With four chairs, its own testing facility and the Earthquake Damage Analysis Centre (EDAC), the Institute of Structural Engineering (IKI) at the Faculty of Civil Engineering investigates decisive new processes and methods for contemporary supporting structures, such as innovative glass-based compounds and new methods in wood and masonry construction.
The scientific work at the Institute of Structural Mechanics (ISM) focuses on the design of new, efficient and robust simulation methods, which can be used to predict the responses of supporting structures under various loads, the development of experimental methods for the dynamic analysis of supporting structures as well as the development of numerical methods to support the design of new materials.
The Bauhaus-Institute for Infrastructure Solutions (b.is) aims to strengthen the cooperation of the university’s research teams in Urban Water Management and Sanitation, Biotechnology in Resources Management, Transport System Planning and Urban Energy Systems in the areas of teaching, research and consultancy work. This encompasses the further development of degree programmes, joint doctorate colloquia and joint research and development activities.
Head of institute: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Uwe Plank-Wiedenbeck(Chair of Transport System Planning)
The researchers at the Institute of Mathematics/Building Physics (IMP) develop analytical and numerical solutions and experimental analyses of mathematical and building-physical problems in civil engineering. The main areas of research include modelling, simulation and visualisation of the underlying processes and the development of efficient, customised solutions.
