High performance concrete and dual-phase-steels, ceramics and fibre-reinforced materials - these complex materials play an important role at the Institute of Mechanics and Shell Structures. In many cases the accurate modelling of these materials as it is required for high-tech applications is a challenge. At the institute computational methods are developed that can be used to predict the often multyphysical behaviour of modern materials on different scales and in a multiscale sense. The research projects at the institute are categorised into the following five research fields:
