Abstract

This study presents a new experimental chamber, which builds upon previous methods of testing salt weathering. This method is based on capillary rising in samples, as this corresponds to the actual imbibition process in building stone. This set-up allows control in setting both a specific thermal regime and cycling temperatures. Some of the significant additions of this experimental set-up are: continuous flow of the saline solution, as the samples will be fed with a constant concentration throughout the experiments; and continuous monitoring of environmental temperature, relative humidity and sample weights. Recorded results in this research belong to limestone samples from Mokattam, Cairo. Results are also considered as a proof to the practical advantages of the experimental chamber in salt-weathering studies and its environmental controls.
