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.
