AdMaS - Advanced Materials, Structures and Technologies
Project „Centre AdMaS - Advanced Materials, Structures and Technologies“ was prepared and submitted by the Faculty of Civil Engineering BUT in 2009.
Within Operational Programme Research and Development for Innovations the regional AdMaS Centre is being built as a new part of the Faculty of Civil Engineering BUT. AdMaS is focused on research, development and application of advanced materials, structures and technologies (not only) in building, transport systems and city and landscape infrastructure.
Centre is being equipped with hi-tech equipment thanks to subsidies of almost 300 mil. CZK. The aim is to renew and develop experimental and computational platform in the field of civil engineering by establishing new laboratories equipped with suitable experimental and computational technologies.
AdMaS Centre consists of two major research programmes that are further divided to research groups.
- Research programme VP1: Development of advanced materials
- Building materials technologies
- Microstructure of building materials and non-destructive testing
- Research programme VP2: Development of advanced structures and technologies
- Structures and transportation engineering
- EGAR - Environment and Geo (geotechnics and geodesy) Applied technological Research
- Mathematic modeling
