    Unconfined compressive strength is compressive strength, multiplied by an aspect . ratio, Ka (see AS4456.4, Table 1). The unit height divided by its thickness is used to . determine the aspect ratio. A solid brick will give a lower compressive strength if crushed on its end rather than on its flat, as normally laid
