Facilities

The Computer Laboratory for Granular Physics Studies focuses on advancing the understanding of the fundamental nature of interactions between granular objects. The laboratory aims to leverage such advances toward improving civil, industrial, and materials engineering processes. Other facilities harnessed for research include the Major Analytical Instrumentation Center (MAIC) used to analyze micro and nanoscopic surface features of granular material, and the State Materials Office (SMO), to provide testing of granular material.
