Learning outcomes:
H.-W. Groh: Bildverarbeitung (1 V + 1 U/P)
After successfully completing this part of the module, students will be able to read out images from files, from video files, or from a camera, display them on the screen, and post-process them (e.g., convert them) as required.
 
M. Fries / TH. Heinze: GT-Power (1 V + 0,5 U/P)
After successfully completing this part of the module, students will be able to simulate the catalysts of internal combustion engines in terms of their flow behavior and pollutant conversion.
 
R. Tiemann: Einführung in die Mehrkörper-Simulation (MKS) am Beispiel des Automobils (1 V + 0,5 U/P)
Today´s automotive development is characterized by the use of many calculation and simulation software tools. After sucessfully completing this part of the module, students will be familiar with the existing systems and how they work.
- Simulation methods
- Multibody simulation (MBS); contents, performance, limitations, providers.
- Designing vehicle models, use of control systems for longitudinal and lateral dynamics, e.g. ABS, TCS, ESC
- Virtual test drives
