Facilities

The COHMAS laboratory contains specific and specialised application equipment completed by state of the art Core facilities which enable the team to perform comprehensive studies of heterogeneous materials.


Models are systematically introduced to help better understanding, analysis and prediction of physical processes such as damage aging, and multiphysics behavior. The COHMAS laboratory's cluster of 7 workstations allows parallel computing during simulations of material behavior.
We can perform a wide range of testing no engineering materials, ranging from mechanical testing at various scales to long term aging in various environmental conditions.

Characterization and multi-fields observations is one of the key areas of our team, and it is supported by various characterization devices.

Our lab is equipped with major processing and preparation techniques for polymer matrix based composite materials.
KAUST has established Core Labs and Major Facilities which are available to support the research of faculty, scientists and graduate students both on campus and with regional and international collaborators. These facilities may also be used by KAUST’s industrial partners.
