Brief description of lab

The Laboratory for Resilient Steel and Smart Structures is equipped with state-of-the-art testing facilities to conduct full-scale tests of structural connections, elements, and systems subject to various types of loadings due to the hazards. Advanced numerical and computations techniques are also employed to complement the experimental results and enhance the understanding of the structural performance and behaviour of structural elements and systems to achieve structural resilience.
