About CMEDE

Our Mission

The Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments addresses the fundamental science issues associated with materials in extreme dynamic environments through collaborative research. Our objective is to ensure the physics-based design of materials for the extreme dynamic environments developed in impact applications, which include impacts on personnel and vehicles, hypervelocity impact, and blast protection. We emphasize the development of the strongest possible science team through structured collaborations with other universities, national laboratories and industry.
