About Chair of Mechanics

About the Chair of Mechanics

The Chair’s research activity is mainly focused on basic research with applications in nonlinear mechanics of composite beams, glulam timber beams, steel, reinforced concrete and composite structures at high temperatures, polymer structures, nonlinear dynamics of spatial structures and statistical methods, and reliability of structures. In all these areas the Chair has established close cooperation with researchers from renowned institutions such as the VTT Institute in Finland and the ITMW Institute in Germany, the Technical University in Prague, the University in Boras in Sweden, and the University in Rijeka in Croatia. An important feature of our Chair is high quality and diverse publishing activity. We regularly report on the results of our work in top international journals, as well as at national and international scientific conferences.

Members of the Chair of Mechanics participate in projects for the economic and national administration, developing improved timber glulam structures, designing spatial polymer devices, fire safety of structures and construction technologies. In this way we keep close contact with the professional sphere and contribute to the spreading and use of research results in civil engineering and in technical profession in general.
