    Abstract

    This paper discusses and presents a preconstruction testing program for a brick veneer cavity wall. It presents the testing program and the application of ASTM and industry standards to the evaluation testing of the brick masonry materials. It provides findings on brick and mortar characteristics, steps taken to improve the performance of the selected brick wall materials, and engineering procedures for determining material compatibility and performance.
