Lab Description

Structural Engineering  Laboratory


The Structural Laboratory of the Civil Engineering Department constructed over an enclosed area of 500 square meters. It is fully equipped and supported by highly qualified technical staff to respond to the needs of academic institutions, researchers, engineers and construction industries for testing of:

  1. Reinforced Concrete
  2. Plan Concrete
  3. Prefab Concrete
  4. Steel Structures
  5. Concrete, Steel, Plastic and other materials Pipes
  6. Reinforcement Steel  Bars

Testing Services

The followings are the major tests that can be performed at Soil Mechanics Laboratory :

  1. Compressive Strength of Concrete   Cubs and Cylinders
  2. Bending and Shear Tests for Concrete and Steel Beams
  3. Bending and Shear Tests for Concrete and Steel Columns and Frame
  4. Tensile tests for Reinforced Steel Bars
  5. Testing Masonry Walls


Technical Staff

All tests run by highly qualified engineers and technicians who constantly supervised by experienced faculties in order to assure the compliance of these tests with international standards. Accurateness of computer generated tests results are often verified and thus considered reliable by decision-makers. Quality assurance of material testing services maintained through periodic evaluation programs in term of checking the calibration of the equipment and upgrading them to meet the market demands.
