Studies on the frost resistance of natural stone
Research output: Thesis › Licentiate Thesis
This work deals with the effects of freeze-thawing on the deterioration of some types of natural stone, especially stones frequently used in old buildings in Sweden. Laboratory studies were performed mainly on Gotland sandstone. This stone has been widely used in old buildings in the whole Baltic region, and is often badly deteriorated. A granite from Bohuslän Province in Sweden was studied as well, as there are problems with degradation of the granite rock carvings from the Bronze Age.
