About Structural Engineering Laboratory

The Structural Engineering Laboratory at Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur serves a wide spectrum of activities covering those related to teaching, research, development, and consultancy. The primary activities include experimental studies on model/prototype of structural elements and assemblies under various static and dynamic loading conditions.

With the available test area, state-of-the-art load/displacement-controlled equipment for load application, precision instrumentation, online data acquisition and monitoring, the laboratory represents a unique facility for large and full scale investigation of the load-deformation behaviour of structures including their post-peak strength and deformability up to the failure.
