The purpose of this test as stated in original report is to determine the fire resistance value of concrete block and to ascertain what standard methods of mixing, which commonly used aggregates and which of the typical shapes of block produce the most satisfactory block judging from the fire resistance standpoint. It is not intended that definite ratings be assigned to the varieties of block submitted for test, but it is expected that sufficent data will be obtained from these tests to determine fire resistance values of concrete block, brick and tile relative to other building materials and simplify the task of assigning fair ratings to the products of individual manufacturers.
