Masonry units and segmental pavers - methods of test: method 18: determining the tensile strength of masonry units and segmental pavers

This Standard sets out the method for determining the tensile strength (indirect splitting strength) of masonry units and segmental pavers of most types, sizes and materials. It describes the preparation of the specimens, the conditioning required before testing, the apparatus, the method of test, the method of calculation and the contents of the test report. The test may not be suitable for very highly perforated units.
