Abstract

The effect of different climatic conditions on the degradation of historical masonry in the Czech Republic is studied. Several different sandstone and several different locations in the Czech Republic are selected for this analysis. The effect of environmental conditions is evaluated using various damage functions. Based on the damage function values, the most severe and most favorable locations are identified, together with the most resistant sandstone in terms of hygrothermal loads.
