The Danish Technological Institute, Concrete can tailor individual test set-ups for experimental testing of complete structures or structural elements.
Testing covers among other areas:
- Testing of load-bearing capacity and and deformation properties
- Load tests on site
- Assessment of moisture movement
- Investigation of assembly details
Testing is not limited to concrete structures.
Our laboratory is equipped with among other things a large frame press which makes it possible to test large structural elements in the laboratory. An example of a full-scale laboratory test is described in Measured and predicted deformations in hardening Concrete. We also carry out field metrology of e.g. temperatures, deformation, loads, moisture, etc. as well as continuous remote metrological monitoring using the metrology system Guardian.
In addition, standard testing of concrete is also carried out.
