Organization profile

Profile Information

The Institute of Applied Mechanics is responsible for the basic mechanics education for Civil Engineering Sciences, Electrical Engineering, Chemical and Process Engineering and Technomathematics. Additionally, advanced lectures on Continuum mechanics, Theory of materials, Multibody Dynamics, Systems of nonlinear equations and Boundary element methods are offered. The research topics at the institute are: - Numerical simulation of wave propagation phenomena (Poroelastic Boundary Element Methods (BEM), Iterative/Mortar coupling FEM/BEM, Infinite poroelastic FEM) - Material modelling (Granular materials, Geo-synthetics, Auxetic material behaviour, Homogenisation) - Dynamics and optimisation (Minimisation of friction losses (ViF), multibody dynamics) Details on these research areas may be found at the homepage of the institute http://www.mech.tugraz.at. Short Description: The Institute of Applied Mechanics represents research and teaching in Mechanics at the department of civil engineering. Particularly, the research is focused on the simulation of wave propagation phenomena, the modeling of porous and granular media, and dynamics with friction.
