Education

DBM staff members contribute to many courses in bachelor and master programs of Mechancical Engineering and Industrial Design Engineering and in the PDEng Maintenance program. Courses specifically related to the research themes of the DBM group are

  • Minor Aerospace Management and Operations (BSc)
    Contains a module on maintenance of aircraft.
  • Minor Aircraft Engineering (BSc)
    One lecture on (structural aspects of) gas turbine engines
  • Failure Mechanisms and Life Prediction (MSc / PDEng)
    Basic principles of loads and failure mechanisms, i.e. fatigue, creep, corrosion, wear, and application in predictive maintenance and failure analysis.
  • Structural Health & Condition Monitoring (MSc / PDEng)
    Evaluation of various technologies to assess the structural performance and/or condition of a (dynamic) system. Topics addressed are: wear and condition in rotary systems, damage identification based on structural vibrations and on active and passive wave propagation, signal processing, failure mechanisms and predictive maintenance.
  • Maintenance Engineering and Management (MSc / PDEng)
    Introduction to the field of maintenance engineering. Topics like life cycle, logistic support, maintenance strategies, failure mode and effect analysis, root cause analysis.
