1) Loss of Mass a)Crumbling

Crumbling is the loss of internal coherence and loss of material. As you see from the pictures taken from surface,some crumbling effects are severly than rest of them.This anomaly depends upon also where it happens.According to the pictures,the crumbling formed on the upper part of facade is subjected to medium effect,but instead the crumbling formed on the first floor subjected to severely effect.The most affected part could have been subjected to more water effects(rain..), or by the action of human effects..

1) Loss of Mass a)Scaling

Scaling is local flaking or peeling away of the near-surface portion of hardened concerete or mortar.The reason to make scaling occur could be freeze-thaw attack or salt attack.From the pictures shown on the previous page one part is especially undergone much suffering.Maybe the problem could be enlightened analyzing that wall in depth.

The main problem to occur deposit is dust in the atmosphere bonded on the facade.By the effect of the rainwater ,some areas are seen in significant differences in colour between clean and dirty areas due to run off the water bringing the dust.Also the animal excrements could be the reason consisting of deposit on this surface.
