Our research facilities are located at the William Rankine Building, within the University of Edinburgh's King's Buildings Campus, in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. This building and the neighbouring Alexander Graham Bell Building host the Institute for Infrastructure and Environment.
The SMC infrastructure provides extensive cleanroom facilities with the bandwidth to undertake research requiring access to smart microsystems technology as well as an environment which can host staff from collaborating industries.
The recently refurbished Structures Test Hall is our high-headroom lab for testing large and unusual structural assemblies.
The strong floor and reaction frame systems give great versatility in the types of test that we can carry out, and we have a state of the art Instron actuator system for applying two independent loads under precise computer control.
