Abstract
The experimental characterization of mortar in historical masonry constructions is a difficult task. Entire units or unit samples can be extracted, without deteriorating excessively the masonry member. The mechanical properties of bricks can be obtained from standard tests with sufficient precision. On the contrary, the difficulties in the assessment of historical mortars even arise from the extraction of appropriate specimens. If it is possible to take undisturbed mortar samples, they can be su...
