Structures and Materials Laboratories

Structures and Materials Laboratories

The “Structures and Materials Laboratories” in METUWIND focuses on mechanical testing, characterization and computational modelling of structural components and materials used in the Aerospace and Wind Energy industries.

The Structures and Materials Laboratories consist of three specific testing facilities:

   

   

   

COMPOSITE MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION LABORATORY 

STRUCTURAL MECHANICS AND MATERIALS TESTING LABORATORY  

STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS LABORATORY 

The lab focuses on the characterization of the composite materials used in the Aerospace and Wind Energy industries and on design, analysis, and optimization of structures composed of composite materials using experimental and numerical techniques.

The lab focuses on mechanical testing and computational modelling of structural components and materials used in the Aerospace and Wind Energy industries.

The lab focuses on the testing and analysis of vibration and structural dynamic behaviour of Aerospace, Mechanical and Civil engineering structures
