Structural Diagnostics & Analysis Research Group
The research group was established in 2010 at the University of Pécs, Faculty of Engineering with members from the departments of Structural Engineering and Construction Materials unifying some of the laboratory facilities of these departments.
The principal objectives of the research group are to carry out research targeted towards the analysis of the degradation processes of engineering structures, to analyse the effectiveness of various diagnostic and testing methods on damage identification, structural condition assessment and to develop numerical methods for the reliability analysis and residual life expectancy of structures. The results of the research activities are continuously integrated with the teaching course materials.
- Optimised diagnostic procedures of masonry structures
- Condition assessment of masonry bridges and buildings using structural diagnostics and modelling tools
- Modelling of degradation processes of structures
- Diagnostic procedures for the rehabilitation of structures
Leader of the Research Group: Dr. Zoltán Orbán, Ph.D.
