Abstract: Non-standard tests are carried out on specimens made of materials extracted from historical objects, and they typically have non standard dimensions. Assessments of strengthening effects are also usually studied on non-standard specimens purposely designed and made of materials modelling the historic materials. The tests themselves are destructive, as engineers prefer destructive tests on a real material for a better understanding of the real material behaviour. Destructive tests provide a better opportunity to acquire data for numerical modelling and for following the gradients of qualities, namely after consolidation interventions. The tests include compression tests, bending tests, shear tests, and a series of tests on specific specimens designed for studies of consolidation effects.
