The Structural Engineering Laboratory
provides comprehensive modern facilities for research
and teaching in structural engineering, solid mechanics
and construction materials. Within the 1300 m2 of floor
area are Structures/Solid Mechanics Laboratory and Concrete/Construction
Materials Laboratory. A comprehensive range of modern
testing machines is provided for static and dynamic testing
of structures and construction materials. These include
a 2500 kN multi-channel DARTEC testing system, a 2000
kN tension/compression machine of generous light-clearance,
MTS machines and three electro-magnetic and hydraulic
vibration testing systems, with various modern data acquisition
systems. There is a strong reaction wall of six meters
high in the Structures/Solid Mechanics Laboratory for
large-scale static and dynamic testing of structures.
Workshop facilities are also provided by the Department's
own electronic and machine shops.
A series of experiments related to
wind and earthquake vibration are carrying out in the
structrual engineering laboratory. It is common for
Hong Kong people to feel the vibration from wind ...
However, there is NO earthquake in Hong Kong. Do you
want to experience earthquake through Internet??? Select
the vibration level and press the Start button to see...
