Standard Test Methods for Flexural Bond Strength of Masonry
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 These test methods cover determination of the flexural bond strength of unreinforced masonry assemblages. Two procedures are provided:
1.1.1 Test Method A -Simply supported beam with third-point loading.
1.1.2 Test Method B -Simply supported beam with uniform loading.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Significance and Use
These test methods are intended to provide simplified and economical means for gathering comparative research data on the flexural bond strength developed with different types of masonry units and mortar or for the purpose of checking job quality control (materials and workmanship).
Note 1—These test methods are not intended for use in establishing design stresses. For this purpose, Methods E 72
flexural bond strength; masonry units; mortar; simply supported beam; stack bonded prism; third point loading; uniform load; ICS Number Code 91.060.10 (Walls. Partitions. Facades)
