Research Resources

The Following Research Resources are available for use at the School of Engineering.
  • 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.

    The Structures Lab
  • The foundation of our research is our expertise in civil engineering structures (such as bridges and buildings) and a detailed understanding of the mechanics of constructions materials (such as steel and concrete).

    Structures modelling
  • The School of Engineering is a partner in Synthsys, the Centre for Synthetic and Systems Biology which is an interdisciplinary research environment with members across many Research Institutes, Colleges and Schools, including The University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and BioSS.

    SynthSys, Synthetic and Systems Biology
  • The UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) leads and coordinates a programme of underpinning research on all aspects of CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) in support of basic science and UK government efforts on energy and climate change.
