Mechanical Engineering lab at The University of Tulsa

The Department of Mechanical Engineering is located in Stephenson Hall, a $16.1 million facility that serves UTulsa’s mechanical and petroleum engineering programs. Stephenson Hall features the following research and teaching lab facilities:

  • A newly opened 3D printing lab
  • Modern computer labs with access to all major solid modeling programs and finite element and computational fluid mechanics programs
  • A student project lab
  • A recently renovated instrumentation and experimental design lab
  • Materials characterization labs that include electromechanical and servohydraulic load frames
  • Advanced electron microscopy

Our faculty members regularly participate in joint industry projects and research consortiums that employ specialized equipment in Stephenson Hall, Keplinger Hall, and North Campus.

UTulsa’s Fatigue Lab houses modern servohydraulic testing systems and load frames ranging from 5kn to 220kn that are available for the measurement of stress and strain. This facility also has the capability to perform 3D digital image correlation for the full-field measurement of strains on complicated geometries.

The Nanotechnology Lab is an interdisciplinary facility that houses a state-of-the-art duel beam scanning electron microscope and focused ion beam system. The lab’s main attraction is a FEI Helios NanoLab SEM/FIB acquired through a grant from the National Science Foundation. This facility has SEM capabilities, E-beam Lithography, EDS, Cryo-SEM and a complete FIB hardware and software suite. For more details, please visit the lab’s website at nanolab.ens.utulsa.edu.
