Ultrasonic assisted milling of reinforced plastics

Uhlmann, Eckart ; Protz, F. ; Stawiszynski, B. ; Heidler, S. (2017)

The milling of glass and carbon fibre reinforced plastics provides manufacturers from the automotive and aerospace industry with major challenges. The high carbon and glass fibre content increases the risk of insufficient production qualities. The abrasive fibres cause cutting edge rounding which results in the issue that the comparatively thick glass fibre cannot be reliably cut, while the car...

How to Uncover Sources of Unwarranted Practice Variation: A Case Study in Emergency Medicine

Feufel, Markus A. (2018-05)

Forty years of statistical database analyses have demonstrated the existence of unwarranted practice variation in care delivery, that is, variations independent of medical need, evidence, or patient preference. Alas, little is known about the underlying mechanisms and thus finding interventions to reduce unwarranted variations remains difficult, hampering quality, equity, and efficiency of care...

Decisionmaking in practice: The dynamics of muddling through

Flach, John M. ; Feufel, Markus A. ; Reynolds, Peter L. ; Henrickson Parker, Sarah ; Kellogg, Kathryn M. (2017-05)

An alternative to conventional models that treat decisions as open-loop independent choices is presented. The alterative model is based on observations of work situations such as healthcare, where decisionmaking is more typically a closed-loop, dynamic, problem-solving process. The article suggests five important distinctions between the processes assumed by conventional models and the reality ...

Nichtlineare Vorhersage kritischer Strukturantworten in irregulärem Seegang

Dudek, Matthias (2018)

Die Durchführbarkeit von Offshore-Operationen hängt von limitierenden Designkriterien wie Absolut- bzw. Relativbewegungen der beteiligten Strukturen ab. Daher müssen vor der Operation, die oft nur ein bis zwei Minuten andauert, der vorherrschende Seegang und die damit einhergehenden Bewegungen exakt analysiert werden. Für das Erreichen größtmöglicher Betriebssicherheit und Wirtschaftlichkeit si...

Uhlmann, Eckart ; Meier, Paul (2017)

A new approach to reuse accruing chips and dust from milling operations of carbon reinforced plastics (CFRP) is studied, show-ing how CFRP milling dust, in comparison to primary and pyrolysed fibres, can find application as a filler material in thermo-plastic granulates. Recent examinations show an overall better handling of milling dust when separating it into different classes of fibre length...

The dynamics of volcanic jets

Cigala, V. ; Kueppers, U. ; Peña Fernández, J. J. ; Taddeucci, J. ; Sesterhenn, J. ; Dingwell, D. B. (2017-07-24)

Pyroclast ejection during explosive volcanic eruptions occurs under highly dynamic conditions involving great variations in flux, particle sizes, and velocities. This variability must be a direct consequence of complex interactions between physical and chemical parameters inside the volcanic plumbing system. The boundary conditions of such phenomena cannot be fully characterized via field obser...
