The University of Alabama Nonlinear Intelligent Structures Laboratory (NIS) is a teaching and research laboratory featuring state-of-the-art equipment for experimental and numerical analysis of dynamics, vibrations and control of mechanical systems with applications to Micro- and NanoElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS and NEMS), energy harvesting, smart structures, automotive, and aerospace structures. NIS emphasis in all these areas is on modeling, closed-form and numerical solution of the response, experimental investigations and the consequent challenges due to nonlinearities. 

NIS laboratory is located at 3034
South Engineering Research Center (SERC).
