Materials Science Lab

Materials Science Lab: Understanding and verifying the properties of materials is the core work of this laboratory, including evaluation of the properties of materials during manufacturing and the effects of material aging during field use. Failure modes such as corrosion, wear, fracture, and fatigue are analyzed; information from these studies is used to develop longer-lasting materials and parts with improved reliability and durability.
