HiRadMat is a new facility under construction at CERN that will provide the users with the possibility to investigate the behavior of materials when irradiated with pulsed high energy and high intensity beams extracted from the CERN SPS. The need for such a facility was raised by the LHC collimation project to bridge the gap in knowledge about the resistance of materials under impact with high energy protons. This talk will review the material parameters for which a deeper knowledge would be needed for extensive use in high energy accelerators, and the kind of test that can be conducted in HiRadMat to improve this knowledge. In particular we will discuss destructive testing, meaning test of materials beyond the limit of rupture or at phase change, and damage testing that should reveal changes in materials properties due to long term irradiation below the rupture limit. The facility could be used as well for calibration of radiation detectors like BLMs. The main difficulty connected with the test is how to observe material changes. Some preliminary ideas on on-line and post-irradiation tests will be outlined.
