The High Bay Lab


This is a large versatile testing facility with a three-story clear height located in the George Washington University's Science and Engineering Hall. The lab features an integrated reinforced "strong wall" and "strong floor" which can be used to carry out a wide range of tests on large-scale structural components and assemblies of up to 100 million pounds of force. The lab includes a 20-ton double girder overhead roof crane, a dedicated loading bay at the mezzanine level, a concrete mixing room, an equipment room and a machine shop. Both undergraduate and graduate students are involved in experimental research programs performed in the High Bay Lab.
