I have a force vs displacement graph of an I-beam that is supported by 2 pin joints, and 2 equal forces on top causing it to bend.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am required to find the Elastic modulus of the beam.

How do I do this?

Am I using the equation: E/R = σ/y = M/I, or turning the displacement into strain?

I also have no idea how to do this. Do I find the neutral axis and radius of curvature?

Can someone please help me?!

Thank you.
