Özet

Travertine has long been a popular material for stone tile flooring in many stages of construction projects due to having unique surface properties characterized by honeycomb structure. Significant differences may be observed in terms of both visual appearances on the rock surface and physical and mechanical behavior in the using area depending on the cutting direction.
