Equipment and facilities

The group has an extensive portfolio of test equipment and computation resources currently based around two laboratory facilities. The shaking table forms the core of the Earthquake and Large Structures (EQUALS) Laboratory and the Geomechanics Laboratories incorporates a wide range of static and dynamic soil testing equipment.  

The group has recently been awarded funding for two new facilities which will be part of the national UKCRIC portfolio. The Soil-Foundation-Structure Interaction (SoFSI) facility will be a large reconfigurable facility capable of testing large foundations, reinforced soil slopes and piles under static and dynamic loading. The second is a systems-scale  for the long-term monitoring, testing and modelling of integrated urban infrastructure systems and their interactions.
