Institute information tour


As part of the annual institute information tour during orientation week, our institute once again introduced itself to the new students. The main focus was on the two topics glass and dynamics. The first-year students were able to get a comprehensive insight into the recently opened Glass Competence Centre. During the tour, we explained our research topics and special features of glass as a material and demonstrated them in small experiments. Afterwards, we showed our experimental bridge for the investigation of human-structure interaction (HumVib bridge). Here we were able to illustrate some structural dynamic effects. The students were allowed to excite the bridge in different ways and thus experience building dynamics and human-structure interaction on their own bodies.
