Courses, final assignments, consultation hours, ... of the Chair of Continuum Mechanics


We offer courses for the study programs Civil Engineering, Computational Mechanics of Materials and Structures (COMMAS), Real Estate Engineering and Management, Medical Engineering, Simulation Technology, Technical Education Teaching Qualification, Technically oriented Business Administration and Environmental Engineering.

The fundamental course Engineering Mechanics, which is obligatory for many study programs, introduces into a continuum mechanical description of the (elasto)statics, strength theory and kinetics of rigid bodies and thus forms the basis for further courses of the chair in the direction of continuum and fluid mechanics.

In addition to the courses on Engineering Mechanics in the Bachelor's programs, the courses on Advanced Mechanics provide comprehensive insights into the continuum mechanical representation and numerical treatment of material models for single- and multiphase materials. Thermodynamic effects can easily be included into the theoretical description; the characterization of multiphase materials is implemented by the so-called Theory of Porous Media (TPM).

Supplementary modules dealing with aspects of biomechanics, earthquake stress, viscoelasticity and plasticity theory as well as fluid mechanics round off the course offerings and build a bridge to current issues in research and practice.

Consultation hours

Due to the COVID-19 virus, it is currently not possible to offer on-site consultation hours at the institute - please contact us regarding possible alternative formats!

In general, all employees offer consultation hours by appointment. Special consultation hours for individual courses are usually communicated separately via the assigned Ilias course. If you have organizational problems, you are welcome to contact the assistants of the courses directly by phone or e-mail.
