GS EG16 - Stone: Building Stone, Rock Fill and Armourstone in Construction

Edited by M. R. Smith

 

The Engineering Group of the Geological Society convened a Working Party in 1993 and gave it the objective of presenting an authoritative, comprehensive and contemporary account of the use in construction of rock in larger particulate form, subsequently generally referred to as 'stone'. The membership of the Working Party comprised experts in the origins, investigation, extraction, processing, use, specification, decay, cleaning and repair of stone. The resulting book is a unique, modern introduction to the subject and a source of further reference for architects, civil engineers, geologists, masons, quarry managers, structural engineers, surveyors and those responsible for restoration and maintenance of stone structures. Text boxes explain detail or specialized topics to the interested reader without interrupting the main flow of the text. The book is highly illustrated with photographs taken by the authors and diagrams specially drawn for this publication. The book includes a valuable glossary of terms and compilations of test methods and rock properties.
