Carbonate stone : chemical behavior, durability, and conservation

Author: K Lal Gauri; Jayanta K Bandyopadhyay
Publisher: New York : Wiley, 1999.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"The chemical decay of carbonate rock is a phenomenon of the twentieth century - the result of industrial pollutants reacting with both exposed and protected stone in monuments, buildings, and sites. This work explains in depth the combined effects of weathering and pollution on carbonate stone, providing readers with effective tools to analyze structures and take the appropriate preservation steps."--BOOK JACKET.  Read more...

Abstract:

"The chemical decay of carbonate rock is a phenomenon of the twentieth century - the result of industrial pollutants reacting with both exposed and protected stone in monuments, buildings, and sites. This work explains in depth the combined effects of weathering and pollution on carbonate stone, providing readers with effective tools to analyze structures and take the appropriate preservation steps."--BOOK JACKET. "Carbonate Stone: Chemical Behavior, Durability, and Conservation is an indispensable guide for scientists, engineers, and professionals in the conservation field. Architects and engineers involved in the development of new structures and sites will also benefit from the quantitative approach to the information on carbonate rocks."--Jacket.
