The Soete laboratory (department of Mechanical Construction and Production) belongs to the Metal Structures Centre (MSC) and conducts basic research in the following fields:
- Strain-based design of flawed welds;
- Tribology and fatigue;
- Plasticity;
- Structure - property relations;
- Finite element modelling;
- Design of structures, components and products;
- Safety.

The marine research focuses on the assessment of abrasive wear of shackle chains of trawl nets, defective welds in offshore pipelines, fatigue analysis of steel used in offshore structures as well as the study of the mechanical behaviour of polymer composite used in marine applications.

In addition, the Soete laboratory offers services to industrial customers and partners in the fields of weld testing, fracture mechanics, failure analysis, tribology and fatigue.
