Influences of chemical degradation on mechanical behaviour

Jul 01, 2011 Highlight Two plastic deformation mechanisms of limestone are identified. The chemical degradation affects elastic and plastic properties of the limestone. There is also the progressive destruction of inter-granular cementation. The chemical degradation largely enhances the time dependent deformation. Wormholes are generated leading to localized drastic changes of permeability.

The well-known archaeological site of Anahita Temple at Kangavar is one of the most important Iranian stone monuments. It has been dated by various authors in an interval extended from Achaemenid to Sasanian Persian Empires (sixth century BCE to seventh century AD). Significant weathering has been occurred in various stone blocks used in the construction of this monument.

The restoration of limestone has traditionally been accompanied by a search for the appropriate products. Standard HF (hydrofluoric) restoration technology can have unpleasant results. The fluoride ion has an affinity for calcium. The ion initiates cycles of degradation that are virtually impossible to halt, as the fluoride ion cannot be removed.

The Problem of Leaching Pesticide Environmental Stewardship

Limestone close to the surface may allow quick passage of recharge water, reducing the chance for adsorption or degradation of chemicals to occur. Limestone also dissolves in water, creating underground passages and caves which let water move out of the area rapidly, possibly carrying chemicals long distances.

Thermal Decomposition of Calcium Carbonate (solutions

Limestone is a common rock that is a very useful material. For example, it is used for building and road making, and also as a starting material for making many other products. This activity illustrates some of the chemistry of limestone (calcium carbonate) and other materials made from it.

Limestone Wikipedia

Limestone is a common type of carbonate sedimentary rock.It is composed mostly of the minerals calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate (CaCO 3).Limestone forms when these minerals precipitate out of water containing dissolved calcium. This can take place through both biological and nonbiological processes, though biological processes have likely been more

(PDF) Effects of Limestone Mining on Deforestation and

Throughout the world, limestone mining activities have marked negative environmental impacts in view of the fact that limestone mining involves extraction of limestone from the earth’s crust by removing vegetation cover, top soil, and rocks that lie above the required limestone hence exacerbate deforestation and land degradation (William, 2001).

Effects of Limestone Mining on Deforestation and Land

Influence of Air Pollution and Humidity on Limestone

May 08, 2009 Climatic changes and the increased air pollution intensify the atmospheric degradation of stone, affecting the aspect and integrity of valuable historical buildings constructed using limestone and located in tropical coastal sites. This paper analyzes limestone degradation process due to air pollution and humidity in tropical humid conditions in historical buildings located in the cities of

Role of NO2 and SO2 in degradation of limestone: British

To shed new light on the process of gas–stone interaction, specimens of the oolitic limestone have been exposed to gaseous SO 2 and NO x under controlled conditions. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and weight gain analysis have been used conjointly to determine the chemical state of the reaction products, and to elucidate the mechanism of
