EVALUATING THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE
UNIT STRENGTH METHOD. The unit strength method is often considered the least expensive and most convenient of the three methods. However, the unit strength method also tends to yield more conservative masonry strengths when compared to the prism test method.. Compliance with f’ m by the unit strength method is based on the net area compressive strength of the units and the type of

EVALUATING THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE
Compliance with the specified compressive strength is verified by one of two methods: the unit strength method or the prism test method. These two methods are referenced in masonry design codes (refs. 1, 4), specifications (ref. 2), and standards (ref. 3) as rational procedures for verifying masonry compressive strength.
