The Mechanical Testing Laboratory focuses on the mechanical behavior of constructions and the associated material behavior. Also involved is research on material structure, the basis of mechanical behavior, looking from nanometers up to meters. De participating research groups are working with divers materials, like rubber, plastics, metal, composite and biological materials. The experiments and equipment used for measurements for this research are joined in the Mechanical Testing Laboratory and are listed on this site.
Prof. Dr. Ir. Ton van den Boogaard coordinates the Mechanical Testing Laboratory.
