Laboratory Biomechanics

The FH Aachen Laboratory Biomechanics is part of the Institute for Bioengineering (IfB) and a member of the Bioengineering Competence Platform NRW. The core competences of the Laboratory Biomechanics are material theory, the development and application of optimisation methods in the Finite Element Method (FEM), with a focus on the following areas:    

  • FEM simulation of bone remodeling processes and structural optimisation,

  • Multi-body simulation (MBS) of the musculoskeletal system and

  • Limit and shakedown analyses with a focus on "design according to analysis methods" and fracture mechanics.

Of particular note is the European project FEM-Based Limit and Shakedown Analysis for Design and Integrity Assessment in European Industry - LISA, which was coordinated by the Laboratory Biomechanics for the Research Centre Jülich (Forschungszentrum Jülich, formerly KFA) and carried out jointly with Electricité de France (EDF) and Siemens/Framatome, among others. In the future, the LISA methodology will be further developed by an international team on the basis of Code_Aster.

Institute of Nano- and Biotechnolgies (INB)

Institut für Nano- und Biotechnologien (INB)

‘Biology meets microelectronics’ - a phrase often quoted in recent times, and one which underlines the increasing importance of inter- and trans-disciplinary research activities. Basic scientific disciplines such as physics, electrical engineering, chemistry, biology and materials science are increasingly seen to overlap common boundaries, so defining the interface of an exciting research environment with a high potential for innovation. In this context, the INB (Institute of Nano and Biotechnologies) at the Aachen University of Applied Sciences aims to combine synergistically its existing expertise in the fields of semiconductor technologies, nano-electronics, silicon-based chemical sensors and biosensors, DNA sensing and nanostructures along with biotechnology (plant and microbiology / bioprocess technology and mammalian cell cultures) and enzyme technology. Six research laboratories will focus their research activities on the pioneering spectrum of nano- and biotechnologies, a broad contemporary research area, fostering new ideas and the design of new products which may change our daily life. More details on the scientific orientation of this expertise within the institute and a description of the laboratories taking part in this work can be foundon our homepage.
