Bachelor’s and Master’s theses on Messerschmitt Me 262 topics ...

Valentin Erb’s Bachelor’s thesis focused on the drafting of a concept for the analysis of the Me 262’s slow-flight performance and on what were the most suitable instruments for gathering the data.

This paper served as preparation for his now completed Master’s thesis which is entitled “The Assessment of the Me 262’s Slow-Flight Performance”. To this aim he designed a computer simulation program, into which he then imported and assessed the available original flight data from tests in the 1940s, along with all the current flight test data.
 
His Master’s thesis was awarded the top grade of 1 – very good – by the university.   We would like to thank him for the work he did at the Aviation Museum and wish him all the best for the career he is about to begin.

Bachelor’s thesis on Messerschmitt Me 262 topics ...

Benjamin Detter’s Bachelor’s thesis focused on the new engines that have been built into the Me 262. The title of his thesis was “The Integration of GE CJ 610-9 Engines in the Me 262 – Flow Characteristics of Bleed-Ports in the Inlet Periphery”. His thesis was awarded the top grade of 1 – very good – by the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (Ingolstadt University of Applied Sciences), Mechanical Engineering Faculty, Aeronautical Engineering program, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ludwig König and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Erol Özger.

Benjamin Detter was an intern and a student trainee at the Aviation Museum. In collaboration with other students, he worked successfully on such projects as “The ME 262 Two-Seater Cabin Roof” and “The ME 262 Two-Seater Shell”, which he then, under the supervision of qualified personnel, submitted for approval by the prototype inspection engineers.

We would like to thank him for his dedication to the work at the Aviation Museum and wish him all the best for his future career.

Bachelor’s thesis on engine starting systems ...

Yannic Marzog’s Bachelor’s thesis focused on “The Development of Starting Units for Aircraft Engines from 1920 until the Present Day, with the Emphasis on the Recovery of the Functional Efficiency of a Riedel Starter for a JUMO 004 Engine”. His thesis was awarded the top grade of 1 – very good – by the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (Ingolstadt University of Applied Sciences), Mechanical Engineering Faculty, Aeronautical Engineering program, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ludwig König and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uli Bürger.

As an intern and a student trainee at the Aviation Museum Yannic Marzog successfully contributed to the running of the Messerschmidt Aviation Museum. His main focus was on supporting the remodelling of the Me 108 cockpit, instruments panel and interior design, check out the blog and features area for the Me 108 cockpit on the homepage.


The team at the Messerschmidt Aviation Museum would like to thank him for his dedication to the work at the Aviation Museum and wish him all the best for his future career.

Jens is passionate about Messerschmitt aircraft
... above all their historical value, the elegance and performance of the technology of that time and the need to preserve these rare airworthy planes.

Jens has a commercial pilot’s license (CPL) and is a qualified flight instructor. He has notched up over 250 flying hours (as at September 2014) in over 25 different types of aircraft.
