Welcome to the Fatigue and Durability of Materials and Structures Research Laboratory at the College of Computing, Engineering, & Construction, University of North Florida. Our work has been primarily focused on experimental characterization & analysis, and predictive modeling of metals and polymeric-based materials, fabricated using both traditional and additive manufacturing (AM) methods, under cyclic or fatigue loading.

We are interested in both basic research that advances the understanding of fatigue machanisms in materials, as well as applied research that has specific commerial objectives to facilitate the design of components and structures.
