Note 1 litre/m2 is the equivalent of 1 mm of rainfall. 28 Construction Technology Exposure will be calculated as either annual or spell. Annual exposure is the total amount of water hitting the wall surface in one year and would be used to gauge the overall moisture content of the wall and the prospect of moss or lichen growth, etc. Spell exposure is the total amount of water hitting the wall surface in relatively shorter periods of time with up to 4 days in the spell without any appreciable rain at all; it is used to determine peaks in rainfall and so enable the wall designers to take these into account.
Another lime available is a magnesiumbased lime which must have at least 5% of magnesium oxide before slaking. In practice the percentage is something in the order of 30+%. Hydraulic limes are also made and these exhibit properties similar to OPC, as the limestone from which they are made is a grey limestone containing traces of clay. Masonry Construction in Bricks and Blocks BS 890 covers other limes – semi-hydraulic and eminently hydraulic. These are not of interest at the present time. Sand Modern mortars use washed building sand – not any old sand but an aggregate where there is a definite grading of the particle sizes such that the proportion of binder to sand at around 1:3 to 1:4 allows for complete filling of the voids between and coating of the sand particles by the binder.
In particular they require the carbon dioxide in the air since setting is the action of the CO2 converting the hydrate back into the carbonate, releasing water which simply dries out.
