Information Management of Multi-Scale Physical State Variables in an Interdisciplinary Research Unit

Frank Molkenthin, Christin Meienberg & Reinhard Hinkelmann
Information management is one important and challenging task in engineering projects. The progress in computer simulation techniques, new measurement techniques in field and laboratory as well as the access to mass of data via the Internet requires new information management strategies beyond traditional database solutions. This paper describes the information management in an ongoing research unit dealing with the coupling of flow and deformation processes for modeling the movement of natural slopes. Based on a...
