AbstractSmall panels of brick masonry have been used to study the resistance to moisture penetration and the strength of bond of brickwork in relation to several factors. Results of tests are presented to show the influence of properties of bricks and mortars on leakage and bond strength. Information is presented on the effects of several other factors that are governed by the technique used by the bricklayer in constructing masonry. These factors include the consistency of the mortar when used, the time interval between spreading a mortar bed and laying a brick in it, and the extent to which a brick is tapped into the mortar. The effects of tooling of mortar joints and varying the thickness of mortar joints are also considered.
