College of Engineering and Computing


Dynamic Behavior and Multifunctional Materials Lab

Our general research interest is in the study of the mechanical behavior of emerging advanced materials, mainly focused on the relationship between micro-mechanical phenomena and macro-material properties, with the long-term goal being to contribute to the design and fabrication of improved material systems capable of addressing future engineering problems in energy, transport, and safety applications.

Our researchers are interested in understanding the mechanics of failure and fracture of conventional and unconventional materials, such as composite materials, metal matrix composites, functionally graded material, and particle-reinforced polymers under different temperature and loading conditions
