TU Darmstadt

Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) – Institute of Structural Mechanics and Design

The Institute for Structural Mechanics and Design combines research and education in the fields of structural analysis, structural dynamics, materials, facade and structural engineering, in order to achieve consistent, integrative basic knowledge for resource-efficient design and construction. With this vision in mind the institute promotes fundamental theoretical work on mathematical and design-methods, material testing and modeling, numerical simulations, component safety, construction processes as well as applied research and design of structures from the component down to the material level. Energy performance is taken in consideration from an integrated point of view of structural design and materials.
