide a structure for an integrated modeling framework. However, interfaces between the different modeling...

Reader architectures for wireless surface acoustic wave sensors

Fabian Lurz, Thomas Ostertag, Benedict Scheiner, Robert Weigel & Alexander Kölpin
Wireless surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensors have some unique features that make them promising for industrial metrology. Their decisive advantage lies in their purely passive operation and the wireless readout capability allowing the installation also at particularly inaccessible locations. Furthermore, they are small, low-cost and rugged components on highly stable substrate materials and thus particularly suited for harsh environments. Nevertheless, a sensor itself does not carry out any measurement but always requires a suitable excitation...

Fabian Michler, Kilin Shi, Sven Schellenberger, Tobias Steigleder, Anke Malessa, Laura Hameyer, Nina Neumann, Fabian Lurz, Christoph Ostgathe, Robert Weigel & Alexander Kölpin
Vital parameters are key indicators for the assessment of health. Conventional methods rely on direct contact with the patients’ skin and can hence cause discomfort and reduce autonomy. This article presents a bistatic 24 GHz radar system based on an interferometric six-port architecture and features a precision of 1 µm in distance measurements. Placed at a distance of 40 cm in front of the human chest, it detects vibrations containing respiratory movements, pulse waves and...

Radar-Based Heart Sound Detection

Christoph Will, Kilin Shi, Sven Schellenberger, Tobias Steigleder, Fabian Michler, Jonas Fuchs, Robert Weigel, Christoph Ostgathe & Alexander Kölpin
This paper introduces heart sound detection by radar systems, which enables touch-free and continuous monitoring of heart sounds. The proposed measurement principle entails two enhancements in modern vital sign monitoring. First, common touch-based auscultation with a phonocardiograph can be simplified by using biomedical radar systems. Second, detecting heart sounds offers a further feasibility in radar-based heartbeat monitoring. To analyse the performance of the proposed measurement principle, 9930 seconds of eleven persons-under-tests’ vital signs were acquired...

A 24 GHz Waveguide based Radar System using an Advanced Algorithm for I/Q Offset Cancelation

Christoph Will, Sarah Linz, Sebastian Mann, Fabian Lurz, Stefan Lindner, Robert Weigel & Alexander Kölpin
Precise position measurement with micrometer accuracy plays an important role in modern industrial applications. Herewith, a guided wave Six-Port interferometric radar system is presented. Due to limited matching and discontinuities in the radio frequency part of the system, the designers have to deal with DC offsets. The offset voltages in the baseband lead to worse relative modulation dynamics relating to the full scale range of the analog-To-digital converters and thus, considerably degrade the system performance....

Analytical and numerical investigation of the airflow in face masks used for protection against COVID-19 virus : implications for mask design and usage

Robinson Peric & Milovan Perić
Der Einsatz von Atemschutzmasken für die breite Öffentlichkeit wurde in der Literatur als ein möglicher Ansatz vorgeschlagen, um die Virusausbreitung während der weltweiten COVID-19 Pandemie zu reduzieren. Allerdings deuten Literaturdaten darauf hin, dass viele Atemschutzmasken keinen verlässlichen Schutz vor einer Infektion bieten. Dieser Artikel untersucht die Hypothese, dass der Hauptgrund für diese eingeschränkte Schutzwirkung der nicht-passgenaue Sitz der Masken ist, wodurch Virus-transportierende Tröpfchen mit dem Luftstrom durch Spalte zwischen Dichtung und Gesicht eintreten oder austreten...

Solving packing problems with few small items using rainbow matchings

Max Bannach, Sebastian Berndt, Marten Maack, Matthias Mnich, Alexandra Lassota, Malin Rau & Malte Skambath
An important area of combinatorial optimization is the study of packing and covering problems, such as Bin Packing, Multiple Knapsack, and Bin Covering. Those problems have been studied extensively from the viewpoint of approximation algorithms, but their parameterized complexity has only been investigated barely. For problem instances containing no “small” items, classical matching algorithms yield optimal solutions in polynomial time. In this paper we approach them by their distance from triviality, measuring the problem complexity...
