Three types of bending tests -the 3-point bending test, 4-point bending test and biaxial flexural test- were performed to examine the correlations among the testing methods for dental hard resins (HRs). The results for 5 HRs showed that the bending strengths in descending order were: biaxial flexural strength>3-point bending strength>4-point bending strength. Regression analysis of the test methods indicated that the coefficients of determination were large for all test methods; the largest was for the combination of the 4-point bending test and biaxial flexural tests. The Weibull moduli ranged from 5.42 to 10.61, and a similar descending-order trend was found in the Weibull characteristic strength (S0) of the test methods. The biaxial flexural test method is thus a valid test of the flexural strength of dental hard resins.
