Theoretical and experimental work carried out at the Institute covers several fields which contribute to basic engineering science and to modern technology.
The most important areas of the Institute's expertise include theoretical and applied mechanics, theory of coupled mechanical and physical fields, theoretical, experimental and computational mechanics of materials and structures, acoustoelectronics and medical ultrasound.
Extensive research is also conducted in several other branches of fundamental science and technology, such as: physics and thermodynamics of continua; plasma physics; stochastic dynamics; shock wave propagation in fluids and solids; the effects of laser radiation on metals; mechanical, thermal and electromagnetic effects in fracture and crack propagation; applied computer and information sciences; mechatronics and robotics.
In addition to fundamental research, intensive applied research is conducted at the Institute. The Institute plays an increasingly important role in the development of new technologies, in the construction of research equipment (particularly acoustic instrumentation) and development of modern methods of measurement. Laser shaping technology, ultrasonic stress measurement, acoustic and ultrasonic methods are among the most important achievements of applied research.
