Jun.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Fehr studied Mechatronics in Stuttgart and Mechanical Engineering in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. 2006 he finished his diploma as well as master studies. From 2006 till 2011 he was a research assistant of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Eberhard at the University of Stuttgart. His research focus was the automated model reduction for elastic multibody systems, and he developed the model reduction program “Model Reduction of Elastic Multibody Systems” (Morembs) – one of the first non-modal reduction programs for elastic bodies. Furthermore, he was one of the first Ph.D. students of the Cluster of Excellence "SimTech."
Afterwards, as a simulation engineer at TRW Automotive GmbH, he was in charge of the development of new mechatronic vehicle safety systems. Since 2014 Jörg Fehr is Junior Professor at the Institute for Engineering and Computational Mechanics and Cluster of Excellence Simulation Technology (SRC SimTech) of the University of Stuttgart and since October 2015 he is a dean of the B. Sc. and M. Sc. study program of Mechatronics. One goal of his current research is the development of optimal human body models for the simulation of vehicle safety systems and the speedup of the simulations using linear and nonlinear model reduction methods.
