Compressive Strength Of Concrete Astm

What is the minimum required compressive

In 2014 ASTM C90 was revised to increase the minimum compressive strength of a unit from 1900 psi MPa to 2000 psi MPa When using the recalibrated unit strength table above a concrete masonry unit complying with the minimum requirements of ASTM C90 and laid in Type S or M mortar produces an assembly compressive strength of 2 000 psi MPa which is substantially larger
