Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to use special theoretical and experimental methods for the analysis of energy consumption, noise emissions, carbon dioxide emissions and local exhaust emissions from vehicle drives in real use. The focus is also on the accuracy of the different methods.

Subject of course

Project areas include energy efficiency, exhaust gas emissions and acoustic properties of motor vehicles or drives. A topic catalog is offered and can be sent to you by email. Work can be carried out as part of current research projects.

Teaching methods

Structure of the PA like scientific work: cover sheet, short version, table of contents, formula symbols and abbreviations, main part of the work, bibliography (as footnotes or as a separate chapter).
Scope of work (main part) 20 to 25 pages. This main part should be divided into a literary research, the description of the methodology used, analyzes, calculations or experiments carried out, the results and a discussion as well as a summary and outlook.
Please quote all text passages and illustrations and graphics from other publications in accordance with recognized citation rules.
Please use only scientifically technical articles and books as literature sources. Google Scholar http://scholar.google.at and the TU Library are helpful.
