Activities per year
One hundred and forty-eight original contributions on historic mortars and related subjects were presented at the 2nd Historic mortars conference, which took place in Prague September 22–24, 2010. The papers presented the latest research topics and advancements in this field. The editors vigorously reviewed the papers and selected 34 original contributions to be published in this special post conference publication. These papers constitute the essence of the current State-of-the-Art of research on historic mortars. The summary of these papers is put into a wider context of the past research, current practice and pre-normative activities of RILEM Technical Committees on characterisation of historic mortars (TC 167COM and TC 203RHM).
