Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Nuclear Magnetic Resonance was employed to obtain information on the pore filling during the absorption process. A porous carbonate stone, largely employed for buildings and mainly outdoor decorations was studied during water absorption by capillary rise, and filled pores radii were evaluated by comparison between experimental and theoretical parametric magnetization decay curves. Non mono-exponential T2 allowed spin populations to be split among the associated different relaxation times.
