Editor(s): Kurt R. Hoigard

STP 1394 covers the latest concepts in new stone cladding and the rehabilitation of existing stone cladding installations. 13 peer-reviewed papers are grouped into four sections:

Stone Cladding Preconstruction Evaluation--examines doctoral thesis research work performed at the University of Illinois, regarding the use of impulse-generated stress waves as a nondestructive means of determining stone properties.

Stone Weathering And Durability--details methods of durability assessment currently used in the U.S. and European Community; discusses the relationships between crystalline structure, thermal hysteresis, and bowing of Carrara marble panels; and offers a case history assessing the root causes of weathering-induced damage to an 80 year old granite facade and explores a variety of restorative treatment methods.

Design Of Stone Cladding Systems--addresses granite design issues involving wind and gravity support systems.

Investigation And Restoration Of Existing Stone Cladding Systems--offer a variety of case studies, observations, and specific recommendations regarding investigative means and repair methods used to address distressed stone facades.
