The main areas of research and group leaders are

There are no rigid boundaries between groups; they signify only centres of competence. Several existing projects already include methods and techniques of more than one group. Many other synergies are expected in the future.


  • Promote analytic and intuitive understanding of the mechanical behavior of structures.
  • Demonstrate appropriate applications of information technology to young students.
  • Provide courses and documentation on structural monitoring technology, computer aided engineering and structural dynamics to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
  • Offer courses at postgraduate levels on advanced informatics and communication for research engineers
