University of Arkansas Grady E. Harvell Civil Engineering Research and Education Center
University of Arkansas
The new civil engineering facility allows the university's research and training disciplines to be located within a single complex. The center will provide the capability to evaluate full-scale structural elements, such as beams and girders for buildings, bridges, etc., as well as soils, asphalt, and concrete. The high-bay structures laboratory will feature a structural testing floor, associated materials preparation and testing areas, and adjacent office and research spaces for lab personnel. The lab will support both graduate and undergraduate civil engineering students (250 students per year) and graduate research (25 students per year), as well as faculty in civil engineering.
