Abstract

Motomachi Sekibutsu is a Buddha statue that was carved into a cliff in Oita City, Japan, during the 11th or 12th century. It was designated as a national historic site in 1934. The stone statue is constantly affected by the penetration of heat and moisture into the cliff, and concerns have been raised about its deterioration. Various preservation measures have been taken to prevent this; however, the main cause of deterioration, salt damage, has not been eliminated. Here we develop a numerical analysis model to calculate the heat and moisture behaviour in the statue and its shelter. Using this model, we reproduce the shelter’s hygrothermal environment before and after renovation and evaluate it with respect to damage caused by sodium sulphate. Our results show that the improvement in airtightness drastically contributes to decreasing the evaporation from the statue and suppressing the salt phase change; thus, the renovation of the shelter suppressed sodium sulphate salt damage to the statue.
