Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Bahr.


In the table below you can get an overview of my professional career. As a structural engineer, I am very familiar with the creation of static calculations at room temperature. I also create fire designs of members and structures. Therefore, I am very familiar with both the cold and hot design of constructions and can offer you solutions that cover both conditions.

I also cover a broad spectrum in my teaching at university. In addition to the basic static subjects (technical mechanics and structural engineering), I offer courses on the topics of steel construction, composite steel construction, bridge construction and structural fire protection.
