The Engineering Group of the Geological Society convened a Working Party in 1993 and gave it the objective of presenting an authoritative, comprehensive and contemptorary account of the use in construction of rock in larger particulate form, subsequently generally referred to as 'stone'. The membership of the Working Party comprised experts in the origins, investigation, extraction, processing, use, specification, decay, cleaning and repair of stone.The resulting book is a unique, modern introduction to the subject and a source of further reference for architects, civil engineers, geologists, masons, quarry managers, structural engineers, surveyors and those responsible for restoration and maintenance of stone structures. Text boxes explain detail or specialized topics to the interested reader without interupting the main flow of the text. The book is highly illustrated with photographs taken by the authors and diagrams specially drawn for this publication. The book also includes a valuable glossary of terms and compliations of test methods and rock properties.
