The Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics AS CR, v. v. i
(ITAM AS CR, v. v. i.)

works on scientific research in the field of solid phase mechanics, oriented particularly on micromechanics, biomechanics of solids, statistical dynamics of systems and media, nonlinear mechanics of systems, processes of failure of materials, mechanics of multifunctional materials, mechanics of particular media, and computer and numerical mechanics.

The research is also concerned with the economic assessment of structures, buildings, etc. incl. proposals for new methodologies for special-purpose buildings and structures and the assessment of environmental and territorial effects, particularly in the safeguarding and evaluation of historical buildings and settlements. Since 2000 the Institute has been supported by a grant from the European Commission as a "Centre of Excellence" responsible for the project ARCCHIP (Advanced Research Centre for the Cultural Heritage Interdisciplinary Project).

The Institute contributes to improvements in the standard of knowledge and education and the application of the results of scientific research in practice. It collects, processes and disseminates scientific information in the frame of ERA, publishes periodicals and collections of papers, and organises national and international scientific meetings.
It also provides scientific assessments, expert opinions and recommendations as well as consulting and advisory services. It provides post-graduate studies and doctoral study programmes and educates prospective scientists. In the framework of the objective of its activities it develops international co-operation, it helps to create international consortia and networks, organises workshops, etc. It performs its tasks independently and also in co-operation with universities and other institutions.
