Annual Report 2019/2020
The EMI Annual Report 2019/2020 provides an overview of successfully completed research projects, new research fields and a review of a successful year.
Fraunhofer EMI contributes its share for the safety and security of our society. We want to protect our employees, their families and our business partners.
We stay at home and work remotely from home. Employees can be reached by email or telephone. Thus, we keep up research for a safe future, even in challenging times like these.
The Ernst-Mach-Institut studies high-speed processes in experiment and simulation. We consider them from a physical and engineering perspective and develop solutions for industrial applications.
Our center of interest is on security, resilience, reliability, efficiency and sustainability of structures, components and systems under dynamic and extraordinary loads. We analyze phenomena of crash, impact and shock-waves in materials, microstructures as well as in complex systems.
Our applications range from components and design of structures to whole vehicles and defense technology systems, from buildings and infrastructures, urban systems and networks to satellite systems.
