Paper Title:
Characterization of Building Stones Involved in Historical Masonry
  Abstract

Basic physical properties, pore size distribution and hygric properties of several types of stones which are used in reconstructions of historical buildings on the territory of the Czech Republic, namely several types of sandstone and argillite, are investigated. Basic physical characteristics are measured using the water vacuum saturation method, pore distribution by mercury porosimetry. Values of water absorption coefficient and apparent moisture diffusivity are determined by methods utilizing the results of water sorptivity measurements. Water vapor transport properties are accessed by the cup method. The obtained data represents valuable information for the application of studied materials in reconstructions and renewal of historical buildings.
