About Us

Since its foundation in 1948, the Institute for Building Materials Research at RWTH Aachen University (ibac) has developed into an internationally leading and recognised platform in the field of building materials research. The spectrum ranges from applied research and development, often in cooperation with industrial partners, to basic scientific research. RWTH Aachen University offers an ideal environment for this.

The ibac has expanded significantly in 2014 and has grown to 3 professorships and one junior professorship. The resulting organisational changes have led to the units of the ibac appearing with their own internet offerings. Here you will find the joint pages of the teaching and research areas of Structural Maintenance and Repair (Professor Raupach) and Structural Polymer Composites in Civil Engineering (Professor Weichold).
