Lab of soils and building materials

The lab incorporates a complex of labs (soils mechanics, building material studies) equipped with up-to-date testing devices.

The lab allows

- testing of building materials, structures and products: determination of physical and mechanical properties of cement, aggregates for exposed finish and mortars (sand, crushed stone, gravel), artificial stone materials (light and heavy aggregate concrete, building mortars, concrete and reinforced concrete structures and products, silica and loam bricks, stones

- testing of soils: defining physical, deformational and strength characteristics, share of organic substances, filtration coefficient, seasonal freezing and thawing depth, frost susceptibility, static and dynamic sounding, triaxial compression of soils in stabilometer lab of numerical modeling: Plaxis, Ansys, Geostudio
