Sustainable Materials

Bliss Hall, 1 Lippitt Road, Kingston RI 02881 USA



The central theme of our research lies in the area of application of mechanics of materials at different length scales towards microstructure-guided design of sustainable infrastructure materials and its impact on macro-scale structures. Our overall goal is to: (i) develop novel unconventional sustainable structural material for sustainability; (ii) improve our understanding on the novel sustainable structural materials at different length scales through modern comprehensive characterization tools (such as nanoindentation and synchrotron tomography etc.); (iii) develop kinetic model to track reaction efficiency and (iv) application of mechanics of materials to establish microstructure-property link with a view to understand fundamental stress distribution, crack-initiation and propagation in these novel materials towards its optimal performance.
