The Center for Materials Genome is a state-of-the-art facility enabling efficient materials characterization, diagnostics, and prognosis methods relying on three-dimensional imaging and performance prediction based on accurate computational tools. The center uniquely combines micro-focus computed tomography (CT) imaging, digital image correlation (DIC) techniques, and an array of load frames capable of static, fatigue, and impact loads. The analysis technology assembled in the center is able to capture the material structure geometry, including manufacturing irregularities, in three dimensions.
