Modelling and simulation of cables with transported mass points

Johannes Gerstmayr

My research focus concerns theoretical, numerical and experimental problems in the field of multibody system dynamics.

As a developer of software tools in multibody dynamics, I see a lot of open theoretical and numerical problems in nonlinear structural dynamics, which is the reason why I like to participate in the ETN. My special focus is on the dynamics of highly slender beams interacting with their surrounding, e.g. in the case of ropeway systems and medical applications, which will be addressed in the project of ESR8.
