DescriptionIMWS is part of the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Technical University of Vienna. The research work at the Institute is characterized by a synthesis of experimental investigation and numerical modeling of the mechanical behavior of materials at different length scales, and by the application of the developed constitutive models to structural analysis. As of December 2008, research projects include: Prediction of macroscopic mechanical properties of wood from microstructure and chemical composition; Mechanical characterization of strand based engineered wood products by means of multiscale modeling; Numerical simulation of timber structures; Mechanical characterization of wood for knowledge-based timber industry. The institute also provides Master and Bachelor level courses.
