Concrete and Materials Laboratory
Sectional Directorate
It was established to perform physical, mechanical and petrographical experiments on many
kinds of construction materials such as aggregate, cement, concrete, chemical admixtures,
rubbers, plastics, geosyntetics, metals and rocks, to find solutions to the issues related to building
materials, and to carry our research on these materials.
Subdivisions
Concrete and Materials Laboratory is composed of 5 subdivisions:
Concrete Laboratory,
Cement Laboratory,
Material Laboratory,
Rock Mechanics Laboratory,
