Modulus of rupture

Nominal stress at fracture in a bend test or torsion test. In bending, modulus of rupture is the bending moment at fracture divided by the section modulus. In torsion, modulus of rupture is the torque at fracture divided by the polar section modulus. See also modulus of rupture in bending and modulus of rupture in torsion.
