Institute of Solid Mechanics, Mechatronics and Biomechanics

The institute mainly focuses on analyses of consistency, compactness, dynamics and life of machine structures and units, proposals and optimisation of mechatronic systems, biomechanics and applied mechanics in general. We perform computational and experimental analyses with the aim of identifying causes of failures, incidents or malfunctions in the assessed technological equipment. In this area, we also offer cooperation in the design and optimisation of new structures. For more information, please visit http://www.umt.fme.vutbr.cz/en/institute/contact.html and http://mechlab.fme.vutbr.cz/en.

We offer the following:

  • Computational and experimental analysis of stress, fatigue and strength of design of mechanical parts and systems
