Department of Structural Mechanics

The Department of Structural Statics and Strength of Materials was first established in 1943 encompassing all the topics related to structural design and calculus. Nowadays, it is called Department of Structural Mechanics. The aim of the department is to provide key knowledge in the field of structural engineering for both undergraduate and graduate study programs. The prospective students can become skilled in, but not limited to: the use of computers and computer software packages for structural analysis, numerical modelling of civil engineering structures, assessment of the stress and strain state in structural elements, using experimental investigations and numerical simulations to assess the behaviour of structural elements under various loading conditions, identifying the best suited rehabilitation techniques for civil engineering structures in order to ensure the safety of the inhabitants and to avoid/reduce losses in case of natural disasters.

The department has experts in teaching the following topics:

  • Strength of Materials
  • Theory of Elasticity and Plasticity
  • Statics, Stability and Structural Dynamics
  • Earthquake Engineering
  • Use of Computers
  • Computer Assisted Design
  • Numerical Methods in Engineering
  • Computer Programming Languages
  • Structural Safety Assessment and Rehabilitation

The academic staff working at the Department ofStructural Mechanics are well known experts in Romania and abroad and are currently lecturing at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Building Services, Faculty of Hydrotechnical Engineering, London City University, a.s.o. The Ph.D. supervisors ensure a higher education and scientific performance of graduate civil engineers and architects. The academics are also members of RCCE – Research Centre in Civil Engineering, being rated as a type B research centre by the Romanian Authority for Research (CNCSIS). Many of the department members are certified experts, project supervisors, and have been selected to become members of national professional associations (AGIR, AICPS, ARIS, SIAC) and even international associations or societies (CIB, FIP, ASCE, RILEM, WCEE, SMIRT).

The research works conducted within the department have focused on: experimental investigations of scaled structural models using photo-elasticity techniques, static and dynamic soil – foundation – structure interaction, development of new or simplified design methods, development of structural analysis computer programs, post-elastic analysis and design of civil engineering structures, analytical and experimental identification of dynamic systems, seismic design of various classes of structures, with or without base isolation, subjected to earthquake loads, experimental investigations on structural elements and scaled models of entire structures subjected to static and dynamic loads.
