Contributing to structural use of aluminium in building and civil engineering 

Research at the chair of Aluminium Structures considers the structural properties of aluminium alloys as well as how it is integrated into a wide range of structures. The research contributes to better understanding of structural performance, for example when subjected to fatigue loading or when exposed to fire. The research carried out in this area contributes to an adequate structural application of aluminium in buildings and other structures. This research is intended to make a significant contribution to the structural use of aluminium in building and civil engineering applications.
