Synopsis:

The role of an experiment as a mean of verification of steel and concrete structures. Theory of experiment, measurement systems, model analogy, evaluation of results. Examples of determination of stresses in a structure, static load test, dynamic load test, modal analysis, destructive and nondestructive determination of characteristics of a material and a structure. Evaluation of seminary experiment.
