AbstractUnit masonry used in chimneys is required to resist additional stresses to those which masonry in walls must withstand, and an understanding of the properties of mortars required for these special conditions of use is therefore necessary. This paper is a contribution from Germany to the technical literature on this subject, with particular reference to the influence of various types of mortars on the elasticity and strength of unit masonry.
