Thanks to the existing good laboratory infrastructure, the Department of Solid Construction also acts as a competent service provider for questions concerning masonry, concrete, reinforced concrete, steel fiber concrete, prestressed concrete or also combinations of these materials.


We perform linear and nonlinear numerical simulation of load-bearing structures of solid construction. Most recently, this was used to describe the load-bearing behavior of grouted connections used in wind turbines.

Vibration and shock studies

We carry out vibration and shock measurements on site. Independently or on the basis of these measurements we can then perform analytical, experimental and numerical vibration investigations. Furthermore, we undertake a determination of the vibration behavior of components and structures, e.g. in industrial plants, bell towers, bridges with external prestressing, cable-stayed bridges and wind turbines.

Load tests

We perform static and cyclic load tests to determine the load-bearing behavior of large as well as small components and structures from both tried-and-tested and innovative construction methods.
