Physical Testing Laboratory

The Physical Testing Laboratory has the capacity to assess the static, dynamic, and creep behavior of elastic, plastic, and viscoelastic materials. This laboratory has both a universal test machine and a creep testing machine with precisely controlled environmental chambers that allow investigation of short- and long-term viscoelastic behavior in natural materials. This lab is also equipped with in situ testing devices to assess building performance and component properties with micro- or nondestructive methods. The Physical Testing Laboratory can measure vibration periods and damping values as well as record precise 3D point clouds that can be used for further modelling or other parameter analysis, such as deformation measurements.
