Definitions for "Flexural Strength"
Keywords:  bend, psi, withstand, modulus, pascals
The strength of a material in bending expressed as the tensile stress of the outermost fibers at the instant of failure.
This is also known as bending strength. It describes how much of a non-moving load can be applied before a bar yields or breaks. Units are normally thousands of pounds per square inch. (10 psi) - Mega Pascals (mPa). Higher numbers mean that material is stronger and can withstand a heavier load.
The stress, usually in pounds per square inch (psi), a specimen will withstand when subjected to a bending moment.
