    What about when they only give the shear modulus for a material

    Mostly the Flexural modulus and Tensile modulus are around the same. But the are not always exchangeable in FEM. For example when you calculate a product of PCV. The difference in flexural modulus and tensile modulus is approx 17% So before starting a FEM in plastic, double check the data.

    Going in and out of design and “clerical engineering”, I find that I need to review many of the fundamental lessons on strength of materials to be sure I still understand things. I found this blog to be refreshing and very easy to understand. I will make an effort to follow you more for simulation related issues!!!
