Can someone tell me if they know or what they would think is stronger, six cement blocks stacked high or a board that is 6 feet long and 6 by 6?
are the cement blocks stacked without mortar? are the cement blocks loaded in bending or compression? is the board loaded in bending or compression? What is the criterion of failure? cracking or breaking? Not a fair comparison with out some explanation.
