The activities of the unit focus on teaching and both basic and applied research in the fields of strength of materials and structural analysis and related numerical methods in the areas of Computational Mechanics.

The main emphasis is on the development and the application of models for the numerical simulation of the nonlinear load carrying behavior of structures and the validation of numerical models by experimental methods.

  


 

The Unit for Strength of Materials and Structural Analysis

  • is a member of the testing laboratory TVFA (Technische Versuchs- und Forschungsanstalt) of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences
  • it collaborates with the research center Computational Engineering, being one of four research centers of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences
  • it works in the research area Scientific Computing
  • and participates in the doctorate programme Computational Interdisciplinary Modelling. The latter is a joint doctorate programme, which is supported by several members of the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Physics, the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and members of the Private University of Health Sciences, Medical Informatics and Technology in Hall/Tyrol.
