The LMM addresses the science and engineering of structural metallic materials, with particular focus on advanced metallic materials, including metal matrix composites and metal foams.

Research at the LMM spans the spectrum from materials processing to the exploration of links between the microstructure and the properties of advanced metallic materials, for both structural and functional applications. We explore several topics in materials science, including capillarity, infiltration processing, microstructural development, micromechanics, deformation, fracture and physical properties.
