Wet Lab 3Wet Lab 3 (MEB 2473, 700 sq ft) is dedicated to various types of biomechanical testing including material testing and analysis of whole joint kinematics. It is equipped with a dedicated dissection area.

Equipment include:

  • A/D hardware/software
  • Qualisys high-resolution motion analysis system with 1 camera
  • Spicatek Digitial Motion analysis system with 3 cameras (Pulnix 1024x1024x30 fps) and high-magnification optics
  • 3 eight-channel signal conditioner/amplifiers
  • active filters, power supplies
  • A/D equipment, force, pressure and strain transducers with appropriate circuitry
  • fume hood and freezer

This lab houses three material testing systems:

  • a MTS Bionix 858 servohydraulic test machine
  • a custom-built high resolution (0.3 microns) mini-materials test machine
  • a custom-built electromechanical multiaxial materials test machine.

Three computers are used for control and data acquisition, and the lab includes desk space for one person.
