Flexural Modulus and Strength
A universal testing machine (UTM) is used to determine and report flexural modulus. Test specimens can be molded or cut from sheets or plates, as per specifications. Sample is placed on span. The UTM crosshead with single point is lowered until just above specimen. The test is performed at a constant velocity corresponding to the required strain rate. Load and corresponding specimen deflection are recorded. Five replicates are performed.

Flexural Modulus, Flexural Strength at Yield. This data appears in Matereality as Flexural Properties.
Number of times this test is repeated: 5
6 flex bars [details]
Flexural properties are especially useful for quality control and specification purposes.
