Teaching

Teaching

Our courses cover the analysis of structures composed by beams and trusses. Furthermore, the theory of shells, plates and three-dimensional solids is taught including the approximation by simulation methods.

The Institute of Structural Analysis

The Institute of Structural Analysis at Graz University of Technology was founded in 1912 and was just recently celebrating its 100th anniversary. Structural analysis plays a major role in the education and practice of civil engineers - no matter whether constructions are built in wood, concrete or steel. The courses of the institute cover the whole span from conventional calculations to computer-based simulation methods such as the Finite Element Method. Computer simulations are in the focus of the research of the institute.

Further general information about the institute are provided under contact, location and arrival, and people.
