Bs 3291 1985 Clay Brick

Compressive Strength and Water Absorption

12-05-2015· Compressive strength tests were conducted in accordance with BS 3921:1985. Water absorptions of the samples were determined by using 24 h cold immersion test and 5 h boiling test. Bricks with mix ratio 1:0:10 (B5) containing 100 % quarry dust in replacing the sand gave the highest strength and the lowest water absorption compared to other ratios.

Claybricks & Tiles | General Brick Specifications

Bricks are the only man-made building materials that testify to their use since the early human civilization. With their attractive appearances and superior properties such as high compressive strength and durability, excellent fire and weather resistance, good thermal and sound insulation, bricks are widely used for building, civil engineering work, and landscape design.
