The research focus of the chair is on fundamental research with special regard to practical application. The aim is to close existing gaps between scientific research and industrial practice, reflecting the constantly changing process technologies and requirements for materials and components:

  • Material modelling and failure analysis

    • also for 3D textile reinforcements
    • new fibre and matrix materials
    • consideration of 3-axial stress states
    • standardization of analysis methods

  • Multi-scale modelling of complex structures
  • Realistic structural analysis under complex loading
  • Material-appropriate structural design and optimization
  • Fatigue behaviour of composite materials
