Structural Materials

The demands placed on structural material performance are constantly increasing across application areas including transportation, power generation, and defense. This area of research is focused on the structure-processing-property relationships in materials for load-bearing applications. These materials must retain their mechanical properties in extreme environments even as the allowed weight, costs, and energy inputs decrease.
