STONE MASONRY
Stone Masonry
 The construction of stones bonded together with

mortar is termed as stone masonry where the
stones are available in a abundance in nature, on
cutting and dressing to the proper shape, they
provide

an

economical

material

for

the

construction of various building components such
as walls, columns, footings, arches, lintels, beams
etc.
Uses
1)

Building foundations, walls, piers, pillars, and
architectural works.

2)

Lintels, Beams, beams Arches, domes etc.,

3)

Roofs and Roof coverings.

4)

Cladding Works

5)

Dams, light houses, monumental structures.

6)

Paving jobs

7)

Railway, ballast, black boards and electrical switch
Selection of stone for stone
masonry:
1) Availability
2) Ease of working
3) Appearance
4) Strength and stability

5) Polishing characteristics
6) Economy

7) Durability

General Principles
 The stones to be used for stone masonry should

be hard, tough and durable.
The pressure acting on stones should be vertical.
The stones should be perfectly dressed as per
the requirements.
The heads and bond stones should not be of a
dumb bell shape.
In order to obtain uniform distribution of
load, under the ends of girders, roof trusses etc
large flat stones should be used
General Principles
 The mortar to be used should be good quality and

in the specified faces.
The construction work of stone masonry should
be raised uniformly.
The plumb bob should be used to check the
verticality of erected wall.
The stone masonry section should always be
designed to take compression and not the tensile
stresses.
The masonry work should be properly cured after
the completion of work, for a period of 2 to 3
weeks.
General Principles
 As far as possible broken stones or small stones

chips should not be used.
 Double scaffolding should be used for working at
higher level.
 The masonry hearting should be properly packed
with mortar and chips if necessary to avoid
hallows.
 The properly wetted stones should be used to
avoid mortar moisture being sucked.
Laying The Stone
 Decrease the stone thickness from the bottom to

the top of wall.
 Ensure that the headers in the heart of the wall

are the same size as in the face and extend at
least 12 in (300 mm) into the core or backing.
(Avoid Dumb-bell shaped stones)
 Ensure that headers in “walls of 2 feet (600 mm)

or less in thickness” extend entirely through the
wall. The headers shall occupy at least 20
percent of the face of the wall.
Laying The Stone
 Lay the masonry in roughly leveled courses. Ensure

that the bottom of the foundation is large, with
selected stones.
 Lay the courses with leaning beds parallel to the

natural bed of the material.
 Regularly diminish the thicknesses of the courses, if

varied, from the bottom to the top of the wall. Keep a
surplus supply of stones at the site to select from.
 Before laying the stone in the wall, shape and dress it

so that it will not loosen after it is placed. No dressing
or hammering which will loosen the stone will be
permitted after it is placed.
 Clean each stone and saturate it with water before

setting it. Clean and moisten the bed that will receive
it.
 Bed the stones in freshly made mortar with full joints.

Carefully settle the stones in place before the mortar
sets.
 Ensure that the joints and beds have an average

thickness of not more than 1 inch. (25 mm).
 Ensure that the vertical joints in each course break

with the adjoining courses at least 6 in. (150 mm).
 Do not place vertical joints directly above or below a
 If a stone is moved or if the joint is broken after the

mortar has set, take the stone up and thoroughly
clean the mortar from the bed and joints. Reset the
stone in fresh mortar.
 NOTE: Do not lay the masonry in freezing weather

or when the stone contains frost, except with
permission subjected to the required conditions.
 Whenever possible, properly point the face joints

before the mortar sets. If joints cannot be pointed,
rake them out to a depth of 1 in (25 mm) before the
mortar sets.
 Do not smear the stone face surfaces with the mortar

forced out of the joints or the mortar used in pointing.
 Thoroughly wet the joints pointed after the stone is

laid with clean water and fill with mortar.
 Drive the mortar into the joints and finish with an

approved pointing tool.
 Keep the wall wet while pointing. In hot or dry weather,

protect the pointed masonry from the sun and keep it
wet for at least three days after the pointing is finished.
 NOTE: Do not perform pointing in freezing weather

or when the stone contains frost.
 After the pointing is completed and the mortar is set,

thoroughly clean the walls and leave them in a neat
condition.
Masonry Joints
Types of Stone Masonry:

Based on the arrangement of the stone in the
construction and degree of refinement in the
surface finish, the stone masonry can be
classified broadly in the following two categories
Rubble masonry
2. Ashlar masonry
1.
1) Rubble masonry:
In this category, the stones used are either undressed
or roughly dressed having wider joints. This can be
further
subdivided
as
uncoursed, coursed, random, dry, polygonal and bint.
 (i) Uncoursed rubble masonry: This is the

cheapest, roughest and poorest form of stone
masonry. The stones used in this type of masonry
very much vary in their shape and size and are
directly obtained from quarry. Uncoursed rubble
masonry can be divided into the following.

a) Uncoursed random rubble
b) Uncoursed squared rubble
Uncoursed rubble masonry
 a) Uncoursed random rubble masonry: The weak

corners and edges are removed with mason’s
hammer. Generally, bigger stone blocks are
employed at quoins and jambs to increase the
strength of masonry.
Uncoursed rubble
masonry
 b) Uncoursed squared

rubble:
In this type the stone
blocks
are
made
roughly square with
hammer. Generally the
facing stones are given
hammer-dressed finish.
Large stones are used
as quoins. As far as
possible the use of
chips in bedding is
avoided.
Regular Course
 (iv) Built to regular course: In this type of stone

masonry the uniform height stones are used in
horizontal layers not less than 13cm in height.
Generally, the stone beds are hammered or chisel
dressed to a depth of at least 10cm from the face. The
stones are arranged in such a manner so that the
vertical joints of two consecutive curse do not coincide
with each other as shown in figure below.
 (v) Polygonal rubble masonry: In this type of

masonry the stones are roughly dressed to an
irregular polygonal shape. The stones should be
so arranged as to avoid long vertical joints in face
work and to break joints as much as possible.
Small stone chips should not be used to support
Quoins
the stones on the facing as shown in the figure
below.
Flint rubble masonry
 (vi) Flint rubble masonry: This type of masonry is

used in the areas where the flint is available in
plenty.
The flint stones varying in thickness from 8 to
15cm and in length from 15 to 30cm are arranged
in the facing in the form of coursed or uncoursed
masonry as shown below.
Dry rubble masonry

 This

type of masonry is
used in the construction of
retaining
walls
pitching
earthen dams and canal
slopes in the form of
random rubble masonry
without any mortar. The
hallow spaces left around
and stones should be tightly
packed with smaller stone
pieces as shown below.
Ashlar Masonry
 This type of masonry is built from accurately

dressed stones with uniform and fine joints of
about 3mm thickness by arranging the stone
blocks in various patterns.
 The backing of Ashlar masonry walls may be built

of Ashlar masonry or rubble masonry. The size of
stones blocks should be in proportion to wall
thickness.
Ashlar Masonry
 The various types of masonry can be classified

under the following categories are
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)

Ashlar fine
Ashlar rough
Ashlar rock or quarry faced

Cornice
 A cornice (from the Italian cornice meaning

"ledge") is generally any horizontal decorative
molding that crowns a building or furniture
element— the cornice over a door or window, for
instance, or the cornice around the top edge of a
pedestal or along the top of an interior wall.
 The function of the projecting cornice of a building

is to throw rainwater free of the building’s walls.

Stone Masonry BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

  • 2. Stone Masonry  The construction of stones bonded together with mortar is termed as stone masonry where the stones are available in a abundance in nature, on cutting and dressing to the proper shape, they provide an economical material for the construction of various building components such as walls, columns, footings, arches, lintels, beams etc.
  • 3. Uses 1) Building foundations, walls, piers, pillars, and architectural works. 2) Lintels, Beams, beams Arches, domes etc., 3) Roofs and Roof coverings. 4) Cladding Works 5) Dams, light houses, monumental structures. 6) Paving jobs 7) Railway, ballast, black boards and electrical switch
  • 4. Selection of stone for stone masonry: 1) Availability 2) Ease of working 3) Appearance 4) Strength and stability 5) Polishing characteristics 6) Economy 7) Durability

  • 8. General Principles  The stones to be used for stone masonry should     be hard, tough and durable. The pressure acting on stones should be vertical. The stones should be perfectly dressed as per the requirements. The heads and bond stones should not be of a dumb bell shape. In order to obtain uniform distribution of load, under the ends of girders, roof trusses etc large flat stones should be used
  • 9. General Principles  The mortar to be used should be good quality and     in the specified faces. The construction work of stone masonry should be raised uniformly. The plumb bob should be used to check the verticality of erected wall. The stone masonry section should always be designed to take compression and not the tensile stresses. The masonry work should be properly cured after the completion of work, for a period of 2 to 3 weeks.
  • 10. General Principles  As far as possible broken stones or small stones chips should not be used.  Double scaffolding should be used for working at higher level.  The masonry hearting should be properly packed with mortar and chips if necessary to avoid hallows.  The properly wetted stones should be used to avoid mortar moisture being sucked.
  • 11. Laying The Stone  Decrease the stone thickness from the bottom to the top of wall.  Ensure that the headers in the heart of the wall are the same size as in the face and extend at least 12 in (300 mm) into the core or backing. (Avoid Dumb-bell shaped stones)  Ensure that headers in “walls of 2 feet (600 mm) or less in thickness” extend entirely through the wall. The headers shall occupy at least 20 percent of the face of the wall.
  • 12. Laying The Stone  Lay the masonry in roughly leveled courses. Ensure that the bottom of the foundation is large, with selected stones.  Lay the courses with leaning beds parallel to the natural bed of the material.  Regularly diminish the thicknesses of the courses, if varied, from the bottom to the top of the wall. Keep a surplus supply of stones at the site to select from.  Before laying the stone in the wall, shape and dress it so that it will not loosen after it is placed. No dressing or hammering which will loosen the stone will be permitted after it is placed.
  • 13.  Clean each stone and saturate it with water before setting it. Clean and moisten the bed that will receive it.  Bed the stones in freshly made mortar with full joints. Carefully settle the stones in place before the mortar sets.  Ensure that the joints and beds have an average thickness of not more than 1 inch. (25 mm).  Ensure that the vertical joints in each course break with the adjoining courses at least 6 in. (150 mm).  Do not place vertical joints directly above or below a
  • 14.  If a stone is moved or if the joint is broken after the mortar has set, take the stone up and thoroughly clean the mortar from the bed and joints. Reset the stone in fresh mortar.  NOTE: Do not lay the masonry in freezing weather or when the stone contains frost, except with permission subjected to the required conditions.  Whenever possible, properly point the face joints before the mortar sets. If joints cannot be pointed, rake them out to a depth of 1 in (25 mm) before the mortar sets.  Do not smear the stone face surfaces with the mortar forced out of the joints or the mortar used in pointing.
  • 15.  Thoroughly wet the joints pointed after the stone is laid with clean water and fill with mortar.  Drive the mortar into the joints and finish with an approved pointing tool.  Keep the wall wet while pointing. In hot or dry weather, protect the pointed masonry from the sun and keep it wet for at least three days after the pointing is finished.  NOTE: Do not perform pointing in freezing weather or when the stone contains frost.  After the pointing is completed and the mortar is set, thoroughly clean the walls and leave them in a neat condition.

  • 18. Types of Stone Masonry: Based on the arrangement of the stone in the construction and degree of refinement in the surface finish, the stone masonry can be classified broadly in the following two categories Rubble masonry 2. Ashlar masonry 1.
  • 19. 1) Rubble masonry: In this category, the stones used are either undressed or roughly dressed having wider joints. This can be further subdivided as uncoursed, coursed, random, dry, polygonal and bint.  (i) Uncoursed rubble masonry: This is the cheapest, roughest and poorest form of stone masonry. The stones used in this type of masonry very much vary in their shape and size and are directly obtained from quarry. Uncoursed rubble masonry can be divided into the following. a) Uncoursed random rubble b) Uncoursed squared rubble
  • 20. Uncoursed rubble masonry  a) Uncoursed random rubble masonry: The weak corners and edges are removed with mason’s hammer. Generally, bigger stone blocks are employed at quoins and jambs to increase the strength of masonry.
  • 21. Uncoursed rubble masonry  b) Uncoursed squared rubble: In this type the stone blocks are made roughly square with hammer. Generally the facing stones are given hammer-dressed finish. Large stones are used as quoins. As far as possible the use of chips in bedding is avoided.
  • 22. Regular Course  (iv) Built to regular course: In this type of stone masonry the uniform height stones are used in horizontal layers not less than 13cm in height. Generally, the stone beds are hammered or chisel dressed to a depth of at least 10cm from the face. The stones are arranged in such a manner so that the vertical joints of two consecutive curse do not coincide with each other as shown in figure below.
  • 23.  (v) Polygonal rubble masonry: In this type of masonry the stones are roughly dressed to an irregular polygonal shape. The stones should be so arranged as to avoid long vertical joints in face work and to break joints as much as possible. Small stone chips should not be used to support Quoins the stones on the facing as shown in the figure below.
  • 24. Flint rubble masonry  (vi) Flint rubble masonry: This type of masonry is used in the areas where the flint is available in plenty. The flint stones varying in thickness from 8 to 15cm and in length from 15 to 30cm are arranged in the facing in the form of coursed or uncoursed masonry as shown below.
  • 25. Dry rubble masonry  This type of masonry is used in the construction of retaining walls pitching earthen dams and canal slopes in the form of random rubble masonry without any mortar. The hallow spaces left around and stones should be tightly packed with smaller stone pieces as shown below.
  • 26. Ashlar Masonry  This type of masonry is built from accurately dressed stones with uniform and fine joints of about 3mm thickness by arranging the stone blocks in various patterns.  The backing of Ashlar masonry walls may be built of Ashlar masonry or rubble masonry. The size of stones blocks should be in proportion to wall thickness.
  • 27. Ashlar Masonry  The various types of masonry can be classified under the following categories are 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) Ashlar fine Ashlar rough Ashlar rock or quarry faced Ashlar facing Ashlar chamfered Ashlar block in course
  • 29. Ashlar Masonry Ashlar rock or quarry faced Ashlar block in course
  • 31. Cornice  A cornice (from the Italian cornice meaning "ledge") is generally any horizontal decorative molding that crowns a building or furniture element— the cornice over a door or window, for instance, or the cornice around the top edge of a pedestal or along the top of an interior wall.  The function of the projecting cornice of a building is to throw rainwater free of the building’s walls.
