The research group Mechanics of Advanced Materials is composed by a multidisciplinar team of Aeronautical, Civil, Mechanic and Material Engineers. The activities of the group are cantered, mainly, in the analysis and modelization of composite and sandwich structural elements subjected to impulsive loads, and in the study of the damage tolerance of this kind of structures. The group has an extensive experience in the development of non-standard test methodologies.

Lines of research

  • Analysis and modelizacion of composite and sandwich structures subjected to low and high velocity impacts.
  • Analysis and modelizacion of composite structures of absorption of energy.
  • Study of damage tolerance of composite structural elements subjected to different load conditions.
  • Development of non-standard tests methodologies of structural elements subjected to impact loads.
  • Modelizacion and experimental analysis of the mechanical behaviour of composite materials under dynamic conditions.
