tuckpointing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

How does tuckpointing affect mortar tensile, compressive and shear strengths?  This is for 3-wythe brick walls in two separate buildings… one is about 80 years old, the other is 120 years old.  Any thoughts on mortar tensile, compressive and shear strength of these old buildings?
