Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to calculate by hand the maximum load that a concrete 1m x 1m x 1m block can take before failing. The load is applied uniformly across the top of the block.

I've found out that the average compressive strength of concrete is 70 MPa. Is there a formula that makes use of the compressive strength value to find the maximum load?

Thanks!
