Optimization of the dynamic behavior of slewing mechanisms for bucket wheel excavators
Swivel mechanisms enable the targeted control of a rotary movement. This is between
two ball races arranged a plurality of rolling elements, which have a bearing function
of the rotatable system part. The slewing ring is driven by a
Pinion-ring gear system, whereby the drive power necessary for the rotary movement is over
several swivel drives arranged on the circumference of the ring gear are provided.
During the digging process, the bucket wheel excavator’s superstructure is lifted over the slewing mechanism
pivoted about its vertical axis, so that a large area of ​​the slope from the paddle wheel
can be covered without moving the device. However, due to the
mechanical coupling with the wheel arm, the digging forces in the slewing gear and in the

Co- ordination of EU- Funding is essential for maintaining international competitiveness

The steel industry will play a key role on the way to a climate-neutral economy in 2050. Since a significant part of the industrial CO2 emissions in steel production occurs via the blast furnace-converter route, the use of climate-friendly technologies could have an enormous impact on climate protection. Various possibilities are known and available for this, from the direct avoidance of CO2 in the production process (Carbon Direct Avoidance CDA) to the chemical processing of the CO2 (Carbon Capture and Usage CCU), to the circular economy. They must now be quickly researched in demonstration and pilot processes for their industrial feasibility. An even stronger focus on the circular economy offers further potential for more sustainability and climate protection.

Funding required for investment and operating costs
The conversion to green production processes is associated with massive investments for steel companies. For the locations in Germany, this will amount to around 30 billion euros by 2050. In addition, there are significantly higher operating costs for climate-friendly processes. The transformation therefore requires full funding of investment costs and additional operating costs in the case of large-scale implementation. On the part of the state, European and national funding programs exist or are being set up for which steel companies can apply.

It is also important that steel companies in Germany can apply for and receive funding from the ETS Innovation Fund, which is intended to support the implementation and demonstration of low-carbon steel production. This includes that companies using this program can receive additional funding from other funding programs (“sequencing”). In the 9th EU framework program for research and innovation and the achievement of the “Clean Steel” partnership, Germany should at least participate in proportion to its share in EU steel production.

Niels v. Bülow Foundation The foundation is named after Niels von Bülow (1894-1983), the chairman of the HVG and DGG from 1948 to 1963 and the initiator of the foundation. The foundation was set up in 1964 and came about thanks to a generous donation from Gerresheimer Glashüttenwerke, Düsseldorf. The sole purpose of the foundation is the non-profit promotion of vocational training and advanced training for young professionals for the glass industry. The aim is to give the scholarship holders the opportunity to study, to continue a course they have started, or to do a doctorate after completing their main examination through a one-off financial aid or financial aid extending over a longer period of time.

Bauhaus 2019 Competition:

The recognition in the 2019 university competition was announced on November 14th. awarded at the Bauhaus University in Weimar. All award-winning works are documented in the competition catalog

Within the scope of the EPD, the totality of released volatile organic compounds and especially the formaldehyde emissions were examined and evaluated in the test chamber experiment. These substances are suspected of causing allergic and carcinogenic (carcinogenic) effects after prolonged exposure, as is typical for interior rooms in apartments. However, gypsum boards and their varieties (damp room, fire protection, perforated and dry screed boards) and gypsum fiber boards (also known as dry screed boards) do not have any of these negative effects on indoor air quality. The indoor emissions values measured and shown in the EPD meet all safety requirements according to the recognized test scheme of the Committee for the Health Assessment of Building Products (AgBB test scheme for interior emissions.

Asphalt Meta Research Programs

“Incoming inspection of reclaimed asphalt by means of FTIR spectroscopy for optimised reuse in the asphalt mixing plant”.
Research objective and working hypothesis
The aim of the proposed research project is to develop and test a method for the
characterisation of road paving materials, which allows the identification of problematic
This will enable the identification of problematic constituents and modifications originally used in asphalts. If the analytical method investigated is suitable, the
At the end of the project, a test method will be available that can be used in the asphalt mixing laboratory, which will enable the FTIR measurement and the quantitative evaluation of the measurement in a user-friendly way.
Solution
The proposed solution for the development and testing of a method for the for the FTIR analysis of reclaimed asphalt to improve the reuse in asphalt mixtures comprises a total of nine work packages:
1. construction of an asphalt-specific spectral library for the identification of problematic constituents (e.g. PAHs) as well as common modifiers and additives. 2,
2. optimisation of the procedure for obtaining representative asphalt mortar samples from reclaimed asphalts for FTIR analysis,
3. laboratory conception of the FTIR analysis methodology on samples with known and defined
and defined composition,
4. validation of the FTIR analysis on representative asphalts with known composition with parallel analysis using conventional
methods,
5. practical testing of the FTIR analysis in an asphalt mixing plant.

finished by 31.1.2021 “Determination and parameterization of the cavity distribution in asphalt specimens using asphalt petrological methods”

Working hypothesis
The aim of the planned project is to design a preparation and analysis procedure for the differentiated
description of the void distribution of asphalts, which will mature to practical suitability in the medium
and less time-consuming implementation, this method will mature to practical suitability in the medium term.
Compared to conventional methods for determining the void content, a higher informative value with regard to the void distribution can be achieved. The knowledge gained can then contribute to the understanding of the interactions of asphalt constituents, as well as to the optimisation of mixtures and paving processes.
For example, the effects of small deviations in the grading curve or the binder content, but also those of the temperature on the cavity structure. It is possible that small parameters can lead to a significantly better structure and thus a longer durability of the asphalt pavement.

Die Spaltung der Welt … hier: Uni- Organisationen

Die Spaltung der Welt zwischen linken (USA Sprache: “liberal”) UN- und “den anderen”, konservativen Kräften ist sogar in der Welt der den Unis übergeordneten Organisationen spürbar!
Bei der Suche nach F&E Exzellenz war ich vor 2 Jahren auf die LERU gestoßen.
Die Leru ist, oder WAR eine League, ein Verband von 10 Hochschulen in Europa, die sich besonders stark machten für die (technische) Forschung und Entwicklung, mehr jedenfalls als für die Lehre. Mit dabei die TOP Unis dieses Bereiche, die TU München und die ETH Zürich.

Das ist vorbei, das ist passé.

Der Verband hat sich an der UN ausgerichtet, (LERU set up a cooperation with the United Nations by signing up to the UN Academic Impact Principles“) ist massiv gewachsen, hat jetzt 23 Mitglieder.

Der technische Schwerpunkt ist verloren gegangen, Schwerpunkte sind soziale Studien: “we work on many topics related to research management and funding, open science, responsible research and innovation, research impact, research infrastructures, doctoral education, research careers and gender issues.” Publications

Er nennt die Prioriät an erster Stelle auch nicht mehr “Research”, sondern “Diversity”, hier. Die Autorin ist Mitarbeiterin des Imperial College, London, DAS Zentrum für den Chinesischen Einfluß in der EU. Was das bedeutet? Mehr bei Gunnar Kaiser, hier

Die TU München und die ETH sind auch nicht mehr dabei.
Die Tech- Unis haben einen neuen, ihren eigenen Verband gegründet, hier: https://eurotech-universities.eu/
