Norut Narvik's structural engineering research group performs research and development tasks of high quality within many areas:

  • Application of Finite Element method to calculations of structural mechanics and simulation of physical phenomena and processes.
  • Mathematical modelling of the mechanical properties of materials.
  • Use of advanced materials as composites in construction.
  • Cold Climate technology, Ice mechanics and ice forces and how these affect structures.
  • Product development, design of structures, virtual product development with help of CAD-modelling and numerical simulation based on finite element method.

Important fields of operation for the research group are construction and building, infrastructure, industry, energy, and oil and gas.

Research group
The department consists of highly qualified employees on doctorate and professional engineer level. The researchers have work experience from lecturing at university and polytechnics as well as business sectors such as construction and building, mechanical industry, and oil and gas.
