Buktningsprovning av marmor för fasadbeklädnad (NT TR 481)

NT TR 481

  • Facade cladding of marble has, in several cases, suffered from problems with bowing panels that also loose strength. When not exchanged or repaired there is an obvious risk of panels falling down with time. The project objectives are to develop a laboratory test method for the detection of marble with a potential risk of bowing and to develop a field site investigation method.
