AbstractLime has been produced from dolomitic limestones in the Toronto area for many years. More recently masonry cements have been made by blending hydrated lime from these same limestones with Portland cement. Though these masonry cements are shown to be unsound by the autoclave test it is maintained that there have been no obvious difficulties from their use in the field. This matter has recently been the preparation of Canadian specifications for masonry cements. The results of a laboratory study of dimensional changes in brick masonry piers made with such cements is now reported.
