EVALUATING THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF

UNIT STRENGTH METHOD. The unit strength method is often considered the least expensive and most convenient of the three methods. However, the unit strength method also tends to yield more conservative masonry strengths when compared to the prism test method.. Compliance with f’ m by the unit strength method is based on the net area compressive strength of the units and the type of mortar

Based on the results it is observed that compressive strength of concrete masonry unit cured for 7 days and tested in horizontal position is recorded as 720 psi (minimum) for 70% replacement and

What is the minimum required compressive strength for

Increasing the final design strength of masonry assemblies has not been the only recent change. In 2014, ASTM C90 was revised to increase the minimum compressive strength of a unit from 1900 psi (13.1 MPa) to 2000 psi (13.8 MPa). When using the recalibrated unit strength table above, a concrete masonry unit
