Before , IBC required the bond strength of SFRM—when tested in accordance with ASTM E,—to be in excess of kPa ( psf). In , IBC moved away from a single value for the bond strength of SFRM for all buildings, and implemented bond strength requirements based on the building’s height. The code maintained the kPa bond strength demand for buildings with a height of less. The BRENCH is a BRE development of the bond wrench, an in-situ tool for testing the bond of masonry units (bricks and blocks) to mortar. It is a powerful tool, used for investigating suspect masonry, for quality control of new work and for laboratory investigation of bond.

The first method is the “Test Method for Laboratory-Prepared Specimens.” Its purpose is to compare the bond strengths (under the given conditions) of masonry mortars. It could be used, for example, to check the quality of mortar products after production, or to indicate the bond strength (under the given conditions) of a mortar product without requiring the product to be tested in.
Withdrawn Rationale: This test method provides two procedures for measuring bond strength of mortar to masonry units: a crossed brick couplet tensile test for evaluating mortar-brick bond strength and a stacked-bond, flexural test for evaluating mortar-concrete block bond strength.
Masonry Grout Testing. Masonry grout is used to fill the cells of units and voids of masonry construction to bond the units, mortar, and reinforcement into a single composite assemblage. Usually, grout is specified by compressive strength, so field testing of grout on the job site is very common.
ASTM C looks similar to other masonry unit standards developed through ASTM, and covers: 1) minimum requirements for constituent materials, 2) sampling and testing criteria, and; 3) requirements for minimum compressive strength, minimum freeze-thaw durability, minimum bond strength, maximum drying shrinkage, and physical dimensions.
Inadequate bond strength will inevitably lead to Bond strength testing of masonry. book in masonry construction. Because this cracking is a brittle mode of failure and there is often little scope for redistribution of stresses, there is potential for widespread damage if bond strength is inadequate.

The flexural strength of stack bond walls spanning horizontally can be increased. For masonry under construction, we need to determine compliance with the specified compressive strength of masonry. We have two options for accomplishing this. One is the unit strength method and the other is testing masonry prisms for compressive strength.

In addition to the preceding standards, other standards, while not generally used for quality assurance testing. Mortar cement (ASTM C, ref. 4j) is a hydraulic cement similar to masonry cement, with the added requirement of a minimum bond strength requirement.
Blended hydraulic cements (ASTM C, ref. 4g) consist of standard portland cement or air-entrained portland cement (denoted by -A) combined through blending with such materials as blast furnace. Masonry bond strength. The bond-wrench method of establishing masonry (flexural) bond strength was adopted in this study rather than the wall panel flexural test.
It has been shown, however, that both tests produce similar results. In the bond-wrench method, a masonry stack-bonded prism or a couplet is subjected to an eccentric force Cited by: Masonry Mortar Specifications.

Bond, in masonry, systematic arrangement of bricks or other building units composing a wall or structure in such a way as to ensure its stability and strength. The various types of bond may also have a secondary, decorative function. Bonding may be achieved by overlapping alternate courses (rows.
The study showed that moisture content of the masonry and mortar strength have significant influence on the flexural bond strength of the masonry. Khalaf  demonstrated the Z-shaped test specimens for investigation of flexural bond strength and observed that the proposed Z-shaped specimen is capable of determining the flexural bond by: Masonry compression, bond wrench, and shear bond tests were undertaken.
The experimental results indicate that the masonry flexural bond strength and bed-joint cohesion can be satisfactorily related to the mortar compressive strength. The flexural bond strength of masonry in particular is needed for the design of masonry walls subjected to horizontal forces applied normal to the face of the wall, such as wind forces.
Researchers and standards have suggested different kinds of specimens and test procedures to determine the flexural bond strength. BOND-TEST 20 Purpose The BOND-TEST is used to conduct a pull-off test in accordance with ASTM C, "Test Method for Tensile Strength of Concrete Surfaces and the Bond Strength or Tensile Strength of Concrete Repair and Overlay Materials by Direct Tension (Pull-off Method)."File Size: KB.
The purpose of conducting bond wrench tests on a wall that had been previously tested with an air bag to determine if the method outlined in the test procedure, HCTP, was a practical method of in-situ testing, and to compare it with ASTM C which is a method for testing masonry prisms.
A Study of the Compatibility of Brick and Mortar for Maximizing Masonry Bond. Flexural Bond Strength of Concrete Masonry Prisms Using Masonry Cement. Flexural Bond Strength TestingAn Evaluation of the Bond Wrench Testing. The bond between brick and mortar plays an important role in the ability of masonry to resist loads.
The single and most important property of mortar is bond strength, and it is critical that this. The material properties of mortar which influence the structural performance of masonry are compressive strength, bond strength and elasticity.
Because the compressive strength of masonry mortar is less important than bond strength, workability and water retentivity, the latter properties should be given principal consideration in mortar selection.
Testing compressive strength of masonry before construction and for every m 2 of masonry work during construction is required as per Building Code Requirements and Specification for Masonry Structure (ACI 11) and under its quality assurance program, certification of : Madeh Izat Hamakareem.Masonry Materials Testing.
Brick, stone, marble, granite, limestone, cast stone, concrete block, travertine, glass block, stucco, ceramic tile—almost every imaginable type of building material has been used in masonry.

This paper deals with an experimental study on flexural bond strength of masonry using various blocks in combination with different mortars. Flexural bond strength of masonry has been determined by testing stack-bonded prisms using a modified bond wrench test set-up.
