For independent testing and analysis services our consultants work in close collaboration with a range of UTS laboratories where they have access to state-of-the art equipment and highly skilled technical staff. If you have a product, piece of equipment or sample that needs testing the full range of UTS laboratories are available to our consultants.

Toggle the Laboratory Type to explore our facilities:

  • Civil Engineering Laboratories
  • Science Laboratories

Consultants and technical staff from the School of Civil & Environmental Engineering are available to assist you with the testing of a wide range of products and equipment. The laboratory team will work closely with you to determine your testing requirements and the standards that apply. The laboratory is equipped with the following state of the art facilities:

Tension and Compression machines

Capable of tests up to 2000kN and 1000mm stroke.

Actuators

Electronically PID controlled. Used for control of loading rate in either force, position control and strain control. Designed for cyclic fatigue testing or precise loading rates. 1000mm deflection range and 2000kN maximum load.

Acquisition Systems

Versatile high speed/high channel count acquisition systems that can have user interfaces and graphs to suit the client. Systems for long-term remote testing and monitored from the office.

Forensic Laboratories

The Forensic Laboratory has various specialised instruments available for applications such as fibre analysis, finger marks detection, chemical trace analysis (including paint, fibres, glass, fire and explosive residues), drug analysis and microscopy analysis.

Microstructural Analysis Unit

The Microstructural Analysis Unit (MAU) includes comprehensive array of analytical microscopy tools as well as materials characterisation and fabrication. The MAU can provide advice and analysis in the areas of:

  • Measurement and testing
  • Materials evaluation and microcharacterisation
  • Chemical and forensic analysis
  • Failure, metallurgical and corrosion analysis
  • Biomaterials analysis.

Instrumentation includes:

  • High resolution SEM (scanning electron microscope) imaging
  • Standard SEM imaging and elemental analysis - elemental mapping available using EDS (energy dispersive spectroscopy)
  • Variable and extended pressure SEM imaging (SEM imaging of hydrated specimens in their natural state, SEM imaging of insulating specimens without coating)
  • X-ray diffraction (XRD) - powder and thin film samples, compound identification, structural phase ID.

Analytical Laboratories

The Analytical Laboratories can cater to a range of analytical questions ranging from structural identification and elucidation to the elemental composition of samples.

Instrumentation includes:

  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS)
  • Quadrupole Time of Flight-Mass Spectrometry (QTOF-MS)
  • Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS)
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
  • Capillary Electrophoresis (CE).

Materials Laboratories

The Materials laboratories provide support for characterisation of physical samples.

Instrumentation includes:

  • Thermogravimetric Analyser TA Instruments SDT 2960 (TG-DTA)
  • Thermomechanical Analyser TA Instruments TMA 2930 (TMA)
  • Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC)
  • SETARAM (TGA-DSC)
