The area of a professional activity of the chair employees in relation to all types of the metal  and timber structures is the preparation of advanced designs, expert opinions and scientific and technical analyses, including in particular:

- verification of existing designs,

- diagnoses of structures in their pre-failure states as well as in the emergency conditions,

- evaluation of structural reliability as well as of the predicted durability after many years of service,

- fire safety assessment with different simulated fire exposure scenarios.

As part of expert activities related to the transportation structures, such as:

- bridge structures - including bridges, culverts, viaducts, flyovers, footbridges,

- underground facilities - including road and rail tunnels, garages and parking lots, pedestrian crossings,

- engineering and industrial facilities - including retaining walls, bridges and technological flyovers,

the professional activities are undertaken in the field of:

- structual diagnostics,

- static and dynamic analyses,

- development and verification of both conceptual and of building designs (regarding repairs, reinforcements, renovations, modernizations, etc.),

- laboratory tests of materials as well as of structural members,

- acceptance tests of these objects (including the trial loads),

- performing the scientific as well as the author's supervision over the execution of the investments,

- periodic and special inspections,

- assessment of the technical condition of the facility (regarding its current condition and expected lifetime as well as the specification of the conditions for further use),

- analysis and assessment of the considered facilities in emergency states.
