DyMaLab is the UGent laboratory for research on dynamic behavior of materials and structures. The research activities at DyMaLab focus on the impact-dynamic properties of materials and structures by means of two approaches.
  • Development of new test setups and experimental methodologies to quantify the strain rate effect on the mechanical behaviour of materials.
  • Targeted research efforts on constitutive material modelling to simulate the dynamic response of materials and structures.
