The strong axis

When concrete block are made on a machine
the mix gets compacted in the vertical direction
consolidation in this axis is seen
as the strongest axis upon inspection.

This means the weaker axis is horizontal
and not nearly as strong as it could be
if the block is hit on the side it’s not long ‘til
it breaks and crumbles from flying debris.

Like things will fly in a tornado
will poke holes in regular block
and they will crush like a tomato
what seemed strong is quite a shock.

But if you use my block design
the stronger axis faces out
flying debris? Pay no mind
your building’s safer and more stout.
