A review with 10 refs. Detailed problems assocd. with measurement and interpretation of the bend strength of ceramics are presented. The relation between 3- and 4-point bend and biaxial test results is discussed in the light of current theor. understanding. There remain a no. of unresolved aspects, and a new, damage-mechanics approach is discussed.
