Ever since, load-carrying structures were required to be highly functional, cost efficient and environmentally compatible. Likewise, this applies to civil and mechanical engineering as well as to aerospace.
New composite materials, steady increase of computer performance and miniaturisation of sensors and electronics decisively influence the development trends for future load-carrying structures. Therefore, these structures will be
- lightweight and
The Institute of Structural Analysis at Leibniz Universität Hannover aims at these strategic objectives. Its research is focused on the areas of vibrations and composites.
