Understanding Diagnostic and Quality Assurance Testing for Masonry Walls
Provider: Mason Contractors Association of America
Discipline: Codes & Standards
There are a variety of standardized tests used to assess masonry during and post construction as well as industry accepted adaptations of testing methods for diagnostic purposes. Understanding the procedures and intent of these tests can often enable to masons to self-perform QA tests in advance of third party testing to help address any issues prior to the implementation of third party testing.
For repair contractors, understanding diagnostic test methods can help with the understanding and evaluation of repair recommendations. For contractors performing mostly new construction work, understanding diagnostic tests can often help develop an understanding of potential failure mechanisms that can be proactively addressed in new construction.
