Abstract

With financial support from the Council for Masonry Research, the Research Committee of The Masonry Society has been involved in a strategic planning project known as "Planning for Enhanced Research in Masonry (PERM)." Through these efforts, an outcomes assessment report has been written on advances in masonry construction resulting from past research needs workshops, and a position paper summarizing the present state of masonry research and directions for the future. Based on these two documents, a strategic plan is being formulated for a coordinated plan of masonry research in this country. Whereas the stakeholders have yet to be identified to fund such a major research program, elements of the plan as presented herein should be of interest to individuals and groups involved in masonry research and its implementation. This extended abstract summarizes work under the PERM project and presents basic vision, mission and goal statements as defined at a recent planning workshop.
