New lab building of North University of China breaks ground


A new building of the State Key Laboratory of Dynamic Testing Technology broke ground at the North University of China in Taiyuan, capital of North China's Shanxi province, on Nov 29. 

It is the university's first key national lab and will help the university develop world-class instrumental disciplines. 

The lab, launched in 2003, focuses on the research and development of methods, techniques and instruments for the in-situ testing of dynamic process parameters under extreme environments, and solving basic scientific and key technical problems in dynamic testing.

After years of development, the lab has provided over 10,000 products for major national projects concerning manned spaceflight, deep space exploration, and seabed observation, as well as for arms of the sea, land, air, and space. 

It has also offered important technical support for 14 emerging industries in Shanxi, including smart mining, smart equipment, semiconductors, and general aviation.
