An overview of our areas of expertise

Areas of Expertise

 

Acoustics

Noise is a typical product of technological progress that in many cases can only be reduced or eliminated by developing innovative technologies. A broad focus that covers multiple topics is the starting point for interdisciplinary research and development.  

 

Building Chemistry, Building Biology, Hygiene

The focus lies on research of chemical, sensory, concrete- engineering-related, biological and hygienic problems occurring in the interiors and exteriors of buildings.  

 

Energy Efficiency and Indoor Climate

The department carries out R&D into improving energy efficient living, working and building. These activities include ensuring user-friendly indoor environments.

 

 

Life Cycle Engineering

The focus is upon methods in sustainability assessment. Specific projects pursue life-cycle-related topics involving overriding questions in the areas of technical feasibility, capacities, infrastructure and materials management.  

 

Hygrothermics

The department specializes in the analysis of transient hygrothermal behavior of building materials, building components and constructions. Amongst others this includes the conduct of laboratory materials testing and outdoor tests under defined conditions.
