Solid Mechanics

We study materials and mechanics to tackle various engineering problems encountered as a result of material failure. The emphasis is given to gain a basic understanding of material microstructures and properties and their relationships. For example, we have investigated structure-property relationships of thin films/coatings, mechanical behavior of materials at nano- and microscales, and microstructure design. In addition, we use the state of the art nanoscale experimental characterization techniques to investigate the fundamental properties of nanostructures, nanoscale interactions and nano devices, and study their applications. We also have extensive collaboration with industry to study the electronic packaging and reliability using numerical and experimental methods.
