In the Department of 'Mechanics of Materials and Constructions' (MEMC) fundamental and applied research is developed on the following themes: 1. Durability - Reliability of polymer based composite systems; 2. Mixed numerical-experimental techniques or inverse methods; 3. Mineral polymers and their composites; 4. Damage mechanics on material and structural levels; 5. Non-destructive testing and experimental mechanics; 6. Design and analysis of constructions; 7. Renovation of buildings and civil engineering constructions. Software and hardware is available for the research on these themes. In the applications, international relations and interactions with industry are a permanent incentive for future developments.
