Methodologies for evaluating exposure and response of stone masonry to wind-driven rain

Abstract:

Wind-driven rain (WDR) is a main moisture source and weathering factor for monumental and vernacular stone masonry in the UK. To conserve and manage these structures, especially as weather events are predicted to become more intense during the 21st century, methodologies are needed that: (a) characterise environmental WDR exposure, and (b) non-destructively monitor the response of moisture regimes within stone masonry.

This thesis aims to address exposure and response between WDR a...
