Double award: Research assistant and senior engineer Dr.-Ing. Katharina Bartsch and student Luc Vincent Rehm from Hamburg University of Technology were honored for their outstanding achievements by the Rotary Club Hamburg-Haake. Both prizes are endowed with 1,500 euros each.

Katharina Bartsch received the Scientific Innovation Prize (WIP) for her excellent research work, which is characterized by a high degree of scientific novelty, a high potential for economic success and a high degree of market maturity. market maturity. She presented the results of her dissertation research entitled "Digitalization of design for support structures in laser powder bed fusion of metals", for which she was awarded her doctorate with distinction. She developed a fully automated calculation of efficient bionic tree structures for the construction of 3D printed metal components. In addition to laser-optical, thermodynamic and mechanical computer simulations and calculations using an algorithm derived from bionics, Katharina Bartsch experimentally verified her physically optimal results and transferred them into industrially available software for the 3D printing industry through a research project.

Luc Vincent Rehm received the Delmes-Buxmann Prize for his excellent Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. He graduated as the best student in mechanical engineering with an overall grade of 1.1.
