Hello everyone,

I need to work out the flexural modulus (E

Support Span(L)= 0.1m

width(b)= 0.01m

depth(d) = 0.01m

Max normal stress σ

Strain (ε

Max force (applied to the center of the beam) = 656 N

Max deflection = 0.0089m

Specimen length = 0.14m

My question is, how do I work out 'm'? m is defined as "The gradient (i.e., slope) of the initial straight-line portion of the load deflection"

Thanks in advance.

I need to work out the flexural modulus (E

_{f}) of a test specimen that is subjected to a 3-point bend test. I know that: E_{f}= L^{3}m/4bd^{3}. I have:Support Span(L)= 0.1m

width(b)= 0.01m

depth(d) = 0.01m

Max normal stress σ
