The flexural strength of the beam depends upon____________

1. Section Modulus of beam
2. Bending Moment
3. Bending moment and Section Modulus of beam
4. None of these

Answer: C– Bending moment and section modulus of beam

## The flexural strength of the beam depends upon the bending moment and section modulus of the beam.

Solution:

As defined by scientists, flexural strength is a material’s resistance to breaking or fracture. Flexural strength reveals the amount of force needed to fracture a test sample with a certain measurement diameter. When this limit is reached, the test specimen cracks.

The flexural strength of the beam is given as

σb = M/Z

Where

• b is the flexural strength of the beam
• M is bending moment acting on the beam
• Z is the section modulus of the beam.
