Moisture content and material density affects severity of frost damage in earthen heritage

Abstract:

Successful conservation of earthen heritage requires an understanding of interactions between environmental and climatic conditions, soil-based materials and human interventions. Frost cycling is likely to be an important contributor to the deterioration of earthen heritage, with frost damage known to cause deterioration features such as flaking and granular disintegration. However, it is not clear how important a contribution frost cycling makes in comparison with other agents. Previous eart...
