I'm trying to figure out how to calculate the modulus of elasticity for a board clamped to a surface plate at one end and free-floating on the other. I've measured the deflection with a 1k weight at the free end of the board. So I've got that data as well as the dimensions of the free-hanging portion of the board.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've done this test with numerous boards of different thicknesses and dimensions and want to compare them in terms of stiffness.
