Computational analysis of structures
Nowadays computational analysis is basic tool in structural engineering. In the last decades several numerical methods have been developed. It turns out that for cutting edge applications and high performance computing the computational cost is a bottleneck. This motivates the Chair of Structural Analysis and Dynamics to deal with computational modelling and numerical methods for structural analysis. The aim is to enhance existing or to develop new methods to improve the analysis of spatial thin structures, like shell and beam structures. Here, the Finite Element Method and the Isogeometric Analysis are in the focus of research.
