AbstractField observations indicate that the performance of several bricks used in the area is inconsistent with durability predicted by ASTM and CSA Specification requirements. The results of long-range laboratory and outdoor freeze-thaw cycling tests are compared with absorption values, saturation coefficients, and compressive strength values. Six clay bricks and one concrete brick are included in the study. The study indicates that there are some exceptions to durability predicted by requirements in the specifications.
