44:497-503, 1980.

Materials & Methods:

1.Rectangular bars were fabricated of heat cured resin using two trial packs. They were fractured in three point bending and the fracture behavior was recorded.
2.Gaps ranging from 1 to 5 mm. were prepared with butt joints between the fractured edges of the samples. These initial studies indicated that 3 mm. was a suitable gap and subsequent testing was done with gap widths of 3 mm.
3.Seven edge profiles were tested in three point bending after repair with self-curing resin. These profiles were: knife-edge, inverse knife-edge, rounded, lap, rabbet, inverse rabbet, ogee.
The use of rabbet(which is also spelt rabbit, as in joinery) was found at the following address:

This is only my feeling as I know nothing of dentistry (even if I know the dentist well!)
