In the context of the rehabilitation of the Casa de la Prensa of the Universal Exposition of Barcelona in 1929, various tests are carried out on existing construction elements and materials in order to determine their properties and / or structural behavior.
The purpose of carrying out a load test on the slabs is to apply the load established by the standard for the new use of the space. In this case, the load tests would be carried out on three different types of slabs.
The factory walls are evaluated by means of the Montilivi test, where this allows a test to be carried out directly on the wall, in operating conditions, that allows determining the breaking load without having to extract any sample from the wall.
The integrity of the wooden structural elements is verified by resistography
Structural steel is tested for weldability, tensile strength and elastic limit.
