  2. Apply load axially at a uniform rate of 14 N/mm² (140 kgf/cm²) per minute till failure occurs and note the maximum load at failure.
  3. The load at failure shall be the maximum load at which the specimen fails to produce any further increase in the indicator reading on the testing machine.

Note: In place of plywood sheets Plaster of Paris may be used to ensure a uniform surface for application of load.
