The COHMAS laboratory benefits from cutting edge experimental and computational facilities for studying the comprehensive characteristics (mechanical, damage, thermal, electrical, hygrothermal, fatigue) of advanced composite and heterogeneous materials. Our research is also supported by the common facilities available in the KAUST Core Labs.
Our lab is located at Level 2 (15A) and Level 0 (15B) of Building 4, Seaside.
