To withstand such loads, the codes typically call for a tensile modulus of rupture strength of at least 50 lbf/in (0.345 newton/mm) for the finished block.
Flexural Strength: A more accurate measure of the bending strength of stone than the modulus of rupture, and is required for design calculations for the use or thin bed cladding.
In-grade testing (AS/NZS4063:1992): Bending tests to determine Modulus of Elasticity and Modulus of Rupture and direct tension and compression tests.
Research has shown that a direct correlation exists between the bending stiffness of a piece of lumber, its density, its bending strength or modulus of rupture (MOR), and its ultimate tensile strength.
Wood bending stiffness (measured by modulus of elasticity) and strength (measured by modulus of rupture) increased with cambial age and wood density; whereas, wood strength was also affected by ring width.
The resistance to uprooting is predicted using the estimate of the root-soil plate weight to derive a resistive moment, while the resistance to stem breakage relies on values for the modulus of rupture determined for different species of timber.
In terms of the effect of board constituents, Portland cement showed superior strength and creep properties than Pozzolan cement but irrespective of cement type, boards containing a high wood/cement ratio exhibited a high modulus of rupture (MOR).
The greatest strength increase due to drying is in the ultimate crushing strength, and strength at elastic limit in endwise compression; these are followed by the modulus of rupture, and stress at elastic limit in cross-bending, while the modulus of elasticity is least affected.
In general the bending strength is reduced up to 30% with more reduction at higher temperatures.
The threshold for optimising bending strength and weight is simply at a different level.
An analysis of the true bending strength of steel beams.
It is shown that bending strength increases with decreasing grain diameter.
Characteristic bending strength for species used in Japan.
These same corrugations, however, result in a decrease in longitudinal bending strength.
It is manufactured from selected species, based on density, bending strength, impact resistance and surface finishing characteristics.
Ratio of tensile to bending strength for radiata pine timber.
Some types of wood have extremely tolerant fatigue characteristics while others are brittle, with little bending strength.
Smaller chips, such as the size of 0402, reached in all types of ceramics larger bending strength values.
The bent strength of those fingers.
Bending strength and specific gravity of four exotic pines grown in south-east Queensland. 5p. 31.
The bending strength of sea ice is so low that usually the ice breaks without noticeable change in the vessel's trim.
This is because the bending strength of a tubular structure (such as a bone) is much more efficient relative to its weight.
The latter provides an extra bending strength by bearing upon the compression strength of the tree grain.
Furthermore, factors such as stiffness or shear and torsional strength may be more important than bending strength.
