Faculty of Civil Engineering - Scientific research


The Faculty of Civil Engineering conducts research in the following fields of study:

  • structures and shells theory, application of computer algebra in mechanics, computer methods in theory of structures, especially FEM, xFEM and FEM’s computer programs: Autodesk® Robot, Simula® Abaqus, numerical analysis of structures (particularly building structures) subject to static and dynamic loads, as well as those exposed to the effects of mining subsidence and mining tremors, computer simulation of earthquakes, determination of dynamic resistance of structures, heat exchange, numerical modelling of heat transfer, thermal properties of build materials, inverse heat transfer problems,
  • mechanics of materials: incremental theory of plasticity, damage mechanics, etc. Structure modelling using nonlinear material models,
  • processes of physic, heat and moisture transport in the building envelope, thermal protection of buildings, building mycology,
  • passive buildings, energy and environment simulation of building performance - Energy Plus, ESP-r, MES, CFD, building physics, sustainable buildings,
  • environmental and building acoustics, laboratory and field measurement of airborne sound insulation of wall and building elements. Laboratory and field measurement of the impact of sound insulation in buildings, laboratory measurement of the sound absorption coefficient in materials and objects,
  • concrete, masonry, composite and timber structures; non-destructive and destructive testing of materials and structures; reinforcement of different types of structures (including historical heritage constructions) – also by using composite materials; construction works in the coal mine area; normalization in structural design; diagnosis of structural elements,
  • diagnostics of concrete structures corrosion, electrochemical corrosion test, electrochemical regeneration of concrete, assessment of structures’ durability,
