The institute offers a broad research spectrum with its two departments "Materials and Construction" and Fastening- and Strengthening Methods"
Department Materials and Construction
Department Fastening and Strengthening Methods
Overview of current research activities:
- Load bearing behavior of anchors and adhesive bonding
Investigations on the behavior of various anchor systems in concrete and masonry: cast-in anchors and anchor channels, post-installed anchors as adhesive bonded anchors, expansion anchors undercut anchors
- Bond behavior of reinforcement and anchorage
Improvement of testing procedures by development of new methods (beam-end-test) under various applications as static and dynamic loading, environmental influences and special loadings
- Strengthening methods for reinforced concrete structures
- Hazard Engineering
