Institute of Applied Mechanics

Passion for mechanics

The Institute of Applied Mechanics (LTM) consists of a professorship for continuum mechanics, a professorship for structural mechanics, and a research group for com­putational mechanics. Each of the two professorships and the research group covers a subject area of applied mechanics both in research and in teaching. Applied mechanics is a basic subject of engineering sciences and strongly anchored and crosslinked in mechanical engineering. The main concern of applied mechanics is modeling and simulation of technologically relevant materials, processes, and systems.
