Management and Associates

Axel SielaffDr.-Ing.
Managing Partner

As technical manager Axel Sielaff is your first person to contact. He received his doctoral degree (Dr.-Ing.) from TU Darmstadt (Germany) in the scope of two-phase heat transfer. He took responsibility for the experimental methods and measurement techniques and assume control as group leader of the boiling and evaporation group at TTD.

He is a proven specialist in various aspects of heat transfer as well as experimental investigation and plant optimization. The design and construction of experimental components for the International Space Station (ISS) is just one example.

Martin FreysteinDr.-Ing.
Managing Partner

Martin Freystein is the commercial manager of the company. During his time at TU Darmstadt he investigated the atomization behavior of complex fluids in rotary atomizers. Further he managed several research projects on flow boiling phenomena during zero gravity within the framework of Parabolic Flights of the European Space Agency (ESA).

By his subsequent employment in the energy sector he is a specialist for combined technical, economical and legal issues in the entire energy field.

Felix BrinckmannDr.-Ing.
Senior Engineer and Associate Partner

Felix Brinckmann received his doctoral degree at TU Darmstadt for an experimental and numerical thesis focussing on drying processes. The calculation methods he developed have been implemented into the commercial simulation software ANSYS.

Due to his subsequent employment at a medium-sized automotive supplier and a leading medical-technology company he is our expert regarding product safety, quality assurance as well as standards and guidelines.
