Course 7KP1M0 involves a research project focusing on a pre-described research question, research object or subject, research goal and research method. Before the start of the project several research proposals are uploaded on CANVAS. These proposals are related to specific questions of SED chairs (professors, PhD students) or coming from the structural engineering practice. All research projects start with a literature study. The research method is numerical or experimental. For numerical research advanced FEM software (Ansys) is used. Experimental research is carried out in the Structures Laboratory.
