If laboratory tests or model calculations are not sufficient to quantify the risks of hazardous substances, large-scale tests need to be carried out on a scale of 1:1. BAM has been operating a Test Site for Technical Safety (Testgelände Technische Sicherheit - TTS) on an area measuring 12 km2 in Horstwalde in Brandenburg for this purpose since the beginning of the 1990s. True-to-scale experiments are also necessary if, for example, the BAM carries out work in its capacity as a senior federal authority in the field of hazardous substances legislation and explosives law.
