This test is carried out to determine the compressive strength of cement. Test Procedure for compressive strength of cement: (i) The mortar of cement and sand is prepared. The proportion is 1:3 which means that (X) gm of cement is mixed with 3(X) gm of sand.

Live ChatIt depends on the application, if its used for laying bricks the minimum resistance should be around 70% of the brick resistance, which puts it at a 1.5MPa minimum or so. If its just used as filling material or for regularazing surfaces the comp...

Live ChatMortar is a mixture of cement and sand in a specified ratio on which the strength of the mortar depends. If the mortar is weak then also its compressive strength is very low but if the mortar is a strong one then its compressive strength is also very high.

PRISM TEST METHOD ASTM C1314, Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Masonry Prisms (ref. 3), contains provisions for determining the compressive strength of a masonry prism: an assemblage made of representative units, mortar and grout (for grouted masonry construction).

Live ChatCompressive strength of mortar is determined by using 2 inch or 50mm cubes as per ASTM C109 / C109M Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Hydraulic Cement Mortars. Mortar is a combination of cement, sand mixed with water. It is used for
