This laboratory conducts basic and applied research on the mechanical properties of fiber reinforced composite materials. Loading conditions span a very large range, from creep and relaxation to cyclic fatigue, impact and high strain-rate loading. The characterization includes properties in the out-of-plane direction (3D). The laboratory has strong interaction with industry by conducting tests and providing guidance in solving mechanical problems
