Experimental facilities

University Gustave Eiffel disposes of several important experimental facilities associated with its domains of expertise. More details may be found on the webpage of each laboratory. It also disposes of large scale facilities rather unique at national or international level:


  • A geotechnical centrifuge with an earthquake simulator and an boarded robot allowing investigations on foundations (Nantes campus),
  • A large fatigue cable test bench allowing real scale tests (Nantes campus),
  • A large civil engineering test bed (Marne La Vallée campus),
  • An ultrasonic measurement bench allowing to assess the suitability of geophysics methodologies (Nantes campus),
  • A mechanical test bed (Nantes campus),
  • A semi-anechoic chamber for acoustic investigations (Nantes campus).
