Existing Masonry Night School: Transitional Structures #5 – Testing and Analysis
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
During Existing Masonry Night School: Assessment, Maintenance, and Repair of Transitional Masonry Structures, instructors will discuss the most common issues in assessing, maintaining, and where needed, repairing masonry cladding systems constructed in North America between the 1880 and 1945.
This session, we will review potential laboratory and field testing that can be performed during the investigation as well as structural analyses that might be considered for the masonry and/or wall system to further determine the extent of the deterioration and develop potential repair options.
