Determination of the Resistance of Midyat Building Stones to Salt Crystallization

Murat ÜNAL [1]


Salt weathering is a process of rock disintegration that takes place in a variety of environments and affects many kinds of rocks. Weathering due to salt crystallization is particularly effective on porous rocks. It also has important effects on rocks containing cracks and micro fractures. In this study, the resistance against salt crystallization of six different Midyat stones used as building stones, obtained from different locations were determined by using dry weight loss test. The tests were carried out in accordance with the natural environment by simulating the laboratory environment. The obtained data show that Midyat stone is affected by salt (Na2SO4) crystallization.
