Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology

Technische Universität Wien - Institute for Engineering Design and Logistics Engineering

The Machine Design and Rehabilitation Engineering Division teaches and works scientifically on the basics of mechanical engineering. One main field is power transmissions with a special focus on transmissions for aviation. The laboratory of the Institute enables experimental investigations of transmissions like measurements of wear, acoustical characteristics and power tests.

Technologies and competences

The Institute has the capability of design and development including theoretical calculations of drive trains for aviation, especially transmissions and drive shafts. It is a member of the aviation working group at the Vienna University of Technology and a member of the AAI. The test field and the laboratory enable test and qualification runs according to the EASA certification specifications.
