crushing strength

[′krəsh·iŋ ‚streŋkth]
(mechanics)
The compressive stress required to cause a solid to fail by fracture; in essence, it is the resistance of the solid to vertical pressure placed upon it.

crushing strength

The ultimate strength of a brittle material (such as concrete) at which disintegration by crushing occurs; the greatest compressive stress it can withstand without fracture.

Most current methodology relies on indirect measurements such as tablet crushing strength and friability to assess tablet robustness and coating weight gain to estimate the amount of coating on tablets.
Samples of southern yellow pine outer bark and wood were tested in compression to determine values for modulus of elasticity, stress at proportional limit, and maximum crushing strength. Results reported here resolve inconsistencies in the compressive strength data previously reported by others for pine bark.

Methods of testing clay pipe for crushing strength, absorption; and acid resistance are outlined in ASTM C301, "Standard Method of Testing Vitrified Clay Pipe." ASTM C828 is a recommended practice for "Low-Pressure Air Test of Vitrified Clay Pipe Sewer Lines (4 through 12 in.)." In the recommended procedure, a section of line is plugged and air is introduced into the line.
