Welcome to the Institute of Numerical Methods and Informatics in Civil Engineering (IIB)

Our focus in research and teaching is on computer-based methods for modeling and simulation in engineering science tasks. This includes design, development and application of modern procedures, methods and demonstrators of information and communication technology for building design, construction, management and interaction with the environment in terms of the digital transformation of engineering tasks.

    RessStadtQuartier – Instrumente für die ressourceneffiziente Entwicklung von Quartieren

    Neues Forschungsprojekt unter Beteiligung des IIB und zwei weiteren Fachgebieten des FB 13 gestartet

    Der Gebäudebestand stellt das größte „Rohstofflager“ der Gesellschaft dar und hat gleichzeitig einen wesentlichen Anteil an der Nachfrage nach Energie. Beide Aspekte sind wichtige Handlungsfelder für die Erhöhung der Ressourceneffizienz im Gebäudesektor. Gleichzeitig unterliegen städtische Quartiere in Ballungsräumen heute einem vielfältigen Veränderungsdruck, mit dem eine steigende Dynamik von Planungsprozessen einhergeht.

    TU Darmstadt's E-Learning group as guest at the IIB

    E-Learning event at the institute

    Demonstrations on the topics VR, AR and Digital Teaching

    On Thursday, February 28th, 2019, the E-Learning group of TU Darmstadt visited the institute. In keeping with the topic “Virtual Reality – Potentials and Insights at the Darmstadt CES-Lab”, the participants were able to take a closer look at new technologies and approaches for teaching and research and also try them out for themselves. We would like to thank everyone involved for their keen interest and would like to take this opportunity to refer to the university-wide “Digital Teaching” workshop in June.

    Virtual reality (VR) in lectures

    Testing VR4Teach in a lecture

    Experience the spread of a fire individually in VR – immersive building physics and other examples

    With the “VR4Teach” project, the Institute of Numerical Methods and Informatics in Civil Engineering and the Institute of Construction and Building Materials have realized a cost-effective option that brings virtual reality to students in the lecture hall. In a direct test in the lecture, the spread of fire and smoke development in a one-room apartment could be experienced immersively by students.
