Topics include an evaluation of efflorescence test methods for brick, stucco as a barrier to water penetration during hurricanes, the flexural tensile strength of clay masonry, a comparison of freeze and thaw test procedures on molded brick, and the thermal resistance of brick masonry systems. B&w photographs are provided, but no index. The papers were previously published in the May 2010 issue of the Journal of ASTM International, vol. 7, no. 5.
