|Main research interests of Associate Professor Bernhard Pichler are to develop innovative test protocols in the field of experimental mechanics and to exploit the results in the context of structural analysis of civil engineering infrastructure. In this context, multiscale modeling of cementitious materials is an important vehicle. Mechanical properties of interest include the elastic stiffness, creep, strength, and thermal expansion coefficients.|
Institute for Mechanics of Materials and Structures
The Institute for Mechanics of Materials and Structures at TU Wien – Vienna University of Technology enjoys high international reputation in the fields of combined experimental-theoretical research work in engineering mechanics. This includes experimental characterization of microheterogeneous materials at microscopic and macroscopic scales, the development of predictive multiscale material models, and their use in structural simulations. Studied material systems include cementitious materials, wood and wood products, masonry, bone, and biomimetic materials.
