Things are running hot at IFAM - Using High-Temperature Materials against Global Warming

To announce the upcoming advanced training course in Dresden in May, the DGM short webinar "Mit Hochtemperaturwerkstoffen gegen die Erderwärmung" ('With High-Temperature Materials against Global Warming') took place on the 1st of April 2022. The speaker was the 23-time Science Slam winner Dr. Uwe Gaitzsch from Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden.


In Dr. Gaitzsch's German talk, it quickly becomes apparent that things are running hot at IFAM. At 1000 °C and more, high-temperature materials such as superalloys, aluminides of iron or titanium, and refractory metal alloys have to prove their functionality. The higher the temperatures, the more efficiently such materials function. High-temperature metallic materials are of great interest in research and industry in sustainable energy technology and mobility. However, Dr. Gaitzsch knows from his laboratory experience that only when simulation, modeling, and manufacturing are seamlessly intertwined do raw material-efficient and industry-suitable manufacturing processes meet the requirements of reverse engineering. Highly interesting, highly complex, and highly interesting. Despite the afternoon hour on Friday, more than 50 participants in the auditorium followed Dr. Gaitzsch's presentation, for which the DGM would like to thank him in detail.

True to the motto "High-temperature materials: For those who want more than just hot air," all those interested have the opportunity to take part in a three-day advanced training course led by Dr. Gaitzsch and other renowned lecturers from research and industry. The advanced training course "Einführung in metallische Hochtemperaturwerkstoffe” (‘Introduction to High-Temperature Metallic Materials’) will take place in German language from the 09th to the 11th of May 2022 at Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden.
