Research Interest: Jaafar El-Awady

The primary focus of Prof. El-Awady’s research group is to develop a fundamental understanding of the underlying deformation mechanism in materials. The goal of his research group is to enhance the field of Materials-by-Design, by moving from empirical, trial-and-error development techniques of materials, to a combination of state of the art multiscale computational methods and experimental techniques that can result in expediting the process of developing reliable materials with superior performance. His group’s primary research interests range from: multiscale materials modeling, damage and fracture mechanisms of materials, material degradation in extreme environments, nano-materials and structures, coatings for high temperature applications, in situ SEM experiments.
