Two laboratories are available to the Chair of Structural Mechanics for research and teaching. Extensive information on the respective equipment can be found on the corresponding laboratory pages.

The laboratory for vibration measurement technology and lightweight construction applications is located in the Verkehrstechnik-Halle (VTH) and has an area of about 160 m². The focus in the field of vibration measurement technology is on the identification and evaluation of dynamic processes with regard to vibrations in structures, borne noise sound/acoustics as well as service life and operational stability, whereby experimental and computational methods are used equally. The field of lightweight construction applications offers the possibility to produce lightweight structures (fibre composite construction, sandwich structures) by means of hand lamination as well as to carry out component tests. All common fibre types (glass, aramid, carbon fibres) can be processed.

The laboratory for FEM simulations provides powerful tools for modelling, simulation and optimisation. The focus is on the finite element method, whereby a wide variety of non-linear field problems, such as temperature field, deformation or stress calculations, can be carried out. In addition, it is also possible to work on "multiphysics" problems, especially in the field of fluid-structure interaction (FSI).
