Unique laboratory opens at Queen's University

from Canadian Architect

The Reactor Materials Testing Laboratory has opened at Queen's University in Kingston, ON. Designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects, the specialized lab is able to simulate conditions that materials experience inside a nuclear reactor and will advance research into next generation power plants. The central feature of the off-campus, one-storey structure is a large accelerator that generates a beam of high-energy protons. Encased in a reinforced concrete chamber, it can test the stresses, temperature and other conditions found in metallic components of an operational reactor core. more
