Project: Interactive physical weathering and bioreceptivity study on building stones, monitored by computerized X ray tomography as a potential non destructive research tool.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-93 – 31-DEC-99
- Balegem stone, Carrara marble and puzzolana mortar are subjected to standardized physical weathering and biological deterioriation tests with algue, cyanobacteria, lichens, mosses. After each treatment series, computerized X ray tomography scans are compared with scans of non treated material.
