Successful Disputation Dr.-Ing. Viktor Recklin


On Tuesday, November 12th, 2019, Mr. Dr.-Ing. Viktor Recklin successfully defended

his doctoral thesis before an examination board headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Cameron


Mr. Recklin has quantified the influence of strain induced surface evolution in sheet

metal forming in his dissertation. Using a combination of experimental and numerical

methods, the strain-induced friction behavior and the variation of the surface

topography were analyzed. Furthermore, application examples in forming technology,

such as deep drawing processes, were investigated.

In addition to his professional successes, Mr. Recklin has strongly influenced and

promoted the institute in his role as a research assistant in many ways. We would

like to thank him for his commitment!

We wish Mr. Recklin continued success and all the best for his future!
