Materials Science and Technology

DyMaLab pursues a combined experimental/numerical approach to investigate the impact-dynamic behaviour of materials. To identify the strain rate dependent material response, dedicated test techniques and experimental methods have been developed. DyMaLab disposes of a wide variety of test facilities, equipped with state-of-the-art measurement devices. Based on the experimental observations, constitutive material models are developed to describe the influence of strain rate and temperature.
