Dr Roland Rennert

Photo of Roland Rennert Roland Rennert studied Technical Mechanics at the Technical University Dresden. Since 1995 he has been employed at IMA Dresden, a technical and scientific supplier in several fields of industry, e.g. aeronautics, railway and automotive.
From the beginning, he worked in topics as measurement data analysis, vibration problems and fatigue strength. From 2003 to 2009 he was the technical project leader during the retrofit of the Combino trams, especially responsible for the analytical and experimental fatigue strength assessments.
After that, he has been active in the national and European standardisation for railway vehicles.
Furthermore, since 2010 he has worked on the further development of the FKM-Guideline “Analytical Strength Assessment”, is one of its actual authors and has gotten the official contact person for questions and hints regarding the FKM-Guideline.
