Despite the loss of masonry, this arch is intact and can be repaired with matching bricks.

Deteriorated stone may be replaced in kind, or with a matching substitute material; in some cases where not visually prominent, it may be covered with stucco, possibly scored to resemble blocks of stone. Cleaning Masonry. Inappropriate cleaning techniques can be a major source of damage to historic masonry buildings Physical dpc's can fail occasionally, particularly those formed by engineering bricks or overlapping slates, following breakdown of the mortar; bitumen felt dpc's can become brittle with age. The 'breakdown of mortar' is the most interesting point in this statement but the idea that an engineering brick can fail is simply wrong Brittle masonry infills cannot cope with the interstory seismic displacements of ductile structural systems. They account for most of the economic impact of earthquakes, direct (for repair or replacement) or indirect (due to disruption of occupancy, as tenants are reluctant to use the building before all damage is repaired) The authors also considered the volume proportion of the masonry bricks along with the volume ratio of mortar joints as a supplementary control variable for developing ANN models. Stefano et al. [72] employed an ANN to estimate the masonry compressive strength made by artificial or natural elements with cementitious or non-cementitious mortar Ease of repair. Steel structures in general can be repaired quickly and easily. Adaptation of prefabrication. Steel is highly suitable for prefabrication and mass production. Repetitive use. Steel can be reused after a structure is disassembled. Expanding existing structures. Steel buildings can be easily expanded by adding new bays or wings

that all defects of solid masonry wall be repaired before considering the instal-lation of interior insulation. Otherwise the insulation may alter the drying/con-duction gradient and cause degradation. Such repairs include the following: Cracked, loose and spalled bricks should be replaced. Deteriorated mortar, including hair More recent work included rebuilding of the steps leading down to the sidewalk, where the original retaining walls remain in place.

bricks made at Cook's of Marrickville. By the 1990s many of the bricks had simply fallen out of the walls due to lack of mortar.2 There was an obvious and desperate need for repointing but even here there were many areas with perfectly intact mortar. The walls were cleaned before being repointed Despite these desirable working characteristics, gypsum plaster was more vulnerable to water damage than lime. Lime plasters had often been applied directly to masonry walls (without lathing), forming a suction bond. They could survive occasional wind-driven moisture or water winking up from the ground. Gypsum plaster needed protection from water

But despite the folklore to the contrary, this did not mean that all of the masonry ceased to play a significant structural role. For many frame buildings constructed during the first half of the 20th century, the masonry cladding was consciously relied on to stabilize and stiffen the structure against lateral loads The mortar can then be used to secure bricks, stones, and yes, even gravestones for years. It is vital to the survival of historic construction, as lime mortar draws moisture into itself and out of the material it is attached to. Eventually (>50 years) the mortar will start to crumble, and need to be re-pointed between the cracks 4. Avoid masonry sealers such as silicone that will keep out liquid water but not water vapor.
