Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory (GSL)

01

Bridging the gap

We're testing a temporary floating bridge that will make transporting vehicles across bodies of water more efficient than ever.

02

Rapidly repairing airfields

With our process to repair large areas of damaged airfields, runways can be up and running within hours instead of weeks, even in remote areas.

03

Testing the Titan

The world's heaviest vehicle simulator has a new home. The HVS Titan will expand ERDC's infrastructure research for the Department of Defense.

Welcome
