Division of Solid Mechanics

The goals of the Division of Solid Mechanics is related to the education of students in the basic courses of “Engineering Mechanics”, “Mechanics of Materials”, “Dynamics” and “Machine Dynamics and Vibrations”. On the graduate level the strengthening lies in the lectures of the  “Finite Element Method”and “Continuum Mechanics”. The deepening into these fields supports the requirements in industry that more and more material nonlinearities have to be taken into account into the computation of structures. Exactly here there is the transition to the research objectives of experiments, constitutive modeling, material parameter identification and simulation, where in the latter objective the development of new methods and algorithms is one essential.
