    Ten papers provide better understanding of the principles and mechanics involved in designing and building masonry structures.

    Three main areas of focus are:

    Materials -- a review of findings on new additives and materials that are being effectively used to beneficially modify traditional mortars.

    Testing -- including unbounded capping systems for concrete masonry units, out-of-plane shear strength valves, ruggedness testing, in-situ evaluation of pre-compressed brick veneer, and more.

    Applications -- examines actual projects in renovation of masonry loft buildings and detecting the degree of grout fill in cement masonry units.
