Flexural Strength

A property of a solid that indicates its ability to withstand bending. It is most commonly used to describe flexure properties of cast iron and wood products.

An alternate term is Modulus of Rupture or Bending Strength.

Flexural yield strength is reported instead of flexural strength for materials that do not crack in the flexure test.
