# What is Compressive Insurance?

Comprehensive auto insurance covers a wide variety of situations that include fire, theft, weather damage, and vandalism. It does not cover collision.

### What is compression stress?

In geology the term compression refers to a set of stresses directed toward the center of a rock mass. Compressive strength refers to the maximum compressive stressthat can be applied to a material before failure occurs. When the maximum compressive stress is in a horizontal orientation, thrust faulting can occur, resulting in the shortening and thickening of that portion of the crust. When the maximum compressive stress is vertical, a section of rock will often…

### In splitting tensile test actually you are getting compressive strength but in answer you are writing it as tensile strength why?

The splitting tensile test specimen is subjected to a compressive load. For brittle matrixes such as cementitious products, the compressive strength is typically around an order of magnitude higher than tensile strength. On a microstructure scale, the compressive forces are trying to crush the individual crystallites while the tensile forces only have to fracture the connections between crystallites. The splitting tensile test specimen fails due to the tensile forces generated as it distorts perpendicular to…

### Is phosphor bronze has high compressive strength?

The compressive strength of Phosphor Bronze is directly proportional to the tensile strength, For example 1/2 hard phosphor bronze has a Tensile Strength of 60 to 75 ksi and a Yield Strength of 45 to 70. For typical engineering calculations, the compressive strength can be considered equal to the yield strength.

### Different between cube and cylinder in concrete compressive test?

The difference in compressive strength is due to the difference between the modulus of elasticity of concrete and that of the steel which is used to apply the compressive force on the concrete. The pressure applies a lateral confinement pressure which is equal to d/3 meaning that for the cylinder, 2d/3 is confined leaving d/3 unconfined whereas for the cylinder 2d/3 is confined means all of the cube is confined. This leads to the cube…
