## Transverse Strength Calculator

Transverse strength calculator is used to calculate the transverse strength of a material.

## What is meant by transverse strength?

A measurement of a stone bar's ability to support a load at its center while being supported at both ends. Strength of a specimen assessed in transverse bending; often referred to as breaking load and typically interchangeable with rupture modulus

D = 8PL / πd3

where

• L = Average Distance
• d = Diameter

## How to calculate the transverse strength?

Example 1

Calculate the transverse strength when breaking load = 12, average distance = 15, and diameter = 20.

Solution

Transverse Strength (D) =?

P = 12, L = 15, d = 20

D = 8PL / πd3

By putting Values in the above formula:

D = 8*12*15 / 3.14*(20)3

D = 1440 / 3.14*8000

D = 1440 / 25120

D = 0.0573248

Example 2:

Calculate the transverse strength when breaking load = 32, average distance = 12, and diameter = 42.

Solution

Transverse Strength (D) =?

P = 32, L = 12, d = 42

D = 8PL / πd3

By putting Values in the above formula:

D = 8*32*12 / 3.14*(42)3

D = 3072 / 3.14*74088

D = 3072 /232636.32

D = 0.0132052
