Strömungsmaschinen und Fluiddynamik / Turbomachinery and fluid dynamics

Vorstandsmitglied / Board Member

Forschungstätigkeit / Research activities:

Im Rahmen seiner Forschung untersucht Professor Georg Klepp die Energieeffizienzsteigerung von industriellen Anlagen und Maschinen, insbesondere Strömungsmaschinen.

As part of his research, Professor Georg Klepp examines the increase in energy efficiency of industrial plants and machines, especially turbo machines.

Berufstätigkeit / Employment:

Während seiner industriellen Tätigkeit befasste sich Klepp unter anderem mit der energetischen Optimierung von Strömungs- und Reaktionsführung in der Prozessindustrie sowie dem Wärmemanagement in der Antriebstechnik, der Entwicklung und Umsetzung neuer Konzepte für das Energiemanagement in der Gebäudetechnik, Optimierung von Kühlprozessen (Luftkühlung) sowie Entwicklung energieoptimierter Radialmaschinen, Axialmaschinen und Schraubenmaschinen. Ein Schwerpunkt ist die Modellierung und Berechnung unterschiedlicher anspruchsvoller energie- und strömungstechnischer Prozesse auf der Basis der numerischen Simulationen. Seit September 2011 leitet er im Fachbereich Maschinentechnik und Mechatronik das Labor für Strömungsmaschinen und Fluiddynamik.

During his industrial activity, Klepp dealt with, among other things, the energetic optimisation of flow and reaction control in the process industry and heat management in drive technology, the development and implementation of new concepts for energy management in building technology, optimisation of cooling processes (air cooling) and the development of energy-optimised ones Radial machines, axial machines and screw machines. One focus is the modeling and calculation of different demanding energy and fluidic processes based on the numerical simulations. Since September 2011, he is the head of the laboratory for fluid-flow machines and fluid dynamics in the mechanical engineering and mechatronics department.

Akademische Ausbildung / Academic education:

Klepp studierte Maschinenbau an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum und wurde 1999 als Mitglied des Graduiertenkollegs „Modellierung Berechnung und Identifikation Mechanischer Systeme“ der Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg für seine Arbeit „Strömung und Wärmeübergang bei der Intensivkühlung“ promoviert.

Klepp studied mechanical engineering at the Ruhr University in Bochum and received his doctorate in 1999 as a member of the Research Training Group "Modeling Calculation and Identification of Mechanical Systems" at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg for his work "Flow and heat transfer in intensive cooling".
