Compressive strength or compression strength is the capacity of a material or structure to withstand loads tending to reduce size as opposed to which withstands loads tending to elongate In other words compressive strength resists being pushed together whereas tensile strength resists tension being pulled apart
Strength charts for typical mortar and concrete are provided with the unit The recommended practice is to take seven readings and discarding the two readings farthest from the mean By doing this the possibilities of accidently striking a flaw or near surface piece of hard aggregate and using the resulting penetration to calculate strength are …
