The static and dynamic flexural properties of a wood fiber matrix internally reinforced with continuous glass fibers were investigated. When modelled as a sandwich composite, the static flexural modulus of
Modulus of rupture is an accepted criterion of strength, al- though it is not a true stress because the formula by which it is computed is valid only to the elastic limit.

Modulus of elasticity or Young's modulus is the ratio of stress to strain. Within the elastic range below the proportional limit, this ratio is a constant for a given piece of wood, making it useful in static bending tests for determining the relative stiffness of a board.
Generally flexural modulus of lignocellulosic fibers decreases with increasing moisture content (Bodig and Jayne 1993). Since distilled water has negligible effect on polypropylene, the decrease of flexural modulus of the wood polypropylene composites can be related to decrease in flexural modulus of fibers.

Flexural Strength of Wood. Wood Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants. It has been used for thousands of years for both fuel and as a construction
flexural stress-strain response of the material. The main advantage of a three point flexural test is the ease of the specimen preparation and testing. The flexural modulus is used as an indication of a material’s stiffness when flexed.
In mechanics, the flexural modulus or bending modulus is an intensive property that is computed as the ratio of stress to strain in flexural deformation, or the tendency for a material to resist bending.
Flexural modulus has been determined for a wide variety of structural materials, including metals, wood, glass, concrete, and plastics. It is usually measured at ambient temperature conditions. The properties of some materials, like many plastics, will change with temperature.
Flexural Modulus Lab . Report by: David Luong & Mark Piper . Lab Partners. Michael Cullinan. Herschel Pecker . April 27, 2003. ABSTRACT: A universal testing machine was used to subject a 3.4 in x 5.2 in maple lintel to a concentrated load located at two thirds of its length.
The 4-point flexure test is common for wood and composites. The 4-point test requires a deflectometer to accurately measure specimen deflection at the center of the support span. Test results include flexural strength and flexural modulus.
Modulus elasticity is the ratio of stress to strain of a material in deflection (say in a beam) and is sometimes called ‘Young’s modulus’. The higher the values of Young’s modulus the better. Units: The units are ‘Pascals’ after the late French physicist – Blaise Pascal.
Calculate the bend strength, yield strength and elastic modulus of the specimen Data & Result Discussion For this flexural static strength wood test experiment, we are using three types of wood specimens with same dimension but different material type of wood.
Flexural strength (or the modulus of rupture) is the amount of force an object can take without breaking or permanently deforming. If this is difficult to get your head around, think about a plank of wood supported at two ends.
