Hydro Power

Hybrid Workshop

November 16-17, 2022

The workshop "Hydropower" in the workshop-series is the only one that takes place on-site and online.
When the Covid19 situation so requires the workshop will be held online only. In this case we will inform you in a timely manner.


•    Condition Monitoring, Software Tools, Maintenance, Non-Destructive-Evaluation
•    Quality Assurance, Material Properties, Inherent Safety
•    Numerical Simulations of (Hydraulic) Components, CFD/FE, Fluid-Structure-Interaction,
      Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics
•    Transient Behavior, Hydraulic Systems
•    Guided Tour to Test Stands at IHS and MPA

The HYDRO POWER WORKSHOP 2022 at the University of Stuttgart will take place for the first time this year as a joint event of the Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machinery (IHS) and the Materials Testing Institute (MPA). The workshop covers four main blocks and thus covers fundamental aspects of condition monitoring and evaluation of plant components as well as quality assurance when purchasing new equipment. Further, focus lies on numerical simulations including FE or CFD calculations on hydroelectric power plants and the transient behavior of hydraulic systems. Guided tours to the test facilities at IHS and MPA complete the seminar.


The detailed lecture program will be available here soon.

Venue and Directions

Internationales Begegnungszentrum (IBZ) der Universität Stuttgart im Eulenhof
Robert-Leicht-Straße 161

By railway

From Stuttgart main station, take the S-Bahn S1 (Herrenberg/Böblingen/Vaihingen), S2 (Filderstadt/Flughafen/Vaihingen) or S3 (Flughafen/Vaihingen) to the stop "Universität". Leave the S-Bahn station in the direction of the "Universitätszentrum" exit. A signpost at the exit of the S-Bahn stop will guide you to the IBZ.

By plane

From the airport, take the S-Bahn S2 or S3 in the direction of the city center to the stop "Universität" . (Travel time: 17 minutes). Leave the S-Bahn station in the direction of the "Universitätszentrum" exit. A signpost at the exit of the S-Bahn stop will guide you to the IBZ.

By car

At the Stuttgart freeway junction, change to the A831 freeway in the direction of Stuttgart-Vaihingen/Stuttgart-Zentrum. Leave the freeway at the exit "Universität". After the exit, cross the highway at the first traffic light on the left and follow the main road (Universitätsstrasse). At the end of this street turn left into Allmandstraße. After 300m you will come to an intersection with traffic lights. Turn left here into Robert-Leicht-Straße. Follow Robert-Leicht-Straße almost to the end. The IBZ is on the left.


By foot

You come from the campus Vaihingen respectively from the S-Bahn stop "Universität". Follow the signs (about 10 minutes).
