Description of the organization

Czech Technical University in Prague is one of the largest universities in the Czech Republic and the oldest non-military technical university in Europe established in 1707. CTU has 8 faculties and offers 128 degree programs in Czech and 87 in English, hosting 20 000+ students supported by 2700 academic and administrative staff.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering of CTU belongs to the largest faculty. Over the years, graduates from the school have created engineering works that have laid grounds for the school's famous historical tradition. Keeping with the tradition of excellence, today's graduates exhibit a high quality of engineering craftsmanship and skills. The academic community comprises approximately 5500 students and 400 teaching and research staff.

Department (s) involved in the project Department of Mechanics is active in teaching and research of concrete and composite materials, as well as numerical methods in mechanics. This development ranges from micro-scale material models to macro-scale models involving complex multi-physics phenomena at different scales. The experimental facilities complement the numerical simulations and provide valuable validation and verification data. The department is actively developing and maintaining several open-source simulation tools that have been accepted by research community worldwide (OOFEM, T3D, SIFEL).

Department of Concrete and Masonry Structures is active in teaching and research of concrete structural design and concrete technology, life cycle assessment, durability assurance, extreme situations, rehabilitation and retrofit, supported by numerical tools also comprising soft computing. The experimental facilities focus on analyses of material behavior as well as on response of structural members to complex boundary conditions, both mechanical and environmental.
