Design of Active Materials and Structures Lab (DAMSL)

 

The Design of Active Materials and Structures Lab (DAMSL) harnesses the potential of materials that respond to their environment by incorporating them into unique structures - particularly textile structures. These systems incorporating active materials have applications in many fields including aerospace, biomedical, wearables, and consumer products.
