Welcome to the David Dunand Research Group

The Structural Metallic Materials Group, supervised by Prof. David C. Dunand, focuses on the mechanical metallurgy of advanced metallic alloys, composites and foams. Concurrent research also addresses advanced processing techniques (e.g., to fabricate novel composites and foams) and microstructure characterization (e.g., to link the observed microstructure to the measured mechanical properties). In terms of applications, the main research thrust is on light and/or heat-resistant metals for energy-efficient transportation (metallic composites and foams; aluminum-, titanium-, iron-, nickel-, cobalt- and copper-based alloys).  Another important research topic is mechanics of mineralized biomaterials (bone and tooth).
