Title: Sonic Impact Method - a new technique for characterization of stone masonry walls
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: Granite stone masonry wall panels were studied using an acoustic Indirect Sonic Impact Method, ISIM.The test campaign included direct and indirect wave travel path together with sonic and ultrasonic wavefrequencies to determine the deformation modulus of both individual stones as well as of wall panels.Using the ISIM technique it was possible to obtain two types of wave velocities, P and R, which in turnenabled a cross-validation of the deformation modulus estimation. Results from mechanical compressiontests on the wall panels were also used and compared with the ISIM results.
