Department of the Built Environment

Applied Mechanics

The chair of Applied Mechanics (AM) examines the mechanical and physical behaviour of materials and structures at various length scales.

Creating new solutions for design and engineering in the built environment

The chair has a strong international reputation in the modelling of failure (plasticity, fracture, damage, phase transformations) and deformation of advanced engineering materials. The research examines and couples the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures at various length scales (macro, micro, nano), in order to improve material characteristics (high strength and toughness, low weight) and to pursue optimal structural and functional performances of applications in the built environment.
