Welcome to the Structural Research Laboratory

The Structural Research Laboratory is located in the South Park Annex of the University of Houston. The facility includes 30 ft. by 60 ft. and 20 ft. by 60 ft. strong floors and houses over two million dollars worth of test equipment, including a biaxial fatigue testing machine, a 2.5 million pound MTS test system, and a universal panel tester. The universal panel tester can be used to perform biaxial and triaxial tests and is the only one of its kind in the United States and the most versatile of the three panel testers in the world. The laboratory also offers a fully equipped welding shop and concrete casting room, as well as student and faculty office space and a conference room.
