ASTM C1298 – Standard Guide for Design and Construction of Brick Liners for Industrial Chimneys


This guide covers procedures for the design, construction, and serviceability of brick liners for industrial chimneys.

The structural design criteria are applicable to vertical masonry cantilever structures supported only at their base, either by a foundation, a concrete pedestal, or by some means from the outer concrete shell.

Excluded from direct consideration are single-wythe, sectional brick linings that are supported on a series of corbels cast in the outer chimney shell.
