Developing a Deeper Understanding of Construction Materials and Components
Leading-edge structural designs require new, higher-performing materials. That’s why civil engineers constantly strive to develop stronger, more durable construction materials and components, and to gain deeper insight into how existing materials behave.
To achieve these objectives and satisfy industry standards, civil engineers must understand how construction materials and components perform under a full spectrum of real-world conditions. This requires conducting accurate and repeatable compression, tension, and bend/flex testing, as well as fatigue, fracture mechanics and dynamic characterization studies.
