Strength and Soils Lab

The strengths lab is equipped with testing systems for learning principles of strength of materials, observing mechanical behaviors of common engineering materials under various loading conditions, and becoming familiar with modern sensors.

The strengths lab shares space with the soils lab, consisting of universal laboratory equipment for learning and practicing industry-standard soil test methods.
