Abstract

The effect of degradation processes on the durability of structures due to the transport of aggressive agents, such as chloride or sulphate ions, inside the porous matrix of the stone-masonry as well as of the concrete-masonry, is analyzed by means of a mathematical - nu- merical model. Both the variability of the environmental conditions (e.g. relative humidity, temperature) and the material characteristics are considered, within the framework of a damage model coupled with the diffusion model. To demonstrate the reliabi
