Cai Group

Welcome to Cai Research Group !

Cai group in Mechanical Engineering Department at University of South Florida is an interdisciplinary research group at the interface of materials science, mechanical engineering, and solid state physics. We explore the processing-structure-property relationships in structural metals and materials using experiments, analytical theory, and computer simulations. Our research focus include: new processing strategy for energy efficient engineering alloys and coatings; and fundamental understandings of the physical, mechanical, and tribological properties of multifunctional materials.
