Pinho Lab

"Using a fundamental understanding of the physical processes underlying failure of composite materials, we stand to not only to design more efficient lightweight structures, but also to design improved composite micro-structures with bespoke mechanical response.We aim to deliver world-leading research on the experimental investigation, analytical modelling and numerical simulation of the mechanical response of fibre-reinforced composite materials.Our group consists of passionate, creative and committed researchers, which pursue excellence on every aspect of their research."
