RISE covers different research areas in the field of mechanics of structures, building components and materials, rock mechanics and engineering, structural dynamics, protective structures and buildings.
We focus on the development and use of advanced experimental and computational tools: very-small to very-large-scale testing facilities, optical measurements and non-destructive testing techniques, advanced finite element and discrete element simulations.
Our mission is to contribute to the development of the next generation of sustainable, innovative, high-performance buildings and infrastructures, by increasing the knowledge and safety level related to their use. We study solutions for existing ageing structures, by investigating their properties and reuse.
We are open to collaborative projects with the industry, universities and other research-active organisations and individuals willing to explore with us new areas of research and development on topics related to buildings and infrastructures.
We follow the principles for Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable data - FAIR. We value the open sharing of the research data as an important contribution to the impact, transparency and reproducibility of the scientific results achieved during our projects.
