The "Geomaterial characterization" laboratory is able to provide the complete physical-mechanical characterization of building stones. The laboratory performs tests according to national and international technical standards (NorMaL, UNI, UNI EN, ASTM, etc.).

Laboratory tests include:

  • Porosity and pore size distribution (macro-meso pores) by mercury intrusion;
  • Open porosity by means of helium intrusion;
  • Uniaxial compressive strength and flexural strength under concentrated load;
  • Abrasion resistance and rupture energy;
  • Water absorption with hydrostatic weighing;
  • Sound speed propagation (P-wave);
  • Expansion of rock specimens by total immersion in water (swelling test);
  • Resistance to ageing by salt mist;
  • Rockwell and Brinell hardness.
