  • BMBF-Leitprojekt ADAPTRONIK


In 1997 BMBF, within the framework of an idea competition for future-oriented key technologies and their industrial utilization, called for project proposals from industries and research for so-called “Leitprojekts”. An independent group of experts selected few project proposals from the many submitted, and proposed them to BMBF for promotion. One of these projects is the BMBF-Leitprojekt ADAPTRONIK which is introduced in this paper. The Leitprojekt ADAPTRONIK which consists of 24 partners from industry and research institutes and is conducted under the responsibility of the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (DLR) in Brunswick, focuses on the structure-conforming integration of piezoelectronic fibers and patches in structures for lightweight construction. It is aimed at active vibration and noise reduction, contour deformation and micro-positioning in the very sense of adaptronics in various industrial applications. The project targets are prototype assemblies from the fields of automotive industry, rail vehicles, mechanical engineering, medical engineering, and aerospace.
