load frames for testing concrete and asphalt load response, curing
chambers, a freeze-thaw chamber, an optical microscopy room, an impact
for large-scale steel or concrete members, and all utilities required
support the work involved.In addition
to traditional materials preparation and testing capabilities for
steel, soil, aggregate, and asphalt, CITEL houses sophisticated and
