Center for Mechanics of Solids, Structures, and Materials
Research Unit Profile
The Center maintains the following laboratories: Solids and Structures Lab, Acropolis Computing Center, Composites Laboratory and the Mechanics of Materials Lab. The laboratories house modern testing facilities for examining the mechanical behavior of solids and materials at the structural level and the material macro, meso and micro levels. The group has its own dedicated computational facilities consisting of several work stations, graphics capabilities, data acquisition systems and digital image analysis systems.
