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.

OUR SERVICES

Composite testing lab

Highly capable composites testing laboratory based in Girona’s technology park.

CHARACTERISATION TESTS

Standard and state-of-the-art material characterisation tests.

Non-Destructive Inspection lab

Inspection of microstructure and surface and internal defects

Simulations

Development of numerical models for the analysis of advanced materials.

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN MECHANICS OF MATERIALS & STRUCTURES

The knowledge adquired in our AMADE research team is transferred to the Official Master’s degree of the European Higher Education Area: Master of Science in Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MMS) at the University of Girona
