The Department responsibilities mainly cover the load-bearing capacity assessments and fracture of concrete, reinforced concrete (RC), steel, composite, timber and material composite structures under quasi-static, dynamic and fatigue conditions, micro-structure of building materials, silo structures and granular flow behaviour, heat and mass transfer through building structural elements, energy-saving buildings and self-balanced building systems. The Department is experiencedin experimental research works and numerical computations based on FEM, XFEM, DEM and CFD methods. Several scientific research works were performed in the framework of national and international projects co-financed by the National Science Centre, National Centre for Research and Development and European Union. The domain of qualification and professional certificates of Department workers supplemented by laboratory equipment makes it possible to offer a vast rangeof industry-oriented design-expert services. The details on scientific research achievements of the Department workersare available at the MOST Wiedzy website.
