    Abstract

    Masonry mortar samples removed from masonry evidencing distress may be petrographically and chemically analyzed for composition. The success in reconstructing the original mortar composition depends upon the method of analysis, the availability of the parent materials or proper assumptions regarding their composition, and considerations during calculation. This report highlights various considerations for any analysis of mortar composition.
