The MASTRLAB laboratory operates in the field of experimental scientific research on structures made of traditional and innovative building materials. The Laboratory is official under the Law 1086 of 5/11/1971 “Norme per la disciplina delle opere di conglomerato cementizio armato, normale e precompresso ed a struttura metallica”.
The activity carried out concerns fields of application such as the behavior of reinforced concrete and c.a.p, structures, experiments on beam-pillar structural nodes, the study of the constitutive laws of traditional and innovative building materials, the assessment of structural safety, durability and seismic vulnerability.
MASTRLAB also deals with non-destructive tests (core drilling, ultrasound, extraction, impact, etc.), and with the design and development of innovative structural monitoring systems, as well as the design and development of innovative methodologies for carrying out mechanical tests on materials and structural elements.
The Laboratory is the seat of the Force Section of the ACCREDIA LAT Calibration Laboratory n. 139 of the Politecnico di Torino for the calibration of material testing machines, and is also accredited according to UNI CEI EN ISO / IEC 17025
