Plastic Section Modulus = Zp = 5 * 10⁻⁴ m³

Shape factor k = Zp / S = 1.2

So S = elastic section modulus = Zp / k = 4.17 * 10⁻⁴ m³

Plastic Moment Capacity = Mp = 120 kN-m

Fy = Yield strength of the material or Yield stress of the material

Mp = Fy * Zp

Fy = yield stress = 120 * 10³ /5 * 10⁻⁴ = 240 * 10⁶ N/m²

= 240 N / mm² as mm = 10⁻³ m

Shape factor k = Zp / S = 1.2

So S = elastic section modulus = Zp / k = 4.17 * 10⁻⁴ m³

Plastic Moment Capacity = Mp = 120 kN-m

Fy = Yield strength of the material or Yield stress of the material

Mp = Fy * Zp

Fy = yield stress = 120 * 10³ /5 * 10⁻⁴ = 240 * 10⁶ N/m²

= 240 N / mm² as mm = 10⁻³ m
