Detailed item information

Offers insights into the nature of decay processes and the factors that control them. This book covers the mapping of facades to explain rates of decay associated with conservation actions; the laboratory simulation of corrosion in polluted atmospheres; the quantification of colour change through a study of the artificial ageing of building stone.

Author BiographyBernard J. Smith, School of Geosciences, The Queen's University, Belfast His research interests centre around weathering in a variety of geomorphological settings. Most work at present is, however, concentrated on investigations into urban stone decay. These include: stress inheritance in stone, concepts of durability, microfracturing in granites, short-term exposure trials of building stones and the difficulties of projecting the long-term behaviour of stone in buildings. This work is supported by two current EPSRC grants on 'the effects of surface alteration of stone on moisture and pollutant uptake' and 'The catastrophic decay of building sandstones'. Alice V. Turkington Alice Turkington is Assistant Professor at the Department of Geography, University of Kentucky. Her PhD. at the Queen's University, Belfast was 'The durability of sandstone in salt-rich environments'.
