For the Alfred-Wegener-Institut Helmholtz-Zentrum für Polar- und Meeresforschung we developed a web-based platform for a unified naming of scientific device types used on German research vessels. Device types may be added and updated, may be reviewed and applied by curators and finally downloaded as XML lists from the research vessels themselves for speaking a unique "language". The project was implemented with the PHP Symfony framework and MySQL database.
By order of WeserWind GmbH Offshore Construction Georgsmarienhütte we developed a web-based intranet application to calculate anode masses for offshore constructions. Sacrificial anodes are used to protect offshore steel constructions from corrosion. Our application calculated the required amount of anode masses to protect a given metal area with given coating for a given lifetime on basis of several corrosion protection norms.
