Main Directions of Scientific Investigations

Development of new technologies for the production of Portland cements, concretes for special pur­poses; development of new technologies of natural sand enrichment; research and development of con­crete with the use of micro- and nano-additives, as well as high-strength concrete; development of new technologies of concrete products manufacturing; study of reinforcement state in concrete, the develop­ment of methods to improve its corrosion resistance, and corrosion resistance of concrete in various ag­gressive environments and development of technologies for its improvement; development of computer system for the selection of compounds of heavy concrete.

 

Provided Services

Testing of industrial products under the procedures of parameters confirmation of conformity with na­tional and international standards; carrying out of tests of building materials and products for the pur­pose of Declaration of products mandatory and voluntary certification, works on technical evaluation of the suitability of building materials and products for the design and construction the use of which have an impact on compliance with the mandatory requirements of reliability and safety of buildings, struc­tures, and elements of internal engineering systems; conduct full-scale tests and supervising the con­struction of buildings and structures using non-destructive methods of control; calibration; the selection of the concrete composition.

 

Major Achievements

The laboratory staff participated on the scientific and technical support for the following construction projects: multi-purpose sports and entertainment arena "Minsk-Arena"; repair of the runway at Minsk Na­tional airport; reconstruction of the preparatory workshop №1 JSC "Belshina" (Bobruisk, Belarus); recon­struction of the biathlon stadium and shooting field of the Republican training center for winter sports "Raubichi" and others.

RTL CCM has modern technical facilities, including a number of unique test equipment for flue pipes, pipes for pipelines, plastics and other industrial products. Used equipment is constantly updated and sup­plemented in accordance with modern methods of research and testing.
