Jonas Pollaschek studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. In 2014 he began working as a scientific research assistant in the gear department of the Laboratory of Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) in the group for gear design and manufacturing simulation. Pollaschek's fields of research are tooth contact analysis, FE-based optimization and tooth root load carrying capacity of cylindrical gears.

- Inclusion-Based Bending Strength Calculation of Gears (May 2017)
Reduced component weight and ever-increasing power density require a gear design on the border area of material capacity. In order to exploit the potential offered by modern construction materials, calculation methods for component strength must rely on a deeper understanding of fracture and material mechanics in contrast to empirical-analytical approaches.
