Department of Applied & Numerical Mechanics

The Department of Applied & Numerical Mechanics is responsible for technical education in the fields of solid mechanics, vibration engineering and computer-aided design. A laboratory for vibration measurement, acoustics and simulation of hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) systems is affiliated with it. Our research work includes the development of finite elements, simulations of complex mechatronic systems and modelling of wearing processes by friction.

Teaching

In the bachelor's programme, our teaching covers the following topics: basics of technical mechanics (statics, strength theory, kinetics, kinematics, thermodynamics), introduction to simulation techniques, basics of the finite element method, introduction to design and computer-aided design (CAD).

In the master’s programmes, we offer the following contents: dynamics of multi-body systems, modal analysis, wave propagation and acoustics, identification and simulation of complex mechatronic systems, hardware-in-the-loop simulations, advanced finite element methods and computational fluid dynamics.
