The indoor exhibit of the Market Gate of Miletus is unique for an archaeological monument. The reconstruction of the gate was done in such a way that most marble fragments were removed leaving cored marble columns 3–4 cm in thickness. These cored columns were mounted on a steel construction and filled with different mortars or filled with specially shaped blocks of brick combined with mortar. All the missing marble elements were replaced by copies made of a Portland cement based concrete, which… 

Use of colloidal silica to obtain a new inert from municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) fly ash: first results about reuse

The MSWI (Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator) fly ash may represent a potential health and environmental hazard for its high heavy metal content. Fly ash is commonly disposed in specific landfills to



Marble bowing: comparative studies of three different public building facades

The veneer cladding of the Oeconomicum (OEC, Göttingen), the State Theatre of Darmstadt (STD, Darmstadt) and of the State and University Library (SUB, Göttingen) is characterised by pronounced bowing

Physical weathering of marbles caused by anisotropic thermal expansion

Abstract Marbles as building stones as well as in their natural environments show complex weathering phenomena. The most important damage scenario is based on the highly anisotropic thermal expansion

The combined effect of moisture and temperature on the anomalous expansion behaviour of marble

Three calcitic marble types often used as cladding material and different in lattice preferred orientation (texture), grain shape preferred orientation, grain size distribution and grain interlocking

Gefügekontrollierte Verwitterung natürlicher und konservierter Marmore

The present work deals with fabric controlled weathering processes of natural and consolidated marbles. The research bases on the comparison of rock properties in five different conditions: fresh,
