Abstract: A wide-scale program on the suitability of mortar formulation for heritage buildings in the Walloon Region has been undertaken to improve restoration habits in order to guarantee the permanence of patrimonial monuments.
A global methodology has been established for the collection, registration, and macroscopic description of mortar specimens sampled in the field and the experimental physico-mechanical characterizations performed in laboratory.
