Using of Normalized Experimental Curves in Masonry Strengths Estimation

Tomme: LVIII (LXII) | Fascicle: 1 | 2012
Pages: 59-64
Abstract text:
The paper introduces a model used to determine the resistance of mortar in masonry by connecting the penetration force of a mortar sample taken from the joint of a masonry work embedded in a plaster disk, and the standard mortar resistance. Determinations have been performed on different mortar samples with known characteristics and the penetration force of the mortar sample; they facilitate the evaluation of mortar resistance, mortar which will be taken from the existent masonry work.
Key Words:
masonry; mortar; fracture; disc-test; sample.
