Improving Access to the Frost Dilatometry Methodology for Assessing Brick Masonry Freeze Thaw Degradation Risk

Improving Access to the Frost Dilatometry Methodology for Assessing Brick Masonry Freeze Thaw Degradation Risk

By Randy Van Straaten. Abstract: The application of frost dilatometry has a significant advantage relative to available ASTM methods in providing application-specific risk assessments. The main application considered in this paper is the interior thermal retrofit of heavy brick masonry buildings. For such projects, the cost of testing and analysis present an obstacle to widespread […]
