The Wood Materials & Engineering Laboratory is now part of the Composite Materials & Engineering Center
The Wood Materials & Engineering Laboratory at Washington State University has a long and illustrious history in wood composite materials, design and construction. Since its founding in 1949, the scope of the research, outreach and education programs of the laboratory has expanded beyond wood materials to include other natural fibers, polymers, inorganic cements, masonry and steel. In addition to materials engineering, we are extensively involved in developing standards, building codes and design methodologies for these wide-ranging composite material systems. To address this broader mission, the WMEL is now part of the Composite Materials & Engineering Center (CMEC). This new organizational structure more accurately reflects the complete scope of our programs.
