LACASMEN - Laboratorio de Ensayos y Simulación Mecánica en Ciencia e Ingeniería de Materiales

Universidad Politécnica Madrid


The laboratory has unique research infrastructures for the nano-micro and macromechanical characterization of materials. This infrastructure enables the determination of the mechanical behavior of materials and structures at very  different stress conditions (uniaxial and multiaxial, monotonic and cyclic), strain rates (from static tests to ballistics test), atmospheres (inert or agressive, high vacuum or controlled environments) and temperatures (from 77 to 1900 K).

Technical Capabilities

The laboratory has an international reputation in the development of micromechanical models to establish the relationship between the microstructure and the macroscopic mechanical properties of structural materials.
