Materials Lab

In this lab most standard tests can be performed on almost all construction materials, including concrete, aggregates, asphalt, various metals, and related constituents.

It is equipped with a 400-ton Forney Hydraulic Testing Rig, a high-precision displacement controlled Instron Testing Frame, equipment for standard testing of aggregates and concrete in both fresh and hardened stages, and equipment for non-destructive testing of different elements of existing structures, such as ultrasonic device, Schmidt Hammer, Windsor Probe, Rebar Scan, and Core Drills.
