The lecture "Metrology and Structural Analysis in machine tool construction" deals in detail with the metrological and computational analysis of the mechanical behaviour of machine tools and their assemblies. The theoretical basics of the geometric, kinematic, static, dynamic, thermal and acoustic behaviour of machine tools are covered.
In addition to teaching the basics, the metrological investigation and assessment of machine behaviour carried out in practical exercises plays a key role in deepening the theoretical knowledge.
A further focus is the presentation of the possibilities and means of computational structural analysis. Here the finite element method and other calculation and optimization methods are dealt with. Of particular interest in this context is the final comparison of measurement and calculation results.
