Faculty of Engineering Sciences - Department of Basic Sciences in Engineering Sciences
Unit of Strength of Materials and Structural Analysis
Office opening hours:
Monday to Friday, 08:30-11:30 (with advance reservation)
The scientific topics dealt with at the Department of Strength of Materials and Structural Analysis include teaching, applied research and basic research in the fields of analytical, numerical and experimental methods of strength of materials and structural analysis.
The focus is on the development and application of calculation methods for the numerical simulation of the non-linear behaviour of buildings and structures and the validation of the numerical calculation models using experimental methods.
The Unit of Strength of Materials and Structural Analysis
- is a member of the 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 in the Research Area Scientific Computing
- it participates in the Doctoral Programme Computational Interdisciplinary Modelling (DK CIM). The latter is a joint doctorate programme, which is supported by several members of the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Physics and the Faculty of Engineering Sciences
- and it is affiliated with the MSCA COFUND Doctoral Programme DOCC: Dynamics of Complex Continua, which is an interdisciplinary Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND doctoral programme at the University of Innsbruck with a focus on modelling and simulation of complex dynamical continuum systems in research fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, atmospheric sciences, material and engineering sciences, and computer science.
