Masonry partitions represent the interface among the building’s inside and the outside atmosphere. Masonry partitions are normally composed of fired-clay bricks (solid or perforated) or blocks (concrete or earth-based), yet long ago (and even within the current) they have been usually linked as desiring an additional unique thermal and acoustical insulation layer.

Example text

However, in the case of the effect of particular chemicals Page 13 on the durability of a given block, reference should be made to the manufacturer.  The old provision of BS 2028, 1364:1968 for testing sawn part blocks was unsatisfactory, particularly where the blocks which contained a void or other feature were used which resulted in an asymmetric specimen on sawing.  The ten blocks must be immersed for at least 16 hours in water at a temperature between 10–25°C and allowed to drain for about 30 minutes under damp sacking or similar material before the capping procedure is carried out.

The results should be used to determine the age at which the mortar reaches an average compressive strength of at least 28 N/mm2, which will normally be two to four days.  After checking, the complete specimens should be placed in water at a temperature of 20±2°C until the mortar used for both test faces has attained the required minimum strength.  The rate of application of load should be maintained as far as possible right up to failure.  The mean of the compressive strength of ten blocks is taken as the average compressive strength of the sample and is reported to the same accuracy as the individual results.

Above zone of normal impacts from people but liable to impacts from thrown or kicked objects. F. Above zone of normal impacts from people and not liable to impacts from thrown or kicked objects. 0 kg may be used—this being type H2.  This is test type S1.  Particular attention should, however, be paid to the impact resistance of tiling and other vertical cladding systems. e.  The concrete density can be used to assess the thermal conductivity of the material and hence the thermal resistance of the block.
