These 12 papers presented during the June 2010 symposium report research results on masonry performance testing, moisture problems, efflorescence, failure analysis, and repair techniques. 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.
