### Determining the Compressive Strength of Clay Bricks

2015-12-13 · The compressive strength of a brick is: A. g L X = ①. where, X = compressive strength per unit of gross area; L = load to cause failure; and, A. g = gross area. If, with extruded bricks, a correction was applied for the perforations, then: A. n L X. 1 = ②. where, X. 1 = compressive strength per unit of net area; and, A. n = net area. Substituting L from . ②. into . ①
