Advanced computational modeling supported by experimental testing.
IMMC Areas of Expertise

Mission

The Impact Mechanics and Material Characterization Group undertakes leading computational modeling and experimental testing, bridging the gap between these two important disciplines with advanced high deformation rate material characterization and constitutive modeling.

Computational Modeling

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and High Performance Computing (HPC) have been identified as critical elements in innovation and achieving reduced design cycle times, saving millions of dollars in development costs.

Material Characterization

A key enabler for advanced modeling is the ability to test materials, develop and implement in appropriate constitutive models, and integrate into the CAE environment.
