    The focus of this research is the theoretical application of laboratory statistics on creep and shrinkage in mortars to historic structures. By utilizing preexisting case studies, conclusions can be tentatively made as to how the tested mortar formulas should react in restoration projects. Mortar specifications, compiled from a variety of sources, are reviewed, and the data related to the laboratory program, enabling additional tables to be compiled and thus contributing to the long-term survival of old buildings.
