Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Abilities for advanced computational modelling of composite materials. Ability to choose a proper computational model for given composite material. Ability to prepare computational models for structures from composite materials.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject is based on a numerical analysis of composite material for building structures. Several approaches for numerical modelling is discussed and results of their use are compared.
