BRICK MASONRY IN MUD MORTAR
Detail:
BRICK MASONRY IN MUD MORTAR
Product: Improved system of brick masonry in mud mortars.
Application: Construction of single storey low cost buildings in rural areas (other than high seismic zones and high rainfall areas).
Feature: The soil with clay content of 10 to 20% is ideal for making mud mortar. Presence of moisture reduces the compressive strength of masonry drastically. Basic stresses for masonry in mud mortar, both in dry and moist conditions, have been arrived at known strength of bricks. It varies from 1.5 to 4.0 N/mm2 in dry condition and from 1.3 to 3.3 N/mm2 in moist condition.
Commercialisation: Commercialised.
Economy: Simple in construction, 100% saving of cement and fine aggregate. No special equipment required
Investment: --------
Equipment: --------
Raw materials: Bricks and clay rich mud.
Institute: Central Building Research Institute
