Materials in Extreme Environments

Georgia Tech has a unique combination of experimental facilities and modeling and simulation capabilities to explore far from equilibrium behavior of materials subjected to high strain rate loading conditions, elevated temperature deformation and fracture, corrosion and coupled mechano-chemical reactions, and irradiation service environments.

Facilities include the Georgia Tech High-Strain-Rate Facility, the Georgia Tech Dynamic Properties Research Laboratory, the Mechanical Properties Research Laboratory, and the Corrosion and Materials Chemistry Laboratory.
