Non-destructive and non-invasive techniques applying to cultural heritage made of stones, soils and earthen materials have been significantly developed over past years, and thus, the interest in such techniques has greatly increased. Here, we focus the session on new devices, new protocols and new data treatments that allow better understanding of weathering mechanisms, decay states and response to treatments.
A few topics would be listed as follows: 1) The development of new techniques and devices in cultural heritage and new protocols using non-destructive techniques; 2) The application of these techniques and protocols on indoor and outdoor case studies and laboratory studies; 3) The assessment of weathering mechanisms, weathering kinetics, decay state, and response to treatments; and 4) The modeling and simulation of decay processes.
