The Department of Structural Mechanics lectures subjects covering the theoretical background for static and dynamic analyses of civil engineering structures including Sta­tics, Structural Mechanics, Dynamics of Struc­tures, Theories of Elasticity and Plasticity, Rheology, Non-Linear Mechanics and Numerical Methods in Structural Mechanics.

The research activities of the Department are aimed at problems such as structure-sub-grade interaction, contact problems, optimal design of structures, material and geometric nonlinear analysis of structures, high-rise bu­ildings loaded by wind and seismic effects, nuclear power plants safety and reliability, bio-mechanics. Laboratory provides facilities for the optical and tensometric analysis of defor­mations caused by static and dynamic load.

The Department's staff cooperates at crea­tion of codes for structures loaded by wind and seismic effects. Many expertises of princi­pal constructions have been elaborated by the department.

The Department is licensed user of ANSYS software, one of the worlds three biggest soft­ware systems focused on structural, thermal, fluid flow, acoustic and coupled-field linear and nonlinear analysis and design optimisation.
