Scientific Research Areas
The Institute of Engineering Mechanics and Structural Mechanics and the Laboratory for Computational Engineering are concerned with basic research, applied research and developement projects. This will cooperate with partners from academia, industry, and administration. Theory and numerical simulations are areas of operation in which the methods are located. Beginning with the development of material laws for highly dynamic stress components and entire structures continue to be studied for their structural behavior.
The structual studies are not confined only to buildings but also in the fields of mechanical engineering and systems engineering and carried out in the air and space engineering and sporting goods.
Equally interesting for us are the developements in communications technology. They are used in support of university teaching in the training and the "long-distance-learning".
