Masonry: Materials, Testing, and Applications

Editor(s): Joseph H. Brisch, Robert L. Nelson, Harry L. Francis

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.
