Open Theses Topics

All projects can be fitted to the needs in terms of complexity, quantity and theory to programming ratio.

If you are interested, just drop by…

Computational fluid dynamics and control

  • Optimal distributed control of nonlinear Navier-Stokes equations via differential-algebraic matrix Riccati equations

  • Boundary control of cylindric flow using particular Couette-solutions

As these projects base on numerical analysis and system and control theory, they are very suitable for students of mathematics. Basic knowledge of numerical mathematics and a programming language is mandatory. Knowledge of control theory and fluid dynamics will be useful.

Control of Dynamical Systems

  • Advanced control of a double or triple pendulum
  • Low-budget realization of a double pendulum

These projects have a hardware component. They are particularly suited for control or electrical engineers, but also for students of mathematics that have a favor for engineering applications.

In cooperation with the Magdeburg company Hasomed.

Modelling and Simulation

  • Spurious lights in laser measurements

With Jun.-Prof. Benoit Fond (OvGU Magdeburg, Institute of Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics)
