Materials and Structures / Mat6riaux et Constructions, Vol. 37, August-September 2004, pp 491-496 RILEM TC 177-MDT: 'Masonry durability and on-site testing' The texts presented hereunder are drafts for general consideration. Comments should be sent to the Chairperson Prof. Luigia Binda, Dipartmento di Ingegneria Stmtturale, Politechnico di Milano, Piazza Leonardo da Vinci, 32, 1-20133 Milano, Italy; Fax (+39) 02 23994220, Email: luigia.binda@polimi.it, by 28 February 2005. 0. SUMMARY There is an enduring interest in the durability of masonry acting as a composite material especially because a very large proportion of the world's heritage buildings and civil engineering structures are predominantly constructed from this material. There is a continuing need for information on the best way to maintain a state of good preservation of masonry and on sympathetic techniques for repair and reinstatement of deteriorated masonry. In order to evaluate materials for use in both new and old structures, laboratory accelerated durability tests are necessary. Equally, a range of in-situ, non-destructive or semi-invasive tests are required to evaluate the status and condition of structures in the field and allow quality control of repair systems. monitoring the local state of strain. The method is not applicable to masonry in tension. Guidance
