Modulus of rupture

Also found in: Acronyms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
the measure of the force necessary to break a given substance across, as a beam, expressed by eighteen times the load which is required to break a bar of one inch square, supported flatwise at two points one foot apart, and loaded in the middle between the points of support.
