The strength and elastic modulus of a porous brittle solid such as gypsum have been studied using an acousto-ultrasonic technique. Acousto-ultrasonics has been found to be a sensitive indicator of strength and porosity which are linearly related to some powers of a stress wave factor. New equations for porosity dependence of ultrasonic velocity, elastic modulus and strength of brittle solids have been proposed.
