Welcome to the Institute of Technical Mechanics!
Engineering mechanics provide important foundations for numerous engineering subjects; at the JKU Linz mainly students of mechatronics and plastics technology are supervised. In the first and second semester we offer comprehensive introductions in kinematics, statics, strength theory and dynamics. Further courses cover the experimental and numerical methods of mechanics, continuum and structure mechanics as well as multi-field theories. For teaching and research, a modern vibration and sound measurement laboratory and powerful computer systems are available. Special attention is paid to the implementation of funded, evaluated research projects; the institute is also available as a partner for the implementation of industrial vibration and sound measurement tasks.
