The structural testing is primarily carried out in the Heavy Structures and Light Structures Laboratories. However, occasionally the work is extended to on-site testing as well. CBER has the following facilities to carry out the structural testing:

  • Strong floor.
  • Computer controlled data acquisition equipment.
  • Purpose built test rigs.
  • Range of test equipment with static and dynamic load facility up to 600kN.
  • Pressure, distance, angular, strain and load measuring equipment.
