Fatigue and Stress Analysis Lab (FATSLAB)

Based at the University of Waterloo, the Fatigue and Stress Analysis Lab (FATSLAB) is a laboratory in the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering with three major goals: fatigue characterization, modeling and life enhancement; the study and development of robust and efficient methods for durability analysis and their applications to computer-aided engineering (CAE) design; and the education of engineering leaders. This research applies to automotive, aerospace, off-shore structures, power generation, and microelectronics industries.
