Fraunhofer EMI

Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics, Ernst-Mach-Institut


The Ernst-Mach-Institut studies high-speed processes in experiment and simulation. We consider them from a physical and engineering perspective and develop solutions for industrial applications.

Our center of interest is on security, resilience, reliability, efficiency and sustainability of structures, components and systems under dynamic and extraordinary loads. We analyze phenomena of crash, impact and shock-waves in materials, microstructures as well as in complex systems.

Our applications range from components and design of structures to whole vehicles and defense technology systems, from buildings and infrastructures, urban systems and networks to satellite systems.
