Master thesis for digital image analysis in the department high temperature materials and simulation (m/f/d)

The High Temperature Materials and Materials Simulation team supports a wide range of nickel-based superalloys for use in the hot gas section of aircraft engines. Due to the component and material characteristics, many components are manufactured by investment casting. Due to material shrinkage during solidification, cast components can have porous areas. The appearance ranges from individual pores of various sizes to porosity clusters or pore chains. These material defects are detected during quality control and must be evaluated in respect of component integrity. For the evaluation, an effective defect size is determined on the basis of metallographic sections. This process is to be more automated in the context of a master thesis.
