safe compressive strength of concrete blocks

The variation of compressive strength of the blocks with the quantity of additive has been plotted in Fig.4. It is observed that the compressive strength of the blocks varies in a non-linear pattern with the quantity of additive. Initially the compressive strength increases until a peak value is attained and decreases thereafter

    In the use of concrete blocks for the walls of buildings, the stress to which they are subjected is almost entirely one of compression. In compressive strength well-made concrete does not differ greatly from ordinary building stone. It is difficult to find reliable records of tests of sand and gravel concrete, 1 to 4 and 1 to 5, such as is used in making blocks; the following figures show
