## Summary:

- I need to figure out how much weight a 96"x48"x6" EPS foam board can hold when laid flat and supported at both ends. Tensile psi: 92. Compressive psi: 52.

I need to figure out how much weight a 96"x48"x6" EPS foam board can hold when laid flat and supported at both ends(96" span). Tensile psi: 92. Compressive psi: 52. I believe these figures are for 10 percent deformation. I would like to support temporary 200lb loads at any point on the span, with little to no bending. These would not be point loads so am not worried about "local" deformation. If you can tell me how to calculate this myself I would be grateful.
