Matthias Wangenheim

After studying mechanical engineering at LUH, Matthias joined Airbus Defense & Space as a systems engineer in 2004. From 2005, he was a scientific assistant and PhD student at the IDS, completing his PhD in 2011 on the friction of pneumatic seals. Matthias went on to work as an advanced development engineer at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. He has been assistant director of the Institute of Dynamics and Vibration Research (IDS) at Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), and leader of the research group on elastomer friction since 2013.


Dynamic driving maneuvers on a new internal drum test rig

At the Institute of Dynamics and Vibration Research of Leibniz University Hannover, we have a new internal drum test rig designed for high-performance lateral driving maneuvers. Besides introducing the test rig we will show the first test results on unsteady rolling conditions: after a step in normal tire load or slip angle tire, forces and torques respond with a time delay. We will show an analysis of the effect of testing conditions such as tire pressure or rolling speed on these time delay constants.
