ASTM C674

Standard Test Methods for Flexural Properties of Ceramic Whiteware Materials

Flexural strength is determined in three-point bending on bars of circular or rectangular cross-section. Testing of ten specimens per type/brand is recommended by ASTM.

$260 per test of 5 specimens (strength)
$595 per test of 5 specimens (strength and elastic modulus)

SIGNIFICANCE AND USE

3.1 These test methods provide a means for determining the modulus of rupture and the modulus of elasticity, which may be required in product specifications.

1. SCOPE

1.1 These test methods cover determination of the modulus of rupture and the modulus of elasticity of fired ceramic whitewares bodies, formed by any fabrication method, and are applicable to both glazed and unglazed test specimens.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The metric equivalents of inch-pound units may be approximate.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
