Altan, M. Orhan

Cl PA 2003 XIX' 1 ' International Symposium, 30 September - 04 October, 2003, Antalya, Turkey
This study has tried to summarize a basic schema of the
experimental methods that may be followed in order within the
repairing process of the most important materials that have been
used in the construction of the historical buildings: mortar and
plaster. The lack of an existing standard with regard to repair
mortar to be used in historical buildings requires the design of
such a flow diagram as presented in this study. The suggested
experimental method can be applied for every type of mortar or
building. The repair mortars sold currently at the markets may
be prepared and upgraded in accordance with the experiment
results; in this way, use of ready-made repair mortar sold at the
markets in plastic bags may facilitate the restoration process. At
the same time, the flow diagram presented in this study sets up
the study practice that may constitute a standard for obtaining a
data archive that includes information about the diversity of the
mortar in accordance with the time period in which they were
