At MaDLab, our goal is to make engineering structures safer, quieter, and more efficient. To achieve this, our research mission is to create new knowledge and address technology challenges at the intersection of structural mechanics, dynamics, and acoustics. At one end, we focus on understanding the fundamental mechanics of novel engineered material systems such as acoustic metamaterials, phononic structures, architected lattice structures, and stochastic foams. At the other end of the spectrum, we translate this knowledge to create performance-tailored solutions to critical engineering problems across various industries.
We are always eager to partner with other researchers and industries. Do you want to make your products lighter without reducing safety or performance? Worried about excessive vibrations? Need a lightweight solution to reducing noise? Or do you want to design for multifunctionality and improve efficiency? We are here to help!
