Materials Across The Scales 

The Materials Across The Scales Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh aims to advance the research in the field of multiscale computational and experimental modeling of structural materials  Our research focuses on characterizing the physical phenomena occurring at multiple time and length scales to predict failure in large-scale infrastructure systems subject to extreme events such as earthquakes, floods or impacts. Our multiscale experimental efforts aim to the definition of rigorous tools for the quantification of the mechanical properties at different scales, allowing for the validation of the numerical models.
