The joint NBRC and American Ceramic Society Structural Clay Products/Southwest Section Meeting that was scheduled for early June has been cancelled. In place of this physical meeting, the National Brick Research Center will be holding an interactive virtual meeting. This meeting will include a short business meeting, as required by our bylaws, followed by an interactive review of our research. The virtual meeting will be Tuesday, June 2, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM EST.
Topics for the Research Review will include:
- Thermal Performance (Hotbox, Climate Modelling and Solar Reflectance)
- Rheometer Evaluation of Extrusion Behavior
- ASTM Test Method Development (Improved IRA Test Method and Compressive Strength)
- Methods to control vanadium staining and improve fired color in higher iron buff clays
We intend to try a new format to make this meeting more interactive and engaging. We are currently researching platforms for this meeting and will send out an invitation and more information when it is available.
