The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering impresses with its scientific expertise and its diversity of methods in the field of conventional civil engineering. A central role is played by new technologies such as computer-aided simulation models and solutions for fast and resource-efficient construction – topics that will have a lasting impact on the future of civil engineering.
As part of the Collaborative Research Center 837, numerical models, computer-aided simulation methods and design concepts are being developed that realistically represent the complex interactions between subsoil, shield machine, support measures, tunnel construction, lining, tunneling and excavation processes as well as construction operations in computational models.
The aim of the priority program is to develop basic scientific methods for the production of partially adaptive modules from high-performance concrete in industrial flow production. The modules should have series character and enable rapid construction. Visual individuality of the composite structure shall be preserved, so that scalable, adaptive and over the life cycle alterable modules and suitable production concepts are sought.
