Registration is open for the ASTM International 2022 Masonry Symposium: Advancing Masonry Technology, June 14 at the Hyatt Regency Seattle (Washington, USA). The event dovetails the June standards meetings of its four co-sponsors: ASTM Committees C01 on Cement, C07 on Lime, C07 on Mortars and Grouts for Unit Masonry, and C15 on Manufactured Masonry Units. 

Committee members aim to gather and disseminate the latest information on innovations in masonry materials, design, specification, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation. The symposium will emphasize the application of ASTM standards to those areas, plus their alignment with building codes, project specifications and international standards. Beyond ASTM standards, topics to be explored are anchors and ties; building codes; portland, blended, hydraulic and masonry cements; detailing; durability; grouts; inspection; failure investigation; and, durability. Symposium registration can be obtained¬†here. Additional information on the program can be obtained from ASTM’s Jennifer Buono, 610/832-9698, or event co-chairs: Portland Cement Association’s Jamie Farny, [email protected], or International Masonry Institute’s Brian Trimble, [email protected].
