Structural Research Laboratory



Large-scale structural testing


The Structural Research Laboratory (SRL) supports large-scale structural testing needs for the university.

Type: Facilities

The SRL is a versatile facility for performing large-scale structural engineering experiments on civil infrastructure components and systems. The SRL features a strong floor and strong wall that can be used to apply large static and dynamic loads. Experiments conducted in the SRL contribute to the development of new structural engineering innovations, changes to building codes and solutions to critical problems associated with the structural design of civil infrastructure. The SRL has a long history of supporting industry, research and educational projects.
