Il Materials and Structures Testing Laboratory it is located in the Dogana locality, in the industrial area of ​​the Republic of San Marino. The laboratory's equipment and testing machines are housed in a large building with a surrounding area for storing materials.

The Materials and Structures Testing Laboratory plays an important role in support for the teaching and research activities of teachersresearchers e and students pertaining to the Degree Course in Civil Engineering, with particular reference to the following disciplines: Building Science and TechnologyStructural designBuildings in seismic areaDynamics of structuresAutomatic calculation of StructuresTechnical Architecture e Building element technology.

In addition, the Laboratory carries out an extensive third party activities which consists, in particular, in the release of the certificates of tests carried out on materials from construction and in the verifications of calibration on machinery and equipment used in private laboratories.

The Materials and Structures Testing Laboratory is able to carry out a wide range of tests on building and construction materials, especially on concretes traditional and high-performance (e.g. fiber-reinforced concrete, self-compacting concrete, etc…), bricksflooring materialsnatural stonessandsgravels, its steels for reinforcing concrete normal and precompressed and for metallic carpentry works, its masonry subjected to static and dynamic loads, on manufactured goodsconstruction elements e scale structures real.

The Materials and Structures Testing Laboratory will make use of the Quality system through which it is intended to obtain the accreditation of the certification in the European context.
