Bricks - Thermal Conductivity and Thermal Resistance of Extruded and Pressed House Bricks

Background

Mass produced house bricks are generally manufactured in one of two ways:

         Extrusion

         Pressing

Provided below are the thermal conductivity data for house bricks manufactured using these techniques.
