    Advance your knowledge of masonry and its systems with this must-have book for the industry. You’ll get 11 peer-reviewed papers featuring the latest innovations in masonry materials, design, specification, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation.

    Expert authors detail how ASTM standards apply to these areas, and how they coordinate with building codes, project specifications, and international standards. Divided into three sections, Measurements and Testing, Materials and Performance, and Design and Code, highlights include research and studies on:

    – moisture content of masonry for use in analytical hygrothermal models
    – calculating normal stress in brick masonry for in-situ shear tests
    – new masonry units made from cellulose and bentonite clay that can be modified using woodworking tools
    –a new modified hotbox device for measuring thermal performance of non-homogeneous masonry materials
     –code requirements for stone masonry veneers and stone veneer cavity walls
     –cold-formed steel stud back masonry veneer wall systems
     –aesthetic issues of buildings constructed in Chicago, Illinois, USA from 1932 through 2017
