The Mortar Analysis:
- Samples are examined for their color, texture, hardness, homogeneity, stability and relative porosity
- Chemical testing will be carried out following the Jedrzejewska analytical method to determine the mortar’s composition
- The aggregate will be analyzed visually to determine its color, shape and particle size
- A sieve analysis will also be done to determine particle sizes and ratio of the aggregates in distribution to the whole sample.
