Bovay Laboratory Complex
In the Civil Infrastructure Lab, CEE students receive hands-on experience, observing what large forces and displacements can do to soil, concrete, steel, and other fabricated materials and structures.
In lecture courses, students have learned the fundamentals and built models to predict effects, but it is in the laboratory that such models are tested and validated, often prompting new theories and new models of infrastructure-behavior.
The 12,500-sq-ft Bovay Civil Infrastructure Laboratory Complex has several components:
- The George Winter High Bay
- Richard N. White Instructional Facility
- Leone-Perkins Materials Technology Lab
- Kenneth E. '63 and Ruth Arnold Fabrication and Testing Lab
- Civil Engineering Class of 1949 Curing Room
- Reed L. McJunkin ’32 Electronics Laboratory
- Joseph D. Dreyfuss II ’61 Control Center
