    Abstract

    STONE is a prominent and desirable building cladding. It was first used in massive blocks stacked within loadbearing masonry walls. It is now commonly a thin-skin caulked cladding, which is only facing. As part of the exterior wall, it does not support the building. Stone's structural role is now flexural as facing instead of compressive as blocks, contrary to its natural strength and origin.
