Masonry Research Needs Report
A planning workshop for the National Program on High Performance Construction Materials and Systems, sponsored by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation (CERF), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), was held in 1993. The purpose of this workshop was to prepare a multi-industry program to accelerate the commercialization of High Performance Construction Materials and Systems. A Masonry Research Needs workshop was subsequently held to address the research concerns expressed during this meeting.
During this follow-up workshop, participants from the masonry industry identified a significant list of potential research projects, from which 13 critical needs areas were identified. These needs were defined by project, approach, and benefits to be derived through implementation of the research studies.
