Software at the Institute of Structural Analysis

The institute has a focus on simulations methods for challenging applications in solid and fluid mechanics. These methods are inseperably linked to the use of modern computers. The institute develops several software tools that are used in teaching as well as in research. Some of these tools are free for download, others are commercially available.
