Floating Concrete
 
Dr. Evan Bentz and his colleagues at the University of Toronto’s Mark Huggins Structures Laboratory perform leading-edge research into the behavior of reinforced concrete under extreme conditions. To keep pace with significant advances in concrete materials science, however, they realized that they needed to test with far higher levels of control and precision than their existing Shell Element Test (SET) system was capable of delivering. By leveraging advanced MTS servocontrols, hydraulic distribution and state-of-the-art test application software, they were able to update their existing SET system to more accurately simulate the real-world operating conditions of today’s stronger reinforced concrete structures.

MTS helps a marine products manufacturer become a preferred engineering and testing resource for its customers
 
Whenever a marine vessel enters a port, a significant amount of energy gets transferred between the berthing vessel and the rigid docking structure in place to receive it. Maritime International Inc., headquartered in Broussard, Louisiana, specializes in the engineering and manufacturing of fendering systems designed to safely absorb the momentum of berthing vessels, helping to protect both docks and ships.

MTS shake table supports seismic testing of wind turbine structure
 
How well would a wind turbine withstand an earthquake? That is the question that the George Brown, Jr., Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) set out to answer.
