Since mortars play a key role in buildings decay, their suitable choice is critical to the success of restoration projects. The focus of this paper is to characterise the pore structures of a set of mortars and correlate them with mechanical properties and vapour permeability, which are relevant to the decay of granite buildings. Water vapour transport was tested by means of a simple set-up developed in our laboratory. A good correlation was found between total porosity and the two parameters… CONTINUE READING
