Brinell Hardness Conversions

I am trying to convert the strength of concrete (usually, in PSI) into a Brinell Hardness Number.  Is there anyone who can help with this?  Thanks!!!

I don't think you can.

Brinell Hardness is used for metal, not cement.

The way it works is a steel ball of a certain diameter is pressed into the material at a specific force. The Brinell Hardness is the force applied divided by the indentation the ball made in the metal.

If you were to try and do that to cement I think it would chip or crack, not make an indentation. But not sure, as I haven't heard of anyone trying it.
