Welcome to the Materials Research Institute
A centre of excellence providing the platform to support dynamic inter-disciplinary materials research, in collaboration with academia, research councils and industry professionals.
Queen Mary has a strong tradition of materials-based research. The creation of the Materials Research Institute (MRI) brings together a range of expertise within several Schools: Engineering and Materials, Physics and Astronomy, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes.
- Void ratio based representative volume element for modelling the high strain rate behaviour of granular materials. International Journal of Impact Engineering vol. 91, 46-55.
- Enamelin Directs Crystallite Organization at the Enamel-Dentine Junction. Journal of dental research vol. 95, (5) 580-587.
- Binderless all-cellulose fibreboard from microfibrillated lignocellulosic natural fibres. Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing vol. 83, 38-46.
