Laboratories

Advanced Ceramics Group

Educating next generation scientists and engineers with expertise in advanced ceramic science and engineering and promoting awareness of ceramics and related fields among undergraduate students and the general South Florida community

Advanced Materials Engineering Research Institute

AMERI specializes in nano-technology, nano-fabrication, biosensors, carbon nanotubes and nanowires, micro fuel cells and batteries, electronic materials, ceramics, polymers, biomaterials, metals and alloys, and composite materials.

Center for the Study of Matter under Extreme Conditions

CESMEC specializes in developing and testing new materials for ultra high temperatures and pressures.

Composites Laboratory

The Composite Laboratory specializes in Structure-to-Property Relationships, Design of Materials, Analysis Methods, and Material Systems Expertise.

Fluid-Structure Interaction Laboratory (FSI Lab)

Fluid-Structure Interaction Laboratory studies the physics behind the interaction of fluids and structures. The research conducted in this laboratory is mainly concerned with the stability analysis of flexible structures exposed to airflow — an example is a very flexible flying wing aircraft experiencing large deformation. Another aspect of our work deals with design based on constructal law (animate and inanimate systems), and innovative energy harvesting methods.

Multidisciplinary Analysis, Inverse Design, Robust Optimization and Control Laboratory

MAIDROC with its 128-processor parallel computer emphasizing computational interdisciplinary integration of fields involving fluid mechanics/aerodynamics, heat transfer, stress/deformation fields, electromagnetics, and chemistry.

Plasma Deposition Laboratory

The Plasma laboratory provides excellent experimental research facilities for hot and cold plasma deposition, thermal barrier coating, anti-corrosion coating, bulk metallic glasses manufacturing and characterization.
