Zum Inhalt

Salts in monumental built heritage and stone sculptures are still today a major problem in preservation. This book focuses on environmental aspects related to salt sources, transport phenomena and salt crystallisation, measurement techniques, desalination techniques, conservation issues and case studies. The papers build upon contributions of the Fourth International Conference on Salt Weathering of Buildings and Stone Sculptures (SWBSS) held 2017 at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences, Germany. The conference brought together conservators, restorers, engineers, architects, academics, students and experienced researchers and hence contributes to the promotion of research and development within the field of salt weathering of porous materials.
