# 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,
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.
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
