Correspondence The Diagonal Tensile Strength of Brickwork by B. Stafford Smith, C. Carter and J.R. Choudhury

A study of the detailed stress distribution in brickwork is essential for the proper understanding of the behaviour of this composite material. The authors are thus to be congratulated for their work in applying the finite element method of analysis to a brickwork disc under diametrical load, taking into account the non-homogeneous nature of the material.
