What Are Test Chambers?

Test chambers are enclosed spaces used to conduct scientific experiments or test the effects of environmental conditions on test subjects. The controlled environment of a test chamber allows researchers to accurately replicate conditions while keeping a close eye on the specimen. Charles F. Conrad innovated the first environmental test chamber on his front porch in Holland, MI in 1951, by purposing a residential freezer to reach temperatures of -125℉. General Motors Heat Treat Lab decided to purchase it, and quickly ordered two more.

In the decades that have followed, test chambers have been designed and used to simulate a wide range of conditions, from extreme cold and heat, humidity or replicating various altitudes.

One of the main advantages of using test chambers is that they allow for very precise control of numerous different environmental factors. This means that Washington, DC researchers can be confident the integrity of their research.
