About CERG

The Construction Engineering Research Group (CERG) focusses its research on the analytical, numerical and experimental assessment of the technical design of both structures and road infrastructure. In doing so, CERG wants to facilitate the transfer from fundamental research towards practical applications and into practice.

Research methods

Analytisch (1)

Analytical modelling

Assessment of the mechanical behaviour of structures and structural elements using relatively simple design models available in the current standards and state of the art.

Numeriek (1)

Numerical modelling

The structural response beyond the scope of the available standards and under extensive loading configurations can also be modelled in more detail using advanced numerical models.

Experimenteel (1)

Experimental testing

Full-scale evaluation of the mechanical properties, failure modes, and structural response of structural components or systems are possible at our structural lab, the AC³.
