Gene D. Knudson Wood Engineering Laboratory

Much of the experimental research in wood structures is conducted at the Gene D. Knudson Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Wood Science and engineering in Richardson Hall on the OSU campus. A 3,000 sf. high-bay facility with 12 ft. high L-shaped reaction wall and 60x40 foot reaction floor to accommodate dynamic testing of large wood components and structural systems. It is equipped with servo-hydraulic test systems as well as specialized features.
