3.5-30 n/mm2 Minimum Compressive strength of first class brick is 10.5 MPa. 12 people Why compressive strength is specific requirement for the bricks?
The bricks produced were about 29% lighter than clay bricks. The compressive strength of bricks manufactured from fly ash possessed higher than 20 MPa.
On the other hand, some well-burned brick has compressive strength exceeding 15,000 psi. Because portland-cement-lime mortar is normally stronger than the
