How can high-velocity liquid cause major damage to solid materials, such as erosion of wind blades? LSIMPACT embarks on a journey to not just understanding the failure mechanisms of solid materials under liquid impact, but also to create new materials with ‘life-like’ features. The team will develop materials that can heal themselves, adapt, and endure — greatly enhancing the lifetime of engineering structures,
