Our facilities are a physical reflection of our work, combining spaces for theoretical, numerical, and experimental work. We are equiped with student research spaces, mechanical testing spaces, as well as a chemical wet lab with a walk-in fume hood. Our main pieces of equipment are listed below:
Instron E3000 – Dynamic Axial/Torsion All-Electric Load Frame
– 3kN linear capacity and 25 Nm torsional capacity.
Instron 8874 – Dynamic Axial-Torsion Servohydraulic Load Frame
– 25kN linear capacity and 100Nm torque capacity.
Correlated Solutions VIC-2D Digitial Image Correlation System
– Capable of non-contant 2D strain measurements.
|Walk-in Fume Hood and Chemical Wet lab Space||Specifically designed for testing materials under exposure of various chemicals. The walk-in fume hood is designed such that the E3000 load frame may be placed within the fume hood for testing under various chemicals.|
We also have a number of other instruments including various fixtures, microscopes, power sources, oscilloscopes, etc…
