This week Professors and students from the MSL and the Nanomaterials and Characterization Lab worked together in preparing the previous MTEL lab for new flooring! This preparation involved the relocation of various lab equipment, storage units, and heavy testing equipment.
The images above show the relocation process for the largest tensile testing unit in the lab. This unit is capable of applying a tensile force of 55 kip while weighing just a little less than 1 ton!
This pair of images shows a before and after view of the space. Now it's time for renovations. Special thanks go out to all those who assisted in the cleanup as well as those who took extra care to ensure the safety of the helpers.
