Univ. Patras

Applied Mechanics Laboratory, University of Patras (AML/UoP) is in operation since 1980. It is part of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics, University of Patras. AML/UoP deals with the general field of MATERIALS & STRUCTURES giving emphasis in the science, the technology, and the applications of composite materials, primarily on polymer composites. 

  • Material & nano/multi scale reinforced composites development and characterization
  • Design, analysis & optimization of composite structures
  • Nondestructive inspections and SHM
  • Composite processing & manufacturing 

These form the pylons for application in Aeronautics, Space, Automotive and Wind industry. AML/UoP has strategically focused is the nano-engineered composite materials development, characterization and analysis. Through the participation in a number of EU and ESA R&D projects, AML/UoP has acquired great experience in the techniques and the processing parameters for the development of FRP with nano-reinforced material systems and has identified a number of potentially beneficial properties of this new generation of Multi-Scale Reinforced Composite Materials for aeronautical and aerospace applications.
