Modulus of Rupture - Dry - MORD

This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.


Modulus of Rupture refers to the resistance of a ceramic bar to breaking when supported on two points and subjected to an increasing force at its midpoint.

Default units are psi, otherwise specify. For ball clays, this test is often done on extruded bars composed of 50% ball clay:50% silica.
