Paper Title:
Comparison of In Situ and Laboratory Testing for the Characterization of Old Timber Beams before and after Intervention
  Abstract

In this paper an investigation campaign, carried out in occasion of the restoration of a timber floor in the Belasi Castle (Trentino, Italy), is reported. In order to validate a testing procedure for the calibration and control of an innovative wood-wood strengthening technique, results of tests performed in situ on the structural elements, in both the original and the repaired condition, have been compared with those obtained in laboratory on some dismantled beams. For the characterization of the material decay, both local mechanical and global vibrational testing have been carried out. For the mechanical characterization of the beams, before and after repair, direct static bending tests have been performed, with distributed loads, on site, and according to standard four-points loading schemes, in laboratory.
