RESEARCH LINES

AMADE has nearly two decades of experience in the study, characterisation and analysis of the mechanical behaviour of advanced materials and structures.

COMPOSITES

Understanding the mechanical behaviour and fracture of composite materials and developing robust and reliable numerical models for an improved structural design.

STRUCTURES

Study of structural design with advanced materials.
