Structural Reliability

We know how to add innovation in the design, development and maintenance of durable and safe structures due to our broad knowledge on risk analysis, dynamics, structural and physical behaviour of concrete, steel and aluminium as well as the durability of concrete.

Competences:

  • Meassurement and prediction of vibration and low frequent noise impact on the built environment
  • Design of measures to reduce vibrations and low frequent noise in structures
  • Building acoustics in relation to light weight buuilding structures
  • Assessment of structural safety of infrastructural works and buildings
  • Inspection and monitoring of concrete structures
  • Durability predictions and service life designof structures
  • Microscopy of building materials
  • Evaluation of damage and design of repair systems for structures
  • (Quantitative) risk analyses for the built environment including safety aspects
  • Assessment of flood risks
  • Functional specification of design requirements for complex building projects
