Dr. Salbrechter has conducted extensive investigations under his dissertation on the derivation of parameter-based models for the simulation of the heat input and the consumption of the engine warm-up of cars. The DoE-based and especially the physically derived model of the consumption and the heat input show excellent results for the studied engine types in different test-cycles and pre-calibrations. Altogether this makes a universal simulation, which can also take differences in engine application, of the engine warm-up into consideration. The requirement of expensive and time-consuming test bed experiments can be significantly reduced with this method.

In 2015 his dissertation was awarded the second place at the Fachverbands-Jubiläumsstiftung.
