Objectives
To provide general concepts for performing experimental tests on structural materials and for interpreting the results.

Program
Concept of measurement. Systems of units of measurement. Basic concepts of statistics and error analysis. Testing equipments for the mechanical characterisation of structural materials. Instruments for measuring lengths, displacements, rotations, deformations, forces and pressures. Standard and advanced laboratory tests for the determination of typical mechanical parameters of structural materials. On-site tests for the determination of the resistance of structural materials. Quality controls of concrete and steel according to relevant technical recommendations.

Laboratory activities
Theory supported by laboratory activities and numerical exercises.

Examination methods
Oral examination, possibly supported by a laboratory evaluation.
