The Multifunctional Materials & Structures (MMS) team is focused on the development of hybrid structures using multifunctional meta materials and smart structures. Multidisciplinary physics-based tools and methods are being developed and used for design of robust processes and products. The MMS team’s capabilities include design and development for additive manufacturing; integrated computational materials engineering; and multidisciplinary optimization.
- Design, process development and optimization of additively manufactured products, including effects of defects
- Meta materials, smart structures and hybrid multi-functional structures development
- Composites, integrated computational materials engineering and structural optimization
