Standard Test Methods for Flexural Bond Strength of Masonry
|Publication Date:||1 December 2015|
|ICS Code (Walls. Partitions. Façades):||91.060.10|
These test methods cover determination of the flexural bond strength of unreinforced masonry assemblages. Two procedures are provided:
Test Method A-Simply supported beam with thirdpoint loading.
Test Method B-Simply supported beam with uniform loading.
These test methods cover the application of the tests using either inch-pound or SI units. The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
