Abstract

Mortar has been widely used in building construction as a finishes and as a binder to bind masonry units together. The strength and the resistance to environmental attack such as salt water are very important. Water cement ratio is one of the common criteria that may affect the durability and others of mortar. This study presents the effect of water cement ratio on the development of compressive strength, total porosity and the migration of chloride into mortar samples. The compressive strength test result shows that water cement ratio has inverse relationship with the development of compressive strength and a direct relationship with the total porosity. For water cement ratio ranging from 0.3 to 0.5, there was increase in compressive strength approximately 30% - 35% for all mortar samples and the total porosity was reduce to 3% to 5%. For chloride migration test, the rate of chloride migration is too fast. The samples are too small which is 50mmj; a full penetration was achieved for all types of samples.
