AbstractEfflorescence on brickwork piers made of three types of brick and six mortars appeared to depend mainly on (a) the Portland cement content of the mortar, (b) the type of brick, and (c) the season of the year. Efflorescence formed in the cold part of the year and was absent in the summer. Portland cement substituted for lime in mortars contributed to efflorescence; however, the amount of efflorescence depended also on the type of brick (probably on the pore structure).
