Abstract

Five different types of natural stone used for building façades are studied. Test specimens have been exposed to 1, 10 or 20 temperature cycles between about 25°C and 70°C at 100% RH or 0% RH. Test specimens stored at laboratory climate are used as reference. The strength of each type of stone is measured before and after exposures. The strength is measured as flexural strength under concentrated load using quarter-point loading.
