Research Centre for Building Materials and Construction

Laboratory of Building Materials and  Structures was established in 1961 as research laboratory. In 1991 laboratory was attested for performance of tests and certification of quality of building materials and products, measurements of parameters of production processes and attestation of technological lines. In 1994 this laboratory was awarded a status of Research Laboratory of Building Materials and Constructions; it became independent division of Faculty of Civil Engineering. In 1999 laboratory was accredited by Lithuanian National Accreditation Bureau for performance of tests of various building materials, products and structures.

Based on the Laboratory, Building Materials and  Structures Research Centre was established in 2005.

Recently this centre is managed by Dr. Ernestas Ivanauskas.

 
 
 
 
  • Research centre performs projects of scientific activities and experimental development, related to improvement of technologies for concrete and reinforced concrete products. It provides scientific and practical consultations and prepares recommendation for production and construction companies. Results are introduced at the companies of Lithuanian construction industry.

  • Since 2012 research centre assesses characteristics of self-compacting concrete, which receives more and more attention from customers, according to the standard LST EN 206-9.

  • Since 12 2012, when standard LST 1974:2012 came into force, attrition rates XM1...XM3 of concrete can be chosen by designers. KTU research centre is the only centre in Lithuania, which can offer the test for attrition rates of concrete according to LST EN 1338, Appendix G.

  • Since 2013 research centre performs tests of all elements of environmental procedures according to standards LST EN 1338, 1339, 1340, i.e., has a chance to assess compliance of concrete paving units, concrete tiles and edgings with standard's requirements. Research area was expanded by assessment of natural stone according to standards LST EN 1926 and LST EN 1936. These research methods were included in the area of accreditation, because recently customers are particularly interested in trials of these products.
