March 2023 Site Tour SCDOT OMR
A big thank you to SC DOT for a fantastic tour of the Office of Materials and Research Lab in Columbia. This lab tests soils, concrete, asphalt and material that goes into our road projects. Supplier material is tested for strength, cold, heat, viscocity, longevity, friction and water. We witnessed concrete break testing, water testing and saw lots of classic pencil sharpeners!
Thank you to Merrill Zwanka, Temple Short and staff for a great tour.

Our tour exposed us to all the tools the scientists of IBHS use to analyze and test risks, including a MASSIVE wind tunnel.
