Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Structural Engineering (JKLSE) is authorized in September, 2005 and dependent on Suzhou University of Science and Technology.
There is a group of members with high scientific research level, consisting of 11 professors and 9 associate professors. Among all members, 13 personnel have Doctor’s degree, 4 personnel are able to enroll PhD candidates, and 13 personnel are able to enroll postgraduates for Master degree.
In the field of disaster prevention and reduction, some advancing research projects have been studied in the lab, including the hysteretic behavior, failure principle and seismic design strategy of steel structures, numerical simulation of fluctuation and engineering practice, fire resisting behavior of composite structures, and structural seismic testing. These have been full of achievements, formed unique research characteristic, and have some effect on the academic communities in China.
In recent years, more than150 academic papers have been published, among which 90 academic papers have been published in core periodicals at home and aboard and international conferences and 30 academic papers have been included in SCI, EI and ISTP. Many achievements have been rewarded by different administrations.
Total area of the lab is 3600m2, among which 2480m2 is used to be research offices, 800m2 is used to be structural testing hall, 160m2 is used to be fire resisting testing lab, and 260m2 is used to be manufacturing field of structural specimens.
