Department history :

The Department of Engineering Mechanics was founded at the same time as the Faculty, in 1960. The scientific, teaching and professional activity of the Department has developed through time and today is based on non-linear numerical, especially finite-element and experimental analysis of constructions and engines, in the fields of elastomechanics and plastomechanics, viscoplasticity, stability, thermomechanics, dynamics and vibrations, durability and reliability, optimization in design and production, plastic metal forming, kinematics and dynamics of the robot and acoustics. The newest softwares such as Patran/Nastran, Actran, Dytran, Fatigue, Ideas, as well as personally created softwares offer a great possibility in numerical modelling and in response analysis of the structures and machines in various service performances.

The members of the Department have published a great number of scientific works in prestigious international and national journals, presented papers at international and national conferences and published over 20 books and textbooks among which some abroad. The complete teaching activity of the Department employs their own published textbooks. A great number of members of the Department have earned the academic title of Doctor of Science and Master of Science, and have taken an active part in all forms of scientific-teaching activity at postgraduate doctoral study, at university and vocational studies of Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture and Electrical Engineering. The Department has consistently worked on scientific research projects financed by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport of the Republic of Croatia.

It maintains intensive cooperation with related Departments of the Faculties in Vienna, Brno, Prague, Budapest, Kaiserslautern, Darmstadt, Zlin, Trnava, Cluj-Napoca, Ljubljana, Maribor, Zagreb, Split, Slavonski Brod and Mostar. The activities of the Department are directed also towards a collaboration with the economy, in the field of experimental testing and numerical analysis of structures and machines.
