Material Models

Material models can be categorized along different criteria, such as involved disciplines or used materials. It is also possible to group models by historical periods, origin, or size. We use a classification that is based on the reference objects and postulates eight model types, although an object may fit several types. The following texts (in German) provide an overview regarding the different model types.
