Welcome to the Structured Materials and Dynamics Laboratory

Dr. Huang works in the broad area of Solid Mechanics and Structures, in particular the new frontiers of structural dynamics and dynamical behaviours of composite materials, both man-made and formed naturally, and understanding relationship between microstructures and material properties (structure and material dynamics, and elastic and acoustic wave characterization). By using numerical, experimental, and theoretical approaches, his group has been focusing on new multi-physical composite materials addressing challenges in designing of passive and active (adaptive) elastic/acoustic/seismic metamaterials for efficient vibration/acoustic/earthquake wave attenuation, bio and mechanical sensing, dynamic control, structural health monitoring, energy harvesting, and multiscale nano-material dynamic characterization, among others. His research projects are funded by NSF, Air Force of Scientific Research (AFOSR), ONR, NASA, ARPA-E, Army Research Office (ARO) and major industry companies.
