Transverse strength calculator

Transverse Strength refers to a measure of strength when the load is applied across the longitudinal flow of the grain of a metal. A material's resistance to fracture is termed as transverse strength. Certain impurities such as sulphur have a detrimental effect on the transverse strength. This can be minimized by the inclusion modification process.

    Formula

    Transverse strength of a Material = (8 * P * L) /(3.14 * d3)

    Where,
    P - Breaking load
    L - Average distance
    D - Diameter

    Transverse strength is a measurement of strength when the load is applied across the longitudinal flow of the grain of a material. This advanced online Transverse Strength Calculator is used to calculate the Transverse Strength of a given metal.

    Example:
    Calculate the Transverse Strength for the given details.
    Breaking Load (P): 5
    Average Distance (L): 10
    Diameter (d): 15

    Solution:
    Apply Formula:
    Transverse strength of a Material = (8 * P * L) /(3.14 * d3)
    Transverse strength of a Material = 8*5*10 / (3.14 * 153)
    Transverse strength of a Material = 400 / 3.14* 3375
    Transverse strength of a Material = 400/10597.5
    Transverse strength of a Material = 0.03774475112
