In the Structure Laboratory, they study the behavior of structures. The major railway infrastructures and bridges are instrumented and monitored by the Laboratory of Structures.

The Luiz I bridge, for example, is being monitored since 2008 to assess its behavior after the implementation of the Metro line. In this laboratory, with the help of a huge seismic table is predicted the behavior of the structures. For these activities are used optical and electrical acquisition systems for structural monitoring associated to programs of nonlinear structural analysis and algorithms for data analysis of structural monitoring.
