The ability to release and re-absorb moisture by capillary effect is one of the most useful properties of brick that helps to regulate the temperature and humidity of atmosphere in a building. This distinctive property makes bricks an admirable building material, particularly suitable for buildings in the tropics. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

the building trade and architecture itself. The flexible joining and manipulating properties of light wood frame permitted greater complexities of planning. Advances in insulating technologies and heating also permitted the light wood frame to be sheathed with all sorts of different materials: horizontal wood siding, stucco, brick (see next entry). Brick. Brick is the oldest manufactured building material. The earliest brick, made from mud (sometimes with added straw), was invented alm years ago. Clay brick started to appear about 5, years ago, when builders borrowed pottery manufacturing techniques to improve its strength and durability.

In conclusion, higher heating rates are able to produce adequate physical and mechanical properties especially for CB Brick. Introduction Brick is one of the most accommodating masonry units due to its properties. The firing process could affect the physical and mechanical properties, colours and appearance of the manufactured brick.
