Competence Centre of Building Technology and Structural Design (CC2)       
 
Competence:

Teaching

The practicing architect, designer and engineer is being exposed to various disciplines and specializations in his day to day planning activities. A realized project is the result of a holistic approach. Thus imparting a thorough knowledge of all involved disciplines is essential to the student’s education and has crucial impact on his future planning abilities.

The Chair of Structural Design provides the students with a solid knowledge on structural systems. The education expands from building foundations to wide span and high rise structures with a focus on a structural design approach and its respective tools.The teaching of students in the field of structural design is undertaken with a specific emphasis on generating conceptual understanding, systematic thinking and practical knowledge.Courses and modules in the field of structural design are core parts of the Bachelor Program of Architecture and Construction Technology and Management such as the Master Program of Architecture.

courses:

  • Theory and Design of Structures I - IV (Architecture)
  • Advanced Building Structures (Architecture)
  • Engineering Mechanics (COTM)
  • Strength of Materials (COTM)
  • Theory of Structures (COTM)
  • Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures (COTM)
  • Design of Steel and Timber Structures (COTM)

Research:

Research activities are undertaken in the fields of competence with an emphasis on innovative and appropriate construction materials and systems in the Sub Saharan context. Research programs are established in close collaboration with related chairs of the competence center gaining synergy effects and enhancing a sustainable impact of research results

Topics: Alternative construction materials, bamboo structures, composite materials, modular structural systems, lightweight structures, temporary structures, historical structures, computer applications, structural optimization, etc.The chair offers to all interested researcher an opportunity for support in higher studies as Master and PhD thesis.

ongoing research activities:

  • Lightweight aggregate concrete in ribbed slab construction
  • Bamboo shell structures (applied research on implemented structures)
  • Bamboo composites as a construction material (guideline for modular housing systems of locally produced bamboo composite materials)
