Resistographic analysis on timber

Work civile

The resistographic test is a survey technique that allow us to investigate the mechanical properties of timber structural elements and the density variations between healthy and degraded timber. The resistance opposed to the drilling of the wood depends on the density and represents one of the most important characteristic values ​​of the material, allowing conclusions to be drawn about the quality of the material in a particular section.

Given its non-destructive feature, this technique is widely used as part of the restoration of existing facilities and is also suitable for investigating hystorical structures of particular value, allowing us to make an immediate in-situ diagnosis of the quality status of the timber under consideration.

In sum, this tool allows you to get information on the conservation status of the wooden elements in those areas where the structure is not available or in cases in which the visual investigation does not return a clear answer to the technician.
