Lime mortar is composed of lime and an aggregate such as sand, mixed with water.The Ancient Egyptians were the first to use lime mortars. About 6,000 years ago [citation needed], they used lime to plaster the pyramids at Giza.In addition, the Egyptians also incorporated various limes into their religious temples as well as their homes. Indian traditional structures built with lime mortar ...

Foundry sand testing is a process used to determine if the foundry sand has the correct properties for a certain casting process. The sand is used to make moulds and cores via a pattern.In a sand casting foundry there are broadly two reasons for rejection of the casting — metal and sand — each of which has a large number of internal variables.
