WP 5 Research

WP leader SINTEF
Task leader Task 5.1: Lisbeth Alnæs, SINTEF 
Task 5.2: Paola Blasi, IMM 
Task 5.3: Björn Schouenborg, SP 
Task 5.4: Tim Yates, BRE
Contents Task 5.1: Geological framework (In-situ stresses)
Task 5.2: Production conditions
Task 5.3: Rock and mineral properties
Task 5.4: Other properties (moist gradient etc.)
Objective Through field and laboratory investigations, combined with discussions with experts from industry and research, find the driving force behind and main factors influencing deterioration due to bowing and/or thermal expansion. Give input to stone companies regarding production and processing optimising. This WP will have major influence on decisions about work to be performed or eventually not performed within other WPs.
Background The partners experience from field and laboratory research and testing. This includes the WP leaders long term experience with rock stress measurements. Further on, the partners knowledge and experiences from projects and topics of relevance to the TEAM project will form a base for the work to be done.
