Title: Clay bricks and clay brick masonry

Ref Code: DG441
Authors: R C de Vekey

Abstract1: Digests 164 and 165, published in the 1970s, covered performance, specification and general design issues for clay bricks and mortars for a wide range of building elements. Markets, products, codes and standards have since changed and will change further. Sustainability and green issues are becoming key criteria in selecting building materials. Part 1 covers the technical issues, especially the specifications and testing of key performance criteria: strength, size, shape and durability in relation to current and future codes and standards. Part 2 covers appearance, environmental issues, and in-service performance of composite brickwork.
