Advanced Metallic Materials & Characterisation Laboratory

About AMMC Lab

The study of a material’s performance in terms of its integrity is important since the prevention of engineering component failure in-service is essential for safety in our daily lives. Without a study of material processing, the accurate prediction of failure is unlikely to be attainable, and hence assessing structural integrity has been our long-standing research goal.

AMMC lab focuses on investigation of materials processing and mechanical behaviour of advanced metallic materials for high value industrial applications (e.g. aerospace, automotive and bioengineering). We are interested in the fundamental question of how deformation of metallic alloys occurs on the level of individual microstructural constituents, and the more practical questions of how the (micro)mechanical deformation mechanisms can be applied to enhance the structural integrity of large-scale engineering components.
