Building Materials and Building Technology Division

Welcome at the Building Materials and Building Technology Division, in short MAT, which is part of the Civil Engineering Department of KULeuven. Research at MAT focuses both on the behaviour of innovative building materials and techniques and on renovation and restoration. Research includes experimental testing, structural modelling, probabilistic analysis, non-destructive techniques and monitoring. In collaboration with building industry and public services, new and innovative materials and techniques are being developed. The experimental research is coordinated at the Reyntjens laboratory.
