Welcome to SACL!


Welcome to the Structures And Composites Laboratory (SACL) in the Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics at Stanford University. The main focus of the group is to build intelligent and light-weight structures, with emphasis on structural health monitoring.



Areas of Research Focus:


  • Structural design to enhance vehicle safety, performance, reliability, and sustainability

  • Manufacturing to improve material quality, process control, and fabrication costs

  • Smart materials to create innovative structural designs including structures with multi-functional capabilities

  • Health monitoring for ground vehicles, aircraft, and spacecraft structures

  • Design methods, prototypes, and tools to transform and develop technologies to reach and benefit the general public
