Center of Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments (CMEDE)

The Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments (CMEDE) is a multi-institution collaborative research center housed within the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute at Johns Hopkins University. CMEDE is part of the Army Research Laboratory’s Enterprise for Multiscale Research of Materials and includes 15 research institutions across nine states.

The focus of CMEDE is to develop the capability to design, optimize, and fabricate material systems exhibiting revolutionary performance in extreme dynamic environments. The approach is to realize a mechanism-based “materials-by-design” capability focused on advancing the fundamental understanding of materials in relevant high strain rate and high stress regimes.
