TU Wien - Institute of Mechanics and Mechatronics
The Institute is divided into workgroups for technical dynamics and vehicle dynamics, solid body mechanics, measurement engineering and actuating elements, and control systems as well as process automation. Special attention is paid to the modelling and simulation of malleable and rigid bodies.
Technologies and competences
Modelling and simulation of wired satellite systems, determination of the stability of a space elevator and control of the extension and retraction procedure of wired satellites are in the foreground of the Institute's space activities.
