Dimension Stone Cladding: Design, Construction, Evaluation, by Kurt R. Hoigard, editor

By Kurt R. Hoigard, editor

STP 1394 covers the most recent thoughts in new stone cladding and the rehabilitation of current stone cladding installations. thirteen peer-reviewed papers are grouped into 4 sections: Stone Cladding Preconstruction Evaluation--examines doctoral thesis study paintings played on the collage of Illinois, concerning the use of impulse-generated tension waves as a nondestructive technique of picking stone homes. Stone Weathering And Durability--details tools of sturdiness evaluate at present utilized in the U.S. and eu group; discusses the relationships among crystalline constitution, thermal hysteresis, and bowing of Carrara marble panels; and gives a case heritage assessing the foundation reasons of weathering-induced harm to an eighty yr previous granite facade and explores various restorative remedy tools. layout Of Stone Cladding Systems--addresses granite layout concerns concerning wind and gravity aid platforms. research And recovery Of present Stone Cladding Systems--offer various case experiences, observations, and particular concepts concerning investigative skill and service tools used to deal with distressed stone facades. This e-book may be of curiosity to • Designers • construction vendors • Architects • Engineers • Contractors • Rehabilitation experts

D) ~,,D) =C d/D (3) where Cr, Cs, Ca are material constants [11]. In the case of quasi-isotropic materials, (CrV4=S), where S is the scattering parameter whose units is in lmm/ms)a, V is either the transverse or longitudinal propagation velocity. Similarly, (CsV =T) and (Co=U) where T and U are scattering parameters. For spherical scatterers, D is the diameter. For irregular grains, fractal analysis is used to determine a representative diameter, but the largest dimension of the grain is usually taken.

Clearly, there is a need for validation and/or modification of existing theories for the time scales and constitution of stone components. ,)~>>D) as described by Equation (1). , ~<

In this paper, by using a diffuse wave energy approach and principles of Statistical Energy Analyses (SAE) [7,21-25], an impact-echo methodology is presented that nondestructively estimates the viscoelastic properties of dimension stones. The proposed method is relatively fast, reliable, economical, and may be conveniently used in the laboratory or in the field [26,27]. ) is described as Mm* = Mmr+jMmi = Mmr(l+jqm) (1) where Mmr and Mmi = qqmMmrare the real and the imaginary (loss) parts of the particular mode m with loss tangent qm = tan era, and where (~m is the strain phase lag angle relative to the applied stress9 Several techniques can be used to evaluate the dynamic moduli of viscoelastic materials [ 7,11,13].
