AbstractNine commercially marketed Canadian clay bricks of diverse frost-durability records were studied with the objective of improving frost-resistance evaluation criteria and quality- control methods. The effects of raw materials, forming methods, and heat gradient in the kiln were investigated, and the general sampling and testing procedures that were followed are described in this paper.
