Recent Delivery in Kingsbury Hall

Professor Korkolis recently took delivery of a 250 kN (55 kips) servohydraulic testing machine. Moving that machine to Kings S211 was a difficult job, that took a crew of 4 more than 7 hours. The machine adds new capabilities in both monoto...nic and fatigue testing of materials, and will also be used to study the forming limits of steel tubes, for manufacturing applications. For a more complete list of the testing equipment available in Kings S211, take a look here.
