National Research Facility for Infrastructure Sensing

Interdisciplinary Centre for infrastructure sensors and instrumentation


The Geomechanic Laboratories complement the existing physical modelling and geotechnical testing facilities available at the University of Cambridge - Schofield Centre. They enable fundamental research on soil response at the element level as well as provide the highest quality of complementary data to fully leverage field-testing and monitoring related to infrastructure. The laboratories provide advanced facilities for static element testing, dynamic testing, thermo-hydro-mechanical testing and high pressure - high stiffness testing.
