About Walter Sextro

In research and academics, we are primarily concerned with modeling, simulation, reliability, optimization, operation, condition monitoring including diagnosis and prognosis of mechanical, mechatronic and intelligent technical systems. The Chairs’ main areas of research are nonlinear dynamics, contact mechanics, friction, condition monitoring, data analytics, reliability engineering, sensors, actuators and ultrasound technology. In these areas our research is driven by sustainable approaches.
