SYNOPSIS

Research into the behaviour of concrete structures and publication of papers in international journals and as conference proceedings.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Masera Engineering Group has collaborated on this project with Professor Bocca’s Research Group in the Structural, Geotechnical and Building Engineering Department of the Polytechnic University of Turin.

This experimental program evaluates the performance of new procedures in the damage assessment of granular materials such as concrete structures. Laboratory tests have been conducted on ordinary concrete specimens in order to simulate a possible deterioration process affecting a real structure and then investigate damage levels. The final objective of this preliminary study is to develop an effective non-destructive procedure suitable for on-site use. Experimental research was conducted at the Polytechnic University of Turin’s non-destructive testing laboratory.
