Variation in compressive properties of Indian brick ...

This observation agrees with the study carried out by Kaushik et al. for the similar case of Indian solid clay brick masonry with cement-sand mortar (where, the strength of brick, mortar and masonry prism are 28.9, 15.2, and 7.2 N/mm 2, respectively). This is because, during compression of masonry prisms constructed with stiff bricks, the brick ...

Clay bricks can vary in strength from about 7 N/mm2 to well over 100 N/mm2. The strength of clay bricks also varies with the bricks’ porosity. For low rise buildings, bricks of 5.2 N/mm2 should be sufficient. As for the high rise building, engineering bricks or those with higher compressive strength

Flexural bond strength of masonry using various blocks and ...

Mar 01, 1996  Flexural bond strength of masonry has been determined by testing stack-bonded prisms using a modified bond wrench test set-up. The effect of mortar composition and strength on the masonry's flexural bond strength using three types of masonry units (stabilized mud blocks, stabilized soil-sand blocks and burnt brick) has been examined.
