Vision & Objective
Large Scale Structural Failure Test Facility
Fire Test Facility
Structural failure testing due to extreme loads
Buckling and collapse testing of structural systems and components under monotonically increasing loads
Failure testing of mooring systems or chains in tension
Fatigue testing of structural systems and components under dynamically repeated loads
