How Strong are Bricks? Hydraulic Press Test!

Which is the strongest brick type? Regular or concrete bricks? How many tons they can take? We are going to test that out with our 150 ton hydraulic press and 150 ton force sensor

    Because You had previously tried crushing the brick. Weaking its internals. So when you turned the brick on its side. Its was already extremely weak.

    7:58 assuming you were using the same brick, it's because you crushed it the first time. The brick maintained it's shape, but it was crushed inside, that's why it shattered pretty fast as it was already damaged. And if it was a different brick, it's because, my guess, is that with width really made a big difference.

    No es válido para el último ya que el area de presión disminuyó y por lo tanto la fuerza que le aplica tiene un efecto más rápido al corte, debió hacer la prueba bajo las mismas condiciones como lo fue para los demás bloques

    Please do the flat brick again but put thin sheets of rubber cut from inner tube on both upper and lower surface of the brick to prevent uneven loading. I think it will be even stronger.

    The first concrete that he tried that didn't explode on one side but did when he rolled it over to the other side: I believe it was compromised on the first press and thus became weaker on the second press. I posit if he tried two concrete blocks with the same shape, size and composition, he would have them stronger on both sides.

    Your experienced is highly flawed ‘cause you’re not distributing even pressure throughout the entire object. You’re only focusing pressure on one area which will but extra strain on the object.

    Seems like if the bricks were sandwiched between some plywood pieces the results would be a lot better/more consistent. No brick is perfectly flat and I'm sure the press surfaces aren't either. Any uneven force on the brick is risking starting cracks. This is why mortar is used between bricks... to distribute the forces more or less evenly.

    I think that the diameter of pressure plate matters here coz each time the brick breaks near the ending point of plate so if the diameter will be greater than the brick length then obviously the strength will come more.

    Hi, I thought, the bricks were not put tension uniformly. Hence the strongest showed week in readings. Pls try keeping the brick between two wooden plank. And make sure the surface is really parrellell or grind and make it flat evenly.

    I have a suggestion, with an intent behind it : try old fashion bricks, very very old fashion if you can. Intent, to prove the tower of Babel is an embellished myth or a pure invention. It was supposed to be constructed with bricks. I think like many other I know that old bricks from that time were never able to sustain more than hundred meters and so never a really good challenger to reach God. To whoever it may interest after to infer other conclusion from that. You can even try to make some partnership with a university or a polytechnic school or some archealogical instance to have reproduce some bricks in few different ways to match those ancient technologies. It may event explain partly why ziggurat where not higher than what we observe and why egyptian's pyramids where made from stone instead of conglomerate. It is an idea.

    A major factor is part of the brick not being crushed, it causes a difference within the brick of compression stress, causing it to break. I'd bet the last one had the punch and die compressing the whole surface area it wouldn't have broke

    that circular base being smaller then the brick is gonna make it break too soon. You need a bigger surface to get a true reading. Also the bricks are not perfectly flat so they crack right at the beginning. Normally mortar would better support the brick as it conforms to the uneven surfaces.

    I bet you could get probably triple the pressure resistance if there was zero horizontal movement and a softer surface between them. Maybe sheets of plywood or some 2x8 boards with steel plates against the press dies so it doesn’t just push into the wood. I think the steel is concentrating pressure points causing them to crack prematurely. Most of the explosive motion seems to be coming from the rebound of the scale.

    this test was bit unfear for most bricks. by having just some paper (5..20 sheets) between brick and tool helps to prevent microcracking of brick. I could expect 2..3 times bigger results. it work also for brick to brick competition between bricks and tools.
