Date of Defense 2005-06-15 Availability unrestricted AbstractA masonry wall or panel is made by the stacking of individual units; typically brick, stone, concrete block or glass block. These units are bound together by mortar to form continuous vertical surfaces. Traditionally, mortar is a paste made from a mixture of sand and cement.
What other materials might serve as “mortar”?
For this thesis project a panelized system for binding brick with metal has been developed. Each panel consists of a steel frame, within which the bricks are stacked and bound together. Metal rods hold the bricks in place horizontally, while metal spacers maintain the correct vertical positioning. The panels are hung onto a steel grid and bound together to form surfaces.
