Research Activity

The research activity of the Department of Materials Science in the field of composite materials has focused on analyzing the relationship between the microstructure and mechanical properties in advanced composite materials. The research group, as a multidisciplinary research addresses from the triple perspective of characterizing the mechanical properties, microscopic level analysis of the mechanisms of deformation and breakage, and simulation (analytical or numerical) of these processes to obtain quantitative predictions of the influence of microstructural parameters on the mechanical behavior at the macroscopic level. The research results are interesting from the standpoint of Materials Science and - simultaneously - have helped to solve practical problems in the field of structural applications of composite materials.
