Chemical and microstructural characterization of the render, sampled from the Garden wall of the US Embassy in Prague 1
Slížková, Zuzana ; Frankeová, Dita ; Viani, Alberto ; Hauková, Petra ; Koudelková, Veronika ; Svoboda, Milan
The aim of the work was to analyze the mortar taken from the Garden wall (US Embassy, Prague 1). Analyzes were performed for the binder and filler characterization and the sample was also dissolved in HCl to determine the mixing ratio.
Chemical and microstructural characterization of the render, sampled from Gloriette, the US Embassy in Prague 1
Slížková, Zuzana ; Frankeová, Dita ; Viani, Alberto ; Hauková, Petra ; Koudelková, Veronika ; Svoboda, Milan
The aim of the work was to analyze the mortar taken from the Gloriette (US Embassy, Prague 1). Analyzes were performed for the binder and filler characterization and the sample was also dissolved in HCl to determine the mixing ratio.
Chemical and microscopic analysis of external plaster, Petschek villa, V sadech 2, Prague 6
Slížková, Zuzana ; Viani, Alberto ; Koudelková, Veronika ; Frankeová, Dita ; Hauková, Petra
The aim of this work was to analyze mortar from Petschek villa, XRD and SEM-EDX analyzes have been proposed, which results in the characterization of aggregate and mortar binders. The analyses proved gypsum plaster with surface paint.
Chemical and mineralogical analyses of plaster samples from State Castle Krakovec
Slížková, Zuzana ; Frankeová, Dita ; Hauková, Petra ; Viani, Alberto
With using microscopic analysis, thermal analysis, and XRD, it was determined that both analyzed mortar samples are lime mortars with admixtures of clay minerals. The contained sand in the mortar is quartz, there are also grains of feldspar and mica, the structure of the two mortars is different.
The formation of calcium carbonate polymorphs from concentrated salt solutions
Ševčík, Radek ; Mácová, Petra ; Viani, Alberto
This contribution is demonstrated the preliminary results of the study of the gel phase forming during the synthesis of calcium carbonate's polymorphs. Several samples were collected during the reaction and they were subsequently investigated with instrumental techniques e.g. scanning electron microscopy.
Qualitative and quantitative analysis of clay soils
Šašek, Petr ; Viani, Alberto ; Mácová, Petra
Smectite-to-illite conversion is an important mineralogical reaction that occurs during the diagenesis ofargillaceous sediment. Illite–smectite clay minerals are ubiquitous in sedimentary basins and they have been linked to the maturation, migration and trapping of hydrocarbons, rock cementation, evolution of porewater chemistry during diagenesis and the development of pore pressure. But, despite the importance of these clays, their structures are controversial. By combining layers of octahedra and tetrahedra several types of layered structures may be produced, which can form various types of clay minerals in nature. Clay minerals are divided into three main groups: kaolinite, smectite and illite. The aim of the study was to qualitatively and quantitatively analyse the clay minerals in soil samples and identification of unknown mineral found by exploration works. For this purpose XRD, Raman spectroscopy and SEM were employed.
Chemical and mineralogical analyses of stone sampled from Troja Castle, baroque staircase, Prague 7
Slížková, Zuzana ; Mácová, Petra ; Viani, Alberto ; Šašek, Petr ; Wolf, Benjamin
Chemical and mineralogical analyses of stone sampled from Troja Castle, baroque staircase, Prague 7.
Determination of thermal response of Carrara and Sneznikovsky marble used as building material
Petráňová, Veronika ; Valach, Jaroslav ; Viani, Alberto ; Pérez-Estébanez, Marta
Physical weathering of marble, widely used as a cladding material on buildings, is one of the most common damaging mechanism caused by anisotropic thermal expansion of calcite grains. The extent of marble deterioration depends mainly on stone fabric and texture. Dry cuboids of Carrara marble and marble from Dolni Morava quarry were subjected to microscopic analysis and thermal cycling, to determine the thermal expansion related to stone fabric and predominant lattice orientation of grains (i.e. texture).
Assessment of masonry structures in the room No. 303 on the first floor of Upper Castle of Kunštát State Castle
Drdácký, Miloš ; Frankeová, Dita ; Kloiber, Michal ; Koudelková, Veronika ; Lesák, Jaroslav ; Válek, Jan ; Viani, Alberto
Non-destructive evaluation techniques have been adopted to assess the present situation of the walls with recently discovered frescoes in the rebuilt part of the castle. IR thermography, videoscope and ground penetrating radar were used for the classification of masonry, especially for the detection of hidden structural elements. Samples of historic mortars were analysed by thermal analysis and scanning electron microscopy. The analyses showed that binder of mortars consists of dolomitic lime.
Analysis of soils
Šašek, Petr ; Viani, Alberto ; Ševčík, Radek ; Mácová, Petra ; Machová, Dita
High concentrations of solid particles in the air may cause health problems. Sources of such particles can be natural processes, as well as human activity (e.g. coal mining, etc). Another source of contamination is the so-called secondary dustiness, which arises from vortex of already settled solids and dispersion into the atmosphere. Secondary dustiness formation is mainly affected by the surface moisture. The increase of humidity leads to agglomeration of the particles, resulting to their falling on ground, thus inhibiting their distribution in the atmosphere. The aim of the study was to analyse the soil dust particles collected on the filters of impactor, with respect to particle size and composition.
