Lecture by Prof. Michael Kaliske.

What are the binding climate and loading conditions for a precious historic piano? How to decide objectively whether an instrument is stable enough to be played without being irreversibly harmed in future? What are sufficient climate conditions for valuable panel paintings like the Mona Lisa? Of course, real experiments are not permissible in these cases, but computer simulations allow for all kinds of virtual experiments. The lecture gives insight into computational analysis techniques and how the material wood in its multi-physical complexity is modelled with respect to moisture, failure and long-term behaviour. Numerical simulations of valuable artworks lively illustrate how state-of-the-art engineering simulation technology can be used to gain insight into the structural behaviour of wooden artwork and to support conservation strategies.

Prof Michael Kaliske has been Head of the Institute of Structural Analysis at Technische Universität Dresden since 2006. Before, he had been a research fellow at the Institute of Structural Analysis at Leibniz Universität Hannover and Director of the Institute for Structural Mechanics at Leipzig University. Furthermore, he is Chairman of the German Association for Computational Mechanics and Vice Chairman of the research association Forschungsvereinigung Baustatik-Baupraxis.
