Masonry Flue Linings - Designing for Durability

This paper considers the causes of masonry flue lining failures, mainly from tensile cracking of the outer face and/or compressive collapse of the inner face. Suggestions are offered as to both the most likely primary causes of failure in a range of commonly used lining materials, and ways of avoiding (or at least reducing the risk of) future failures, i.e. designing for durability. For freestanding linings operating within their tensile strength (very few), a series of design charts has been prepared to enable the maximum freestanding height of lift to be determined to avoid compressive collapse and failure.
