  1. Masonry
    • Fired clay (brick, terra cotta, structural clay tile)
    • Cement based (concrete masonry unit (CMU), precast, autoclaved)
    • Stone (granite, limestone, sandstone)
    • Adobe (unfired clay) (good thermal mass)
    • Rammed Earth
  2. Brick Types
    • FBX - face brick with minimum variations
    • FBS - face brick with wider range of variations
    • FBA - non-uniform face brick
  3. Brick Grades
    • SW - suitable for exposure to severe weathering
    • MW - suitable for exposure to moderate weathering
    • NW - suitable for exposure to negligible weathering
  4. Concrete Masonry Units (CMU)
    • Weights
    • Normal weight - P 125 pcf
    • Medium weight - 105 and 125 pcf
    • Light weight - made from concrete weighing 0 105 pcf
  5. CMU Grades
    • N - load bearing, suitable for both above and below grade use
    • S - load bearing, for above grade use
  6. CMU Types
    • Type 1 - moisture content of concrete limited during manufacturing to minimize shrinkage
    • Type 2 - no limit on moisture content of concrete during manufacturing
  7. Stone Geological Types
    • Igneous - molten magma, granite, HEAVIEST
    • Metamorphic - marble, slate
    • Sedimentary - by deposition of seidment, MOST PORUS, limestone, sandstone
