Welcome to the online home of the Mechanics of Materials Research Group. The MOMRG’s cohort of student and faculty researchers engage in the systematic investigation of barriers to progress in Structural Integrity. Techniques from experimental, computational, and theoretical mechanics are all invoked to establish facts in the areas of Fatigue Analysis, Creep and Plasticity Constitutive Modeling, Life Prediction Modeling, Fracture Mechanics, Failure Analysis, Additive, Manufacturing, Mechanics of Structures, Materials for Hypersonic Platforms, and so on.
The group is directed by Dr. Ali P. Gordon of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of Central Florida (UCF). The group actively engages in both collaborative and interdisciplinary research. Please feel free to navigate the site and explore the past and present activities of this highly productive research group.
