    2. 2. masonry   Masonry is generally a highly durable form of construction. However, the materials used, the quality of the mortar and workmanship, and the pattern in which the units are assembled can significantly affect the durability of the over all masonry construction. Masonry units, such as brick, tile, stone, glass brick or concrete block generally conform[where?] to the requirements specified in the 2003 International Building Code (IBC) Section 2103.

    7. 7. masonry Masonry is the building of structures from individual units laid in and bound together by mortar; the term masonry can also refer to the units themselves. The common materials of masonry construction are Brick Stone Marble Granite Limestone Cast Stone Concrete Block Glass block Stucco, and Tile.
    8. 8. Applications    Masonry is commonly used for the walls of buildings, retaining walls and monuments. Brick and concrete block are the most common types of masonry in use in industrialized nations and may be either weight-bearing or a veneer. Concrete blocks, especially those with hollow cores, offer various possibilities in masonry construction. They generally provide great compressive strength, and are best suited to structures with light transverse loading when the cores remain unfilled. Filling some or all of the cores with concrete or concrete with steel reinforcement (typically rebar) offers much greater tensile and lateral strength to structures
    9. 9. Solid Walls  Masonry units laid close together with all joints filled solidly with mortar. Solid walls are structurally bonded by metal ties, masonry headers or by joint reinforcement. Where solid masonry walls are used, insulation and mechanical equipment are often installed within a furred space on the interior side of the wall. Below grade, insulation is often placed on the exterior side of the wall.
    10. 10. Veneered Walls  Masonry is used as a facing material. In this case, the masonry does not act structurally. It serves to perform as a weather barrier and as a finish material. Insulation and mechanical equipment is normally located between studs.
    11. 11. Reinforced Masonry Walls  Similar to a reinforced concrete wall, a reinforced masonry wall incorporates steel to provide resistance to tension, shear, and compression forces. Reinforcing bars are placed vertically in walls and tied to horizontal bars. Insulation and mechanical equipment is placed similar to that in a solid wall
    12. 12. Cavity Walls  A cavity wall is composed of two wythes of either solid or hollow masonry separated by a continuous air space, and bonded together with metal ties or joint reinforcement. The cavity offers important advantages in areas of severe exposure:
    13. 13. Cavity Walls      The continuous air space provides insulation value and a place where additional insulation may be installed. The continuous air space acts as a barrier to moisture penetration. In cavity walls, insulation and mechanical equipment are often installed within the cavity, or within a furred space on the interior of the wall.
    14. 14. MORTAR Mortar is a pasty material formed by the addition of water to a mixture composed of an aggregate (sand) and a binding material (cement or lime) which may be handled with a trowel. The mortar units the individual bricks together. Generally, following types of mortar are in use, o Mud mortar o Cement mortar o Lime mortar o Cement lime mortar Mud mortar is used for the temporary construction. Cement mortar is used for permanent structures. In order to select a suitable type of mortar for a given construction, we must know the type of desired finish, the magnitude and nature of super-imposed load, the effect of weathering agencies and the importance of structure.
    15. 15. Brick Masonry  Brick masonry is construction in which uniform units (“bricks”), small enough to be placed with one hand, are laid in courses with mortar joints to form walls. Bricks are kiln baked from various clay and shale mixtures. The chemical and physical characteristics of the ingredients vary considerably. These characteristics and the kiln temperatures combine to produce brick in a variety of colors and harnesses.

    37. 37. Bond Bonding in brickwork in an arrangement of bricks, usually overlapping between courses in order to distribute load and provide stability. Bonding can also be used for decorative purposes. In general brickwork should not be less than quarter bonded. Brick bond
    38. 38. Header A brick which is laid in a way that only the short end is visible in the wall Stretcher A brick which is laid in a way that allows only the longer side of the brick to be exposed.
    39. 39. Stretcher Bond Easiest bond to lay & minimizes the amount of cutting required Originally used for single brick walls, now called 1/2 brick walls it became the obvious choice for cavity walls as less cutting was required.
    40. 40. English Bond Alternative courses of headers and stretchers; one header placed centrally above each stretcher. This is a very strong bond when the wall is 1 brick thick(or thicker). One of the strongest brickwork bond patterns.
    41. 41. Flemish Bond Alternate bricks are placed as header and stretcher in every course. Each header is placed centrally between the stretcher immediately above and bellow. This is not as strong as the English bond at 1 brick thick. Can be successfully applied in cavity wall.
    42. 42. Raking Bond Herringbone and diagonal bonds can be effective within an exposed framed construction, or contained within restraining brick courses.
    43. 43. English Garden Wall Bond An alternative version of English bond with header courses being inserted at every fourth or sixth course. This is a correspondingly weaker bond. Suitable for free standing wall.
    44. 44. Common/ American Bond A brickwork pattern in which all rows are stretchers, except an eighth row of headers
    45. 45. Flemish Garden Wall Bond In this variant of Flemish bond, one header is placed at every third stretcher
    46. 46. Running Bond Consist of all stretchers no header used in this bond so metal ties are used Cavity wall construction & veneered walls of brick.
    47. 47. Herringbone Bond It is a purely decorative bond. It is used in floor and wall panels.
    48. 48. Header Bond A masonry bond consisting of header courses exclusively. Header bond was sometimes used to help make a building look bigger. Civic buildings and the odd town-house can be found in Header bond. It's also used where there is a lot of ornamental detail, presumably to avoid a lot of unsightly and costly cutting.
    49. 49. Racking Bond  Herringbone and diagonal bonds can be effective within an exposed framed construction, or contained within restraining brick courses.
    50. 50. ID 218 Interior System, Materials and Codes Brick Masonry: 8.3 Masonry Dimensioning  1. The small retail building whose plan is drawn below is to be built of modular bricks.  Before construction can begin, you must work out exact dimensions to guide masons.  Count squares to determine each dimension approximately, then fill in the exact dimensions of the brickwork, accurate to the nearest 1/8" or 1 mm, in such a way that only full bricks and half bricks need be used in the stretcher courses. Check your work by adding each chain of short dimensions and comparing the sum to the corresponding overall dimension. Brick masonry dimensioning is illustrated in Figure 8.22 of the text, and further discussed on pages 65 – 66 of the Exercises workbook.

    60. 60. Defects in Brick Masonry 1. Sulphate attack: This is a common defect, at locations where the brick work is exposed. The sulphate salts present in brick react with aluminum salts of cement. Due to the reaction, increase in the volume of mortar takes lace, which results in cracking, chipping and spelling of bricks. This may also cause failure of brickwork.
    61. 61. Defects in Brick Masonry 2. Crystallization of salts from bricks: If the bricks are manufactured from earth containing excessive soluble salts. These salts dissolved in water (due to rain or due to the entry of moisture) and appear in the form of fine whitish crystals on the exposed brick surface. This is also known as efflorescence. The masonry surface will give an ugly appearance.
    62. 62. Defects in Brick Masonry 3. Corrosion of embedded fixtures: Iron, steel fixtures (pipes, holdfasts etc.) and reinforcement etc., embedded in brick masonry gets corroded in presence of moisture. The corrosion results in increased volume, which caused cracks in brick masonry. 4. Dry shrinkage: When moisture penetrates the brick work it swells. On evaporation of moisture the brick shrinks resulting in development of cracks in the masonry joints frequent swelling and shrinkage may cause failure of masonry.
    63. 63. Defects in Brick Masonry 5. Quality of brick: Use of interior quality bricks will also caused expansion and cracking in brickwork. 6. Weather/ Climate action: In snow bound areas if water is present in the brickwork cause freezing of water. The increase in volume may cause cracking in brickwork.
    64. 64. Maintenance of Brick Masonry 1. Repainting Brickwork: The painted walls should be repainted to prevent spelling of bricks. 2. Repointing old brickwork: Repointing is carried out to improve the appearance of old brickwork and to make it water tight. 3. Cleaning brickwork: Brick work can be cleaned with steam or steam and hot water jets. This type of treatment is useful for fine textured and hard burnt bricks.
    65. 65. Maintenance of Brick Masonry 4. Removal of Efflorescence: Efflorescence - soluble salts when dried get deposited on the surface of the bricks as a white layer. Efflorescence can be removed by scrubbing the wall with water and a stiff brush. If this is not successful, a 10% solution of muriatic acid may be used. After this treatment the walls rinsed with pure water immediately.
    66. 66. Hollow Concrete Masonry Concrete Hollow Blocks is an excellent replacement of clay bricks. The block masonry is load bearing and there are several advantages of using blocks. The blocks have been in existence all over the world for more than 100 years. Concrete hollow blocks have holes, which are horizontally aligned. This allows moisture to seep through. Blocks are made of concrete, which absorbs very little water. At the same time, they have vertically aligned holes, which do not allow moisture to seep through.
    67. 67. Hollow Concrete Masonry Concrete blocks can be used like any other masonry unit to build foundations, walls, arches and corbels, etc. A typical concrete block is equivalent to 4.5 bricks, thus construction is faster than with other masonry units. The mortar is also less which results in cost saving. Concrete blocks have been extensively used in combination with conventional roofing systems like RCC, RBC, GI sheets, ACC sheets etc. They are also compatible with other materials like fired bricks, dressed stone and compressed earth blocks for composite wall construction.
    68. 68. The advantages of using blocks are as follows:  Highly Durable  Low Maintenance, Color and brilliance of masonry withstands outdoor elements.  Load Bearing, strength can be specified as per the requirement.  Fire Resistant  Provide thermal and sound insulation  Economical
    69. 69. The advantages of using blocks are as follows: 7. Environment Friendly, flash used as one of the raw materials. 8. Low insurance rates 9. Popular for foundation walls. 10. Do not require formwork 11. Blocks are fairly inexpensive 12. Work can be stopped and started as needed
