The research group's main aim is to study the structural integrity, reliability and behaviour of materials for structural applications in engineering, particularly fracture, fatigue, corrosion and micromechanics of advanced ceramics, hard metals and composites, steels and new alloys. In addition, the CIEFMA is part of the TECNIO network and offers support to businesses. It also has a quality management system for managing projects and handling incidents and the use of facilities. The research group's strategy mainly targets the materials engineering sectors in which it has expertise: metallurgy, transport, energy, biomedicine and education. Its most significant research lines are the following: mechanical behaviour, fracture, fatigue and corrosion of steels, titanium alloys and new alloys; advanced technical ceramics, nanostructured ceramics, resistance to degradation and surface modification; metal-ceramic composites, cemented carbides and fracture, fatigue and surface modification; and coatings, micromechanics and nanoindentation.
