This volume contains the proceedings of the MSSCE 2016 conference segment
on Historical Masonry. This conference segment is one of the many events within the wider area of Civil Engineering taking place in the framework of RILEM Week 2016 and MSSCE 2016. The idea behind its organization was to revitalize interest in Historical Masonry within the RILEM community.
The present conference segment deals with theory, modelling and results from experimental investigations within the wider field of Historical Masonry. The topics covered include masonry materials (characterization and reproduction), measurement techniques, mechanisms of masonry decay and methods of assessing and protecting masonry. Papers featuring in the proceedings present state-of-the-art knowledge that extends to some interesting case studies, which both practitioners and people working in the academia should find appealing. All contributions have been peer-reviewed.
The event “Materials, Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering MSSCE 2016” is scientifically sponsored by RILEM. The event is hosted by the Department of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark and is financially sponsored by a number of independent foundations and organizations. The conference segment on Historical Masonry, in particular, is sponsored by Director Ib Henriksens Foundation and the Danish Lime & Brickworks association.
Working together to create a platform for collaboration on Historical Masonry has been a joy! We hope that you will find the proceedings interesting and worth reading. May this conference segment be the starting point for increased activity within RILEM in the field of Historical Masonry!
