Development of suitable restoration mortars and the definition of how to employ adapted historical techniques for nowadays restoration

A repair material which is most probably suitable was proposed for each of the most important conservative needs at Qasr al Bint (adhesion/repair mortar, sacrificial plaster, grouting mortar). Each of the formulas was tested in the laboratory, in the field and by on-site application. In Bosra the traditional hemp fibre mortar was improved with regard to workability. Moreover a guideline was developed of how to adjust the particle size distribution of the aggregate in order to minimize the formation of plaster cracks. The results are useful for a conservation of the mortars, plasters and the stucco at Qasr al Bint and for any conservation of historical plasters by materials similar to the historical ones in Bosra and Syria. The end-users of the results comprise concerned public institutions, architects and engineers.
