Structural engineering is a combination of all the structural sections that are part of ES such as Biobased structures and Materials, Concrete structures, Dynamic of Solids and structures, Mechanics and Physics of Structures and Steel & Composite structures. These sections combined research into properties of materials and structures of Steel, concrete, timber, brick and fiber-reinforced plastics.
Largescale tensile test
At the Stevinlaboratory some of the largest scale tests can be conducted in the Netherlands and sometimes the world. Among these exceptional tests it is possible for large scale concrete beams and plates to be tested in 1-, 2- and 3-point bending. Furthermore it is possible to conduct Tensile strength tests up to 10,000kN.
