By Stavros K. (Ed.) Kourkoulis,Stavros K. Kourkoulis

The recovery and conservation of stone monuments is a sophisticated multi-disciplinary activity and the choices eventually reached needs to be in keeping with an organization and special wisdom of the mechanical behaviour of either the actual fabrics and the bogus stones. during this quantity scientists from various disciplines (Structural Engineers, Archaeologists, Architects, Chemical Engineers, Geologists) current their event and their clinical paintings in growth in regards to the homes of a sequence of stones which were used for the erection of a few of crucial stone monuments of the foreign cultural historical past and are used at the present time for substitution of lacking components or of completion of broken ones. hence it's visible that the amount should be a really useful gizmo within the palms of a huge number of scientists operating within the box of the construction fabrics of historical monuments: It bargains with the topic globally and it comprises unpublished study effects about the fabrics which are used or can be used for the conservation of the overseas cultural heritage.
