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.
