Welcome to the Advanced Materials and Mechanical Systems Laboratory (AMMS Lab)  in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Texas at San Antonio.


The main research interest of the AMMS Lab is to advance in the fundamental understanding of nonlinear behavior and failure mechanisms observed in materials and structures, with the aim of designing new materials that exhibit unprecedented mechanical properties and functionalities. To achieve this goal, our research approach combines computational simulations, theoretical analysis, fabrication, and experimental testing. Applications of interest are in broad areas including healthcare, defense, robotics, civil infrastructure, mechanical engineering, and aerospace engineering.
