CVE 474 Construction Materials/ Concrete Lab Experiment #3: Masonry: Mortars, Grout, and Brick Prisms Group #3 5/17/2011 Jonathan Brate Abstract: The objectives for this lab are to learn the ASTM Standards and corresponding industry specifications that apply to mortar and grout, to apply ASTM Standards for mortar and grout specimens for conformance testing, to determine the compressive strength for brick prisms, and to examine the effects of cold and hot environments on the strength of mortars. These were accomplished by making 3 2”x2” mortar cubes following ASTM C 109, a masonry prism using 3

Part I: Mortar Properties The mortar cubes for this experiment were made following ASTM C 109 procedures. It is generally expected that the mortar cubes compressive strength will be less than the masonry prisms. Part II: Masonry Prisms The masonry prisms for this experiment were made following ASTM C 1314 procedures. It is generally expected that the compressive strength of the masonry prisms will be greater than that of the mortar cubes but less than that of the grout tests. Part III: Grout The grout specimens for this experiment were made following ASTM C 1019 procedures. It is generally expected that the grout specimen’s compressive strength will be greater than both the mortar cubes and the masonry prisms. Results:
