Compressive strength calculation

  1. Nov 1, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Fracture load = 56000lb
    Radius=3 in
    Compressive strength = (F/pi*(r)^2)
    CS=630psi

    I was wondering if I did it right. Thanks

    Formula is ok but your math is wrong.
