The structural masonry has as basic characteristic the use of the supporting walls, formed with structural blocks joined by seating mortar. The blocks must have compressive strength compatible with the loads to which they will be subjected, and the mortar must be adequately resisted in order not to compromise the structure of which it is part, and absorb the deformations to which the masonry is subjected. Two types of mortar bedding type are recommended, full bedding, covering net área for unit and face sheel bedding, where the mortar is placed only in the face shell area of the block. This work aims to test the compression of face shell bedding concrete blocks prisms with two traces of mixed mortar with different compressive strength. It’s concluded that the increase of the compressive strength of the mortar influences the increase in the compressive strength of the prisms with face shell bedding type.
