VICKSBURG, Miss. – There are many ways to test the load-bearing capability of structures, and fortunately, the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) has a unique facility to accomplish this task.

When building structures, from bridges to parking garages to office complexes, it is important to know that the structures will withstand the loads they were designed to bear. Usually, this is accomplished by following building codes and design guides, but new designs constructed of novel materials can require additional testing.
