Ballistic Loading and Structural Testing Lab (BLAST)

The primary goal of our group is to understand the behavior of different materials at high rates of loading. We are particularly interested in shock and dynamic impact loading as they relate to composite materials. We have expertise in understanding woven composites and the complex architectures associated with them.
