Alexander, born in 1992 in Augsburg, studied Civil Engineering from 2011 to 2018 at TU Munich. He focused and specialized on structural engineering. Since September 2018 he works at the Institute and Laboratory for Structural Engineering at the University of German Self Defence Forces in Munich under the supervision of Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Geralt Siebert. His topic area is the mechanical behaviour of intact and broken laminated safety glass with a main focus on the polymeric interlayer modelling.
Martin Botz is a research assistant at the Institute and Laboratory for sructural engineering at the University of German Armed Forces in Munich under the supervision of Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Geralt Siebert. He graduated with a Master of Science degree in civil engineering at the University of German Armed Forces in Munich in 2013. Before joining the research team of Prof. Siebert in 2016, he worked as EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) – officer in the German army. His research area is the field of structural glass engineering, especially the investigation of polymer interlayers used in laminated glass. The focus is on the material behavior of the interlayers in the postfractured state of laminated glass.
Michael A. Kraus M.Sc. (hons) studied Civil Engineering at the Technical University Munich with a specialisation in structural engineering. Since 2015 Michael Kraus works at the Institute and Laboratory for Structural Engineering at the University of German Self Defence Forces in Munich. Special aspects of his research and PhD thesis lie in the fields of the application of Bayesian Machine Learning approaches to uncertainty quantification in the fields of material modelling and system identification. By end of 2018 he submitted his dissertation on ‘Machine Learning Techniques for the Material Parameter Identification of Laminated Glass in the Intact and Post-Fracture State’.
