General and special institute profile of the BAM for the project „TuSec"

(Version: 2007-04-19)

The aim of the BAM is it to improve safety in technology and chemistry. For this BAM examines substances, materials and construction units as well as natural and technical systems, examines its reliability, tests procedures and develops necessary testing methods and standards. That technological knowledge, the experimental equipment as well as the research know-how in the interest of public-technical security (safety) qualifies the BAM also as a partner in technical aspects of the defense of threats (security) to take action.

For the network "Tunnel Security" (TuSec) the following specialised groups are available for technical cooperation for the project start. A later adjustment of the BAM partners to be taken part is at any time possible according to actual setting of tasks.

Tasks of BAM-VIII.1:
Non-destructive testing (ZfP) material, construction unit-integrated fiber-optic and electrical sensor systems, condition supervision (structural health monitoring) and experimental damage analysis by means of fiber-optic, optical and electrical sensor systems, deformation analysis and physical material characterisation by means of optical and radiation testing methods, certification of optical reference materials, reliability judgment, validation, examination and calibration of sensors, measuring and test systems

Priorities to further fields of activity and R&D in the field of security, which could be adapted if necessary for tunnel security:

  • use of methods of the non-destructive testing (ZfP) in the border protection, the terror and criminality fight with picture-giving transmission testing methodes, ultrasonic, radar (geo radar, mm-wave and THz-radiation), gas analysis and eddy current technology as well as spectroscopic procedures (mobile and stationary applicable)
  • detection against conventional and unorthodox explosion and fire devices, also with chemical, radioactive or other loadings
  • risk analyses for industrial plants and storages with dangerous materials/goods
  • computational one and experimental methods for the evaluation of dangerous goods enclosing, constructions and plants under extreme mechanical and thermal effects
  • simulation/adjustment of fire and explosion scenarios; experimental explosive loading up to 150 kg TNT equivalent on own real estate, for greater loading at suitable external locations
  • development of a standardised procedure for the examination of the explosion pressure-restrain effect of glass windows, doors and facades
  • development and testing chemical sensors for explosives (so-called electronic noses) with high selectivity and short response time
