Structural Analysis Vrije Universiteit Brussel

TOPIC A : Mechanical Properties of Composite Materials Systems and their application in mechanical constructions (Long fibre reinforced composite materials) (Cardon A.) - Anisotropic elasticity, plasticity and viscoelasticity, development of numerical models for finite element analysis through experimentation, under controlled temperature, moisture and stress/displacement conditions - Mechanical properties of materials, reinforced with long ...

Department of Structural Engineering and Building Materials Ghent University

The Department of Structural Engineering consists of three research groups, namelyThe Magnel Laboratory is the largest Belgian research centre in the field of concrete technology and concrete structures and has a vast and widely-spread international recognition. It disposes of extensive experimental testing facilities and infrastructures, among which the large strong floor for executing load tests on large-scale elements is a unique instrument. ...

Structural Mechanics Section KU Leuven

Research in the Structural Mechanics Section of the Department of Civil Engineering focuses on the static and dynamic analysis of structures. Five related research lines are developed: (1) vibrations in the built environment, (2) vibration based structural identification and evaluation , (3) building acoustics, (4) shape and topology optimization, and (5) computational structural engineering. Model development is supported by laboratory and ...

Biochemistry, Molecular and Structural Biology KU Leuven

Responsible

Research on four types of functionally active proteins - Copper proteins : hemocyanins (involved in dioxygen binding). - Thiol proteins: metallothioneins (metal detoxication and donation). - Protease inhibitors: alpha -2-macroglobulin homologues. - Regulatory proteins: cytokines (defencesystems against infection). Aim: to determine, after their isolation or possible induction, the composition and the primary to quaternary structure of these ...

Structural chemistry group (STRUCCHEM) University of Antwerp

The Structural Chemistry Group of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Antwerp is a research group which combines expertise on quantum chemistry, organic semiconductors and diffraction in multi¬disciplinary research on the development and implementation quantum chemical methods for the study of large systems, the structure and bonding in chalcogen-nitrogen compounds, the structure of organic molecules in the crystal phase, conjugated ...

Structural Composites and Alloys, Integrity and Nondestructive Testing KU Leuven

Its activities include:

  • Analysing and modelling of microstructure and texture evolution during plastic deformation
  • Deriving physics-based constitutive laws for their mechanical behaviour
  • Developing dedicated characterisation methods for their complex microstructures
  • Participating in the development of innovative deformation processes

Laboratory of Structural Neurobiology KU Leuven

Responsible

The Laboratory of Structural Neurobiology is interested in understanding the structural basis of ion channel function. Ion channels are integral membrane proteins that act as molecular switches of electrochemical signaling in the central nervous system. Our specific goal is to understand the structural determinants of ligand recognition, the mechanism of channel gating and ion selection and permeation. Our methodological approach is based on ...

Structural Biology Brussels Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Responsible

The Structural Biology Brussels Lab, headed by Jan Steyaert was founded by Lode Wyns in the seventies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and is one of the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology departments. The understanding of the function of a protein, from its structure to its dynamics, remains the central theme of the lab. Our multidisciplinary team of about 40 researchers is housed in new laboratory facilities and combines extensive ...
