Investigation of natural vibrations and lightweight design potential of different lattice and honeycomb structures
This project investigates to which extent bio-inspired structural irregularities can positively influence vibration characteristics. In cooperation with the German Electron Synchotron (DESY) the girder structure of the new storage ring X-ray source PETRA IV will be designed and optimized with regard to its vibration properties.
