Not only should all parts of this kind be manufactured on a material- and weight-optimised basis, they also have to be able to withstand strong and fluctuating loads over long periods of time and must also fulfil their respective function securely. This requires the reliable status monitoring of the materials at the highly stressed locations.

“The industrial regions of Germany can only remain competitive over the long term, however, if their considerable potential in basic research and applied research is combined together more closely. In this respect, it is especially important to establish regional research and cooperation networks between the fields of basic research, application-oriented research and industrial development.
