The Performance of Walls Built of Wirecut Bricks Built With and Without Perforations

The literature on the comparative properties of solid and perforated bricks is reviewed. In view of the extensive use of perforated bricks it is surprising that there has been little detailed experimental work comparing ceramically similar bricks with and without perforations. The paper describes an extensive investigation to remedy this deficiency. Bricks covering a wide range of strength and water absorptions were used, together with two mortars. H.W.H. West, H.R.
