Multi-Axial Subassemblage Test System (MAST)

Conduct high-force, six-degree-of-freedom (6DOF) quasi-static and dynamic testing of beam-column frame systems, walls, bridge piers, abutments, and more to the point of failure in controlled laboratory settings. Our high-capacity test system provides researchers with the data needed to improve design codes and develop next-generation building materials, components, and structures.
