Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty VI - Insti­tute of Civil Engin­eer­ing / Chair of Con­cep­tual and Struc­tural Design

Research Assist­ant - 0.5 work­ing time - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

Work­ing field:

For a DBU-fin­anced research pro­ject, precast ele­ments made of Infra-Light­weight Con­crete (ILC) are to be developed which will sub­sequently be applied in a build­ing pro­ject of a hous­ing com­pany in Ber­lin. The aim is to demon­strate the archi­tec­tural poten­tial of this fair-faced con­crete build­ing method while integ­rat­ing the advant­ages of pre-fab­ric­a­tion. Spe­cial emphasis should be placed on a design that takes the char­ac­ter­ist­ics of Infra-Light­weight Con­crete into account and thus real­izes the robust sim­pli­city of the mater­ial.
The 2-year-pro­ject will be car­ried out by the archi­tect of this job advert­ise­ment at the Chair of Con­cep­tual and Struc­tural Design in cooper­a­tion with a research assist­ant (civil engin­eer­ing). Based on typo­lo­gical ana­lyses, the design of the façade made of ILC precast ele­ments needs to be developed in coordin­a­tion with the pro­ject archi­tects of the hous­ing com­pany. Struc­tural ques­tions have to be cla­ri­fied and gen­eral details for the con­nec­tion of the precast ele­ments are to be developed. Fur­ther tasks are the plan­ning and sup­port of the pro­duc­tion and test­ing of pro­to­types, com­ple­tion of eco­lo­gical ana­lyses and invest­ig­a­tion of pro­duc­tion, trans­port and assembly pro­cesses. Besides the actual research work, close coordin­a­tion with the pro­ject plan­ners of the hous­ing com­pany as well as pro­ject man­age­ment work are part of the tasks.
