Department

The Department of Organic and Wood-Based Materials of the iBMB arose in 2010 from the long existing department Structures and Application of Building Materials. The new department originated from the cooperation of the Fraunhofer Society and the Technical University Braunschweig, and works closely together with the Institute for Wood Research Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut (WKI) in Braunschweig.

WKI-Webinar "Dynamics of Wood Impact" held by Toby Polocoser

The WKI Online Seminar (Webinar) "Dynamics of Wood Impact" will be held by Toby Polocoser on February 28, 2017 at 3.00 – 4.00 pm.

The design of wooden structures subjected to variable,increased strain rates required deeper knowledge of the
 dynamic material properties. Literature regarding the past accepted models of increased stiffness and strength based on rule-of-thumb factors are not satisfactory and do not provide confidence in the design and safety of structures
based thereon.
