Teaching and research unit Head Overview
Structural Concrete, IMB Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Josef Hegger

The development of material models and design principles for new composite materials of concrete and metallic / non-metallic reinforcements is the focus of research.

Steel and Lightweight Metal Construction, STB Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Feldmann The institute focuses on the research and development of load-bearing structures, bridges, and buildings in steel, composite steel, wood, and glass as well as on issues relating to load-bearing bonded joints and wind engineering.
Sustainable Metal Building Envelopes, STB Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus Kuhnhenne

Central aspects of the research are the integral investigation, evaluation, and optimization of lightweight metal construction in terms of structural design, building physics, and sustainability using, among other things, digital methods and procedures.

Building Materials – Construction Materials, ibac Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Matschei

Research in the field of structural materials focuses on textile and fiber concrete, ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC), the mechanical and physical properties of concrete, and durability.

Building Materials – Polymercomposites in Construction, ibac Univ.-Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Oliver Weichold

In this field of teaching and research, polymer materials are developed for various fields of application. One focus lies within bio-based building materials.

Building Materials – Environmental Compatibility, ibac Juniorprofessorin Dr.-Ing. Anya Vollpracht

The research focus of the junior professorship is the leaching behavior of various building materials in various applications, as well as the environmental aspect of waste recovery and recycling.
