Abstract

Bateig stone is an allochemical calcareous rock (mainly biosparite - biomicrite) worked in Novelda, named Novelda stone too (Alicante province, Spain) that belongs to a transgressive unit of Middle - Late Miocene age. This stone is a highly workable material that often was used in monumental Spanish architecture. Using criterium publising by the M.I.T., Bateig stone may be classified as a Medium to Low Limestone. Data from Mercury Porosimeter has been used to stimate a DDS (Durability Dimensional Stimation). The DDS equation is supported on the calculus of the pressure of salt crystallization in porous mediums. The DDS values obtained, for different varieties of Bateig stone let us establish that the microporosity, size pores less than 0,1 μm, is the main factor responsible for durability of materials.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

La "Pierre Bateig" est une roche carbonatee a allochemes (biosparite-biomicrite) extraite en Novelda, elle est appellee aussi "Pierre de Novelda" (Province de Alicante, Espagne); elle appartient a une unite transgresive du Miocene Moyen- Superieur. Cette roche est tres facile a travailler et souvent a ete utilisee dans la architecture monumentale espagnole. En utilisant le criterium publie par le M.I.T. la "Pierre Bateig" peut etre classifiee comme "Moyen a Low Limestone". Les donnees du Porosimetre de Mercure ont ete utilisees a la fin d'etablir une DDS (Durability Dimensional Stimation). L'equation de la DDS est basee dans le calcule de la pression de cristallisation des sels dans un moyen poreux. Les valeurs obtenues pour les differentes varietes de la Pierre Bateig permettent d'etablir que la microporosite, pores plus petits de 0, 1 μm, est le principal facteur responsable de la durabilite des materiaux.
