AbstractThe method of testing bricks for durability used in CSA and ASTM standards is believed to subject bricks to conditions of freezing that do not occur in normal wall service. When certain bricks were tested in the standard way and also by a different method of freezing, devised to more nearly approach actual wall conditions, significant differences were noted in the durability of the bricks as well as in their manner of failure.
