The central objective of this laboratory, which is integrated in the Transport Infrastructures Division, is the study of traffic and road safety through the characterization, analysis, control and management of mobility. It has a DriS Driving Simulator, in order to analyse difficult to reproduce driving situations.
The main objective of this laboratory, which is integrated in the Hydraulics, Water Resources and Environment Division, is the experimental study of urban and industrial wastewater treatment, the characterization of industrial effluents, sludge and river water, and the elaboration of essays on water and wastewater treatment.
The activity of this laboratory, associated with the Geotechnics Division, is developed in the following fields: prospecting, field and laboratory tests and observation and characterization of natural land masses and anisotropic geotechnical construction works, as well as specialized tests in the mechanics of soils and rocks.
This Laboratory supports experimental research activities in the area of Structural Dynamics, aiming at the characterization of vibratory environments, the analysis, identification and monitoring of the dynamic behaviour of structures and the control of vibrations. It’s associated with the Structures and the Construction Materials Divisions.
This laboratory deals with the development of cement materials (structural concrete, among others), the design and advanced analysis of structures, experimental analysis and observation of construction works, as well as structural reinforcement and rehabilitation. It is associated with the Structures Division.
