Load versus deflection plot and MOE

  1. May 18, 2013 #1
    I should be able to calculate the MOE and MOR after a four point Bending test in lumber wood. I have all the data for develop a plot load versus deflection. The data provided was: load, cylinder, string and bridge. I have been doing the plot using the bridge as deflection, but I didn´t get the typical plot for load versus deflection.Which of them should I take for the deflections in order to calculate the MOE?

    Load (lbs.)
    169.9829

    Cylinder (in.)
    -0.0006

    String (in.)
    0

    Bridge (in.)
    -0.0001

    thanks for your help
