LAB FACILITIES

  • Structural engineering testing lab at the University of Windsor is one of the largest and tallest in Canada. It has the following key features:

  • Total strong floor area of about 600 sqm. Ceiling height of the lab is about 15 m

  • Two strong walls (each is 11 m tall and 5.7 m long)

  • It has a 20-ton capacity overhead crane, one 5-ton forklift, and one  10 m tall Caesar lift

  • One strong beam with adjustable height (up to 10 m) for application of up to 3000 kN tension-compression loads

  • One tall testing frame for testing of walls of up to 6 m tall

  • One very large 3000 kN capacity loading frame for testing large structural specimens such as bridge decks

  • One loading frame for application of up to 4000 kN axial tension-compression load

  • One small loading frame for testing medium structural testing specimens such as beams and columns

  • Two MTS made fatigue testing actuators and test frames with 500 kN and 250 kN capacities

  • One Instron made test frame for fatigue tests on small samples and materials

  • One MTS made universal loading actuator (1700 kN capacity) with a 30-inch stroke

  • MTS Hydraulic pump with a controller for running MTS fatigue and MTS universal actuators

  • Pressure cycle test facility on pipes and pressure vessels
