Durability has to be considered when
selecting natural stone as cladding, floor tiles for outdoor exposure. The
selection of natural stone for buildings is not only a design issue but is
definitely an engineering challenge related to the long-term material
durability. The long-term deformation and gradual strength loss of marble
panels has resulted in safety problems and increasing maintenance costs of
several building sites around Europe, e.g. Finlandia Hall - Helsinki, Danish
National bank – Copenhagen and La Grand Arch de la Defénce - Paris.
