Soils and Material Laboratory
The civil engineering materials laboratory is used primarily for undergraduate instruction, but is also used for undergraduate and graduate research, and undergraduate departmental projects all of which involve testing of concrete, steel, or soil materials.
Problems we are working on
The main purpose of this lab is to allow undergraduates to creatively and systematically explore civil engineering materials in a hands-on environment.
