Dr. A. Chen - University of Exeter England


Im Rahmen des DFG-geförderten Kooperationsprojekts GZ: LE 3220/1-1 "Dual Drainage"des Lehrstuhls für Hydrologie, Wasserwirtschaft und Umwelttechnik, Ruhr-Universität Bochum und dem Centre for Water Systems, University of Exeter, England, weilte Dr. A. Chen im Juli 2013 und im Dezember/Januar 2013/14 für zwei Forschungsaufenthalte an der Ruhr-Universität. Während dieser Zeit gab Dr. Chen einen Vortrag über "Multi-layered inundation modeling for urban areas". Sein Aufenthalt trugmaßgeblich dazu bei, die Entwicklung einer parallelisierten Version eines innovativen 1D/2D-Diffusionswellenmodells für natürliche- und besiedelte Einzugsgebiete voranzutreiben.

Prof. Carlo Callari - Università del Molise Italy


In the framework of the cooperation project VIGONI 2012/13 between the Institute of Structural Mechanics, Ruhr Universität Bochum and Facoltà di Ingegneria, Università del Molise, Italy, Prof. Carlo Callari visited the Institute of Structural Mechanics in November and December for a research stay as guest Professor (Gebäude IC 6/159 ).
During this period his work was focused on "Development of the scientific and technological basis for a new three dimensional finite element model with improved criteria for localized shear band propagation in saturated and partially saturated soft soil based on the so-called Strong Discontinuity Approach (SDA)"

Dr. Ioannis Brilakis - University of Cambridge, UK

Within the frame of an existing collaboration between the Chair of “Computing in Engineering” and the “Construction Information Technology Laboratory” at the University of Cambridge Dr. Ioannis Brilakis visited our university on July 5, 2011. As a leading expert in his research area Dr. Brilakis gave a talk on “Infrastructure Modeling and Applications with Computer Vision”. Subsequent discussions led to the development of new ideas and perspectives that are supposed to result in collaborative research proposals.
