What is a flexural area?

Flexural areas. Definition: The parts of the body able to flex. That is, the backs of the knees and the insides of the armpits, elbows and groin. Source: GreenFacts.

Keeping this in view, what is meant by flexural test?

Flexural testing is used to determine the flex or bending properties of a material. Sometimes referred to as a transverse beam test, it involves placing a sample between two points or supports and initiating a load using a third point or with two points which are respectively call 3-Point Bend and 4-Point Bend testing.

What does flexural modulus mean?

In mechanics, the flexural modulus or bending modulus is an intensive property that is computed as the ratio of stress to strain in flexural deformation, or the tendency for a material to resist bending.

What are the flexural members?

A flexural member is a member that is subject to both tension and compression within its depth. A beam is usually a flexural member as the load applied will cause (usually) the bottom flange to go into tension and the top flangle to be compressed.
