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
