Dr. Ingo Kaiser, Universidad Antonio de Nebrija, Spain

Professor Buddhima Indraratna

Ingo Kaiser studied mechanical engineering at the University of Hannover (Germany) and received his diploma in mechanical engineering in 1996. From 1996 to 2002, he worked at the Institute of Mechanics of the University of Hannover on a project belonging to the priority program “System Dynamics and Long-Time Behaviour of Vehicle, Track and Subgrade” funded by the German Research Council (DFG). From 2002 to 2014, he worked at the Institute of System Dynamics and Control of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) at Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich (Germany). His research is focused on the enhancement and refinement of computational models for the running behaviour of railway vehicles, especially the modelling of the structural flexibility of wheelsets and rails and the detailed modelling of the rolling contact. Besides his scientific work, he was deputy chief of the DLR_School_Lab Oberpfaffenhofen, which promotes science and engineering among students from school. He is member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Railway Technology. In 2015, he changed to the School of Engineering and Architecture at Nebrija University in Madrid (Spain), where he continues his research on the dynamics of railway vehicles and teaches computational modelling of railway vehicles.
