Model Validation and Simulation
Graduate Courses for Structural Engineering Applications
The past decade has seen a rapid development of numerical methods and sophisticated modelling in different areas of civil engineering, especially in constructions for a sustainable environment. Both scientific approaches and practical solutions using recent developments of data acquisition and data management related to structural engineering and earth sciences are of major interest. Advanced education has to consider that most of the challenging future constructions will require further theoretical and practical developments in a close collaboration of engineering practice and research. The Bauhaus Summer School series provides an international forum for such an exchange of methods and skills related to the interaction between different disciplines of modern engineering science.
