Abstract: In recent years, advances in material testing equipment caused the determination of mechanical properties by means of three-point bending tests to lose ground in detriment to more accurate tensile tests. However, if components undergo bending deformation in service, the identification of the material's flexural behaviour is essential. The investigated material is a thermoplastic polymer, test specimens being cut in prismatic shapes from injected sheets, which present a variation in properties due to cooling conditions. This paper presents results of three-point bending tests with emphasis on the influence of strain rate and anisotropy on flexural strength and chord modulus. Results show an increase in flexural properties with strain rate and a considerable influence of anisotropy on mechanical properties.
