Welcome to the website of Structural Efficiency Laboratory. Our motto is: Get more out of a structure.
Our focus is modeling behavior of innovative structural components that offer advanced mechanical properties. In addition to mechanics, we focus on development of optimization and machine learning algorithms to create more advanced structures and systems. To allow production of these structures, we are investigating advanced welding techniques to ensure high quality and structural integrity.
We are supported by Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering at The University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver.
