In the structural masonry system, the wall performs a structural function, absorbing the loads imposed on the system, being formed by blocks joined by seating mortar. In this constructive method, the quality control of the inputs and the correct dimensioning of the components is of paramount importance. In addition to the inputs, other factors can compromise the strength of the wall, for example the mortar bedding types. Two types are recommended, full bedding and face shell bedding. In full bedding, the mortar is disposed in all septum of the block. Therefore, this work has the objective of evaluating concrete blocks prisms with two mixed mortars traces of differents compressive strenght. It is concluded that the increase of the compressive strength of the mortar influences the increase in the compressive strength of the prisms with full bedding type.
