Modulus of Rupture - Fired - MOR
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.
See fired strength tests for information.
Can be expressed in lbs/square inch, p.f.s.i., kgf/cm2, or MPa.
See Modulus of Rupture with Silica also.
