Task 6.3: Björn Schouenborg, SP
||Task 6.1: Test method for bowing properties
Task 6.2: Test method for irreversible thermal and hydric properties
Task 6.3: Inter-comparison test
||To develop a test method for assessment of the potential
risk of bowing.
To develop a test method for assessment of the potential risk of
irreversible thermal and hydric expansion. (Existing methods are not
applicable for marble or limestone).
||The partners experience from routine testing of natural
stones and the WP leader's experience from organising inter-comparison
tests on an international level. The participation of several partners
in European standardisation of natural stones CEN/TC 246. Results from
previous investigations performed by the partners (SP, RAMBØLL,
SINTEF and TUW); i.e. Nordtest and Craft-projects.
