The Structural Mechanics group conducts research in a wide variety of topics all aiming to improve theoretical, numerical and experimental methods for a more sustainable society by improving design, use, maintenance, and re-use of structures and civil engineering systems.
Our work in structural design and extension of service life of existing structures ranges from basic research in structural reliability through efficient design with parametric modelling, improved modelling of environmental and operational loads to building with timber and steel structures.
To achieve our goals we combine our extensive experience in experimental work in the field and laboratory together with excellent theoretical and numerical expertise.
