The institute conducts research in the scientific discipline: mechanical engineering. The basic research areas related to the development of our own academic staff  (the prepared doctoral and habilitation dissertations) include:

  • Non-mechanical effects in continuum dynamics
  • Modern problems in mechanics of non-Newtonian fluids
  • Stability and optimization of thin-walled shell structures: one- and multi-layered
  • Application of information technologies and experimental data in vibroacoustics of biomechanical systems

Within the institute, the following scientific specialities have been developed:

  • Computer methods in mechanics
  • Thermoelasticity and thermal stresses
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Theory of heat conduction
  • Coupling field theory
  • Mechanics of auxetics
  • Nonlinear dynamics
  • Theory of mechanisms
  • Interval arithmetic
  • Biomechanics
  • Stability of shell structures in the elasto-plastic range
  • Optimization of thin-walled, composite and multi-layered structures
  • Strength and stability of thin-walled rod, plate and shell structures
  • Computer methods of structural analysis
  • Modelling and investigation of mechanical properties of construction materials
  • Structures made from porous materials
  • Multi-symptom vibroacoustic diagnostics of systems
  • Diagnostics of technological processes with the application of acoustic emission
  • Machine dynamics and structural distribution of power and energy flow in mechanical and biomechanical systems
  • Protection of human and the environment against noise and vibration
