A comprehensive and multidisciplinary research program centered on the fundamental study of the dynamic response and failure modes of a broad class of conventional and advanced ductile materials. This research program is founded on four important areas a the unique and novel experimental facilities for dynamic testing established at UCSD ba balanced multidisciplinary program with investigators of combined expertise and prominence in the fields of materials, mechanics and computational and experimental methods c a continuing interaction with U.S. Army research laboratories primarily, but not exclusively, BRL, MTh, and ARDEC which serves to maintain the relevance of the program, transfer to the Army its most significant accomplishments, and provide a vehicle forum for the continuing training of U.S. Army scientists d a vital and productive educational environment for future scientists in the field of dynamic behavior of materials. The research program addresses materials of current interest to the Army tungsten, tungsten composites, tantalum, advanced steels and copper, as well as novel materials and concepts nanocrystalline metals, and metal-matrix composites.
