The laboratory is equipped with HBM strain gauge sets, National Instruments measuring cards and software for processing results, an Olympus i-Speed 2 speed camera and a laser Doppler vibrometer. These instruments and laboratory equipment are used to teach the subjects of Laboratory I (LA1) and Experimental Methods of Elasticity (EMPP).
This laboratory is intended for experimental activities in the framework of R&D projects. The laboratory has a measurement track for assessing the properties of catalytic filters under conditions approaching those of the actually investigated and developed filtration materials. The laboratory is also used for the research part of doctoral study programmes. In relation to the Competence Centre Advanced Technologies for Heat and Electricity Production, the laboratory uses another test track in the Liberec municipal waste incineration plant TERMIZO, a.s.
The expansive underground spaces of the Josef Underground Learning Centre (UEF) operated by CTU provides a wide range of possibilities for use in various different fields. The Interuniversity underground laboratory (interlaboratory) was created in the framework of the centralized development project “Interuniversity collaboration in the development of the Joseph underground laboratory in the area of storage of hazardous substances and gases”. The project is jointly solved by the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague, Institute of Chemical Technology Prague, Masaryk University in Brno and the Technical University of Liberec.
