Research Activity

The research activities of the Department of Materials Science in this field has focused on several different lines that have developed in parallel, because of the close relationship between them..

First, the analysis of the influence of strain rate on mechanical properties of materials, which due to their peculiarities require specific experimental techniques, such as drop tower tests, Hopkinson bar or impact with a gas gun.

On the other hand the analytical and numerical simulation of real situations in which the strain rate is a key variable, such as ballistic impact situations and effects of explosives.

The research results are of interest not only from the standpoint of Materials Science, but at the same time have helped to solve practical problems in real situations, contrasted with a transfer of results to industry.
