Common Brick Vs Face Brick

Mar 06 2018Common bricks are made with basic brick clay with no attempt at color control or special surface treatment They may vary in color and texture within a single brick Most are red the color coming from iron content in the clay Common bricks actually are a little bit larger than average to allow for mortar joints to fill a 2-by-4-by-8-inch

Drying Force of Air

10-3 bar = 1 millibar Example - The Drying Force of Air Air is heated from 21 o C and 50% relative humidity (A) to 38 o C (B) With the saturation pressure from the table above and the expression for relative humidity the vapor pressure in (A) can be expressed as: p w = (25 mbar) (50%) / () = 12 5 (mbar) The drying force in A can be calculated as:
