The subjects of mechanics and structural analysis are represented by the Chairs of Building Mechanics and Structural Analysis. A laboratory for engineering informatics is affiliated to our institute. The international orientation in research and teaching (cooperations, visiting professors, semesters abroad) is one of our main objectives. Professional contacts are intensified by numerous national and international memberships.



Our institute is involved in teaching throughout all study trimesters. The subjects Mechanics I to IV are taught in the basic course of study, and areas based on them - such as building dynamics - are taught in the main and advanced studies. There, structural analysis is also predominantly represented with its canon of subjects. All common analytical and numerical methods that are important for the static and dynamic calculation of load-bearing structures are taught. The variety of the taught methods of analysis includes, among others, strength theory, material mechanics, shell theory, stability theory, structural dynamics, finite element method and load capacity theory.


Current research projects are temperature shock analyses, structural dynamics, non-linear rope oscillations, non-linear kinetic shell stability, bridge carrying behavior, material laws (e. g. at high pressures and distortion rates), structural concepts, fine element developments, multimedia in statics, vibration protection.
