Verification of the basic properties of aggregates, key to the design of concrete recipes, such as bulk density, absorbency, granulometry, frost resistance). Equipment for treatment of test samples (laboratory jaw crusher for larger aggregate samples, laboratory mill for fine fractions).
Verification of mechanical and deformation properties of concrete and mortar. Primarily compressive and tensile strength after bending and modulus of elasticity (Press for testing mechanical properties). Simple tensile strength (tear test device).
Tests of concretes and mortars and their resistance to freezing and thawing and chemical deicing agents (freezing equipment). Verification of carbonation of concrete (incubator with CO2).
Design and development of structures and structural elements from advanced cement-based materials. Focusing mainly on high-quality concrete with unconventional reinforcement and concrete with recycled aggregate.
