Building Materials and Structural Engineering
|Institute of 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.
|Chair for 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 behaviour of various building materials in various applications, as well as the environmental aspect of waste recovery and recycling.
