CIVIL ENGINEERING LABORATORIES

The Civil Engineering Research Laboratories (labsIC) has been financed through FEDER programs. The infrastructure has laboratories of Transport Engineering, Construction Materials, Durability, Structural and Soil Engineering. There are also a number of common facilities for all of them as wet chambers with computer controlled environments; Furnace-Room with 1 m3 capacity and up to 1000ºC able to simulate programmed heating curves. The central laboratory has 300 m2 with a 50 kN crane bridge and a reaction slab of 100 m2. On this strong floor, it is possible to anchor specimens to be tested with high versatility due to the anchor point’s matrix of 1x1 m with a capacity of 500 kN per anchor point in tension and / or compression.

On this Central Laboratory, there are two high capacity porticos with hydraulic servo actuators of 700 kN and 2500 kN. The 2500 kN structure allows testing specimens up to 5 m in height against vertical tensile and compression loads, while the 700 kN has the possibility to introduce vertical or horizontal loads with a height of between 1 and 5 m, with a free light of 5 m. Hydraulic actuators control these equipment’s so that their positioning in height from height 0.5 m up to 5 m in height is made fully automated.
