Evaluation and Repair of Masonry Construction

2020-2-24 · Masonry is the world''s most common building material, existing as adobe, brick, concrete masonry, and stone construction. These types of masonry units have been used for thousands of years for both utilitarian and monumental structures, most often as load-bearing walls in building structures, as masonry arch bridges, or as retaining walls.

ASTM Test Results

Compressive Strength. Compressive Strength is the stress, in pounds per square inch (psi) that will rupture a stone sample. Very rarely is the compressive strength of a stone much of a factor in stone selection. A column of stone with a density of 160 lbs/cf that is 100 feet tall exerts a compressive stress of only 110 pounds per square inch.
