Laboratory for structural testing of resilient and sustainable systems (STReSS Laboratory)
This report summarizes the features and specifications for the Laboratory for Structural Testing of Resilient and Sustainable Systems (STReSS Laboratory). The laboratory was constructed as part of the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security on the Burlington Campus of Northeastern University. The laboratory is used for coupled experimental, computational, and field investigations across several disciplines of civil engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering mechanics, biomechanics, materials science, architecture, and related fields. Drawings of the facility and ancillary test results from the construction of the strong floor are included in appendices.
