AbstractLarge bricklayer-constructed wallettes have been used by many laboratories in studies of the problem of moisture penetration of brick masonry was developed which makes use of a small panel of bricks masonry. Although they reproduce actual conditions of construction of brick masonry, there are disadvantages to their use, such as costs, space requirements, and possible variation in workmanship or technique of bricklaying. A method for investigating factors in the problem of moisture penetration of brick masonry was developed which makes use of a small panel of bricks and mortar. The same panels used in moisture penetration tests can also be tested for strength of bond in direct tension between brick and mortar. The method of panel construction and the apparatus for tests of moisture penetration and bond strength are described.
