AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF LIME BASED PLASTERS MOISTURE AND TEMPERATURE INDUCED DEFORMATION.
The problem of the reconstruction of the historical building coat is in material comparability. The basic of the convenient material choice for reconstructions is to recognize some physical properties of used materials. The crucial properties are moisture and temperature induced expansion. The objective of this paper is to experimentally determine moisture and temperature induced deformations of two lime based plasters. The measurements are performed for moisture content from the dry state to the saturation water content and temperature range of 5 – 60°C. Temperature and moisture induced length differences were measured using LVDT MACRO SENSOR SBP 375040.
