General information

An essential requirement for the understanding of load bearing mechanisms in materials as well as for the development of new innovative material models are experimental analyses of these materials. These analyses in turn, require a basic mechanical understanding. In this course, the students will learn about the most important measuring methods for force, voltage and deformation measurement on different scales as well as methods (partly numerical) for the material parameter identification/evaluation. The focus of this course is the independent realisation of experiments by the students. In the lecture (1 SWS) the theoretical fundamentals of measurement methods as well as parameter identification methods are briefly taught before the students carry out extensive experimental examinations within the framework of laboratory exercises (2 SWS).


  • Different types of measurement methods
  • Optical measurement methods
  • Different material testing methods
  • Scale- and field-dependent measurement methods, multiscale/multifield measurement methods
  • Methods of parameter identification
  • Basics of statistics
  • Application of material parameters in material models



Further information/lecture notes will be available on StudIp at the beginning of the lectures
