Thermal degradation in Carrara marbles as the cause of deformation of cladding slabs
Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale
Marble slabs, typically used as façade panels to externally cover buildings, might permanently deform after a certain time of environmental exposure. This phenomenon, called bowing, is generally accompanied by a reduction of strength which increases with increasing degree of bowing. In the present paper, a theoretical model to calculate the progressive bowing of marble slabs submitted to temperature cycles is briefly recalled and applied to a specific Carrara marble sample. The marble isdoi:10.3221/igf-esis.30.19 fatcat:ugwnkybyobgpfa6eoabyb3ukny
