Contact usThe term crushing strength is also used, mainly in the context of ceramic materials. In the context of refractories, the term cold crushing strength is used for compressive strength measured at room temperature, to highlight the fact that the value does not reflect performance at high temperatures.

Contact usCompressive strength refers to the ability of a certain material or structural element to withstand loads that reduce the size of that material, or structural element, when applied. A force is applied to the top and bottom of a test sample, until the sample fractures or is deformed.. Materials such as concrete and rock are often evaluated using a compressive strength test and in these cases ...

Contact usMaximum crushing strength is the maximum stress sustained by a board when pressure is applied parallel to the grain. Impact bending involves dropping a hammer of a given weight upon a board from successively greater heights until complete rupture occurs. The height of the drop that causes failure provides a comparative measure of how well the ...

Contact usCompressive strength is the standard strength parameter of concrete that can be evaluated under site conditions as well. The most common method is to use cylinder cores drilled off the structure. Momber (1998b) was probably the first to suggest to use the way how a cylinder fails during the compression test as a criterion of the material behaviour during hydrodemolition.
