The Mechanics of Composites for Energy and Mobility Laboratory benefits from cutting edge experimental and computational facilities for studying the comprehensive characteristics (mechanical, damage, thermal, electrical, hygrothermal, fatigue) of advanced composite and heterogeneous materials. Our research is also supported by the common facilities available in the KAUST Core Labs.
Our lab is located at Level 2 (15A) and Level 0 (15B) of Building 4, Seaside.
This facility provides excellent sample preparation techniques for polymeric and composite materials.
Facility equipped with a wide range of mechanical test devices for plastics, nanocomposites and composite materials.
Extensive computational facility (cluster of 7 workstations allowing parallel computing).
This facility is equipped with high-end instrumentation essential for material characterization techniques.
