Water, Geo and Structural Engineering labs

Themes: Structural Engineering, Water & Maritime


Why?


Civil Engineering and Applied Earth Sciences often rely on digital modelling of phenomena. To be able to create and validate these models, large scale experiments are required. Our laboratories offer a vast range of unique experimental setups for just that. They’re available for contract and scientific research.

How?


The setups include Meccano-like test rigs (to test concrete and glass structures to breaking point), complete riverbed simulators, a full-scale house on a shaking table for earthquake research, a liquefaction tank for river bank stability measurements and more.
