The specimen is the position in a compression examine machine with 6 mm plywood on top and bottom of it to get a consistent load on the specimen. Then the load is applied lengthwise at an unvarying rate of 14 N/mm2. The crushing load is noted. Then the crushing strength is the proportion of crushing load to the zone of brick loaded. A median of five specimens is getting hold as the crushing strength.
