Masonry Basics

Instructions:
  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Running bond every so many coarse






2. Brick with holes in em (Better gripping strength)






3. (2500psi) (17.25 mpa) High Strength mortar - High lateral - compressive loads - severe frost action - Below grade






4. Deposited by action of water or wind






5. Rough building stone that is obtained from riverbeds and rock strewn fields






6. Severe weathering - Harsh Winter - Springs - Summer






7. 1st CO






8. Deposited by action of water or wind






9. (30psi) (2.40) Medium Low Strength - Non load bearing interior.






10. Made in molds taken directly from real stone - Thin material - 1 1/2 Inches think - made of light weight concrete dried to match the coloration - of the authentic stone that its meant to imitate






11. 2nd Monolithic






12. SW - MW and NW






13. 1 horizontal row of Brick






14. Soft Mud Process - Dry Mud Process and Stiff Mud Process






15. Weakest in most masonry wall






16. Made in molds taken directly from real stone - Thin material - 1 1/2 Inches think - made of light weight concrete dried to match the coloration - of the authentic stone that its meant to imitate






17. Either igneous or sedimentary has been transformed by heat and pressure into a diff types of rock






18. Moderate Weathering / Mild / Lower grade strength durabillty






19. Stacked on top






20. Horizontal Reinforcing - Joint - Grout - Bond Beam - Vertical Reinforcing - Surface Bonding and Severe Seismic Zones or High Impact load






21. Looks like running bond but made from headers






22. Soft Mud Process - Dry Mud Process and Stiff Mud Process






23. Igneous Rock - Sedimentary Rock and Metamorphic Rock






24. Cold Weather - Dry Ingredients - Accelerate Cure - Batch Size - Enclosures and Heat






25. Header - stretch - header






26. Are large slabs






27. Bigger hole / add rebar






28. Made up of squared pieces (rectangular blocks)






29. Header Bond - Stack Bond - Flemish Bond - Monk Bond - English Bond and Common Bond or American Bond






30. End of the block






31. Rectangle of clay Flat on all sides






32. Be a Brick across multiple withs flat or on it's side






33. Looks like running bond but made from headers






34. 1st CO






35. Moderate Weathering / Mild / Lower grade strength durabillty






36. Thin slabs of stone that are used for flooring and paving either rectangular or irregular in outline






37. Course - Wythe - Stretcher - Header - Rowlock - Soldier and Corbel






38. Stretcher - header - stretcher






39. Made up of squared pieces (rectangular blocks)






40. Igneous Rock - Sedimentary Rock and Metamorphic Rock






41. Weakest in most masonry wall






42. Single Wythe Wall and Double Wythe Wall






43. 2nd Monolithic






44. (2500psi) (17.25 mpa) High Strength mortar - High lateral - compressive loads - severe frost action - Below grade






45. (1800psi) (12.4 mpa) Medium High Strength - High Flexural - bond strength - only 4 normal compressive loads






46. Fieldstone and Rubble Stone






47. Stood up rowlock






48. Running bond every so many coarse






49. (750psi) (5.17) Medium Strength - General use above grade.






50. Limited spanning capability / small opening in brick walls each brick sticks out more
