Structural Engineering Laboratory

In this laboratory we study structural integrity and the factors that bear upon it including:

  • Stay cable repair and utilization
  • Damage detection in structures
  • Vibration control and damping
  • The effect of Minnesota aggregates on rapid chloride permeability tests
  • Rehabilitation techniques for concrete bridges
  • Fatigue resistant and monitoring studies for high-performance steel bridges
  • Decision support system for highway bridges
