This example works from first principle sectional analysis of a rectangular steel section to compute:
-Elastic Moment and Elastic Section Modulus
-Plastic Moment and Plastic Section Modulus
-The Shape Factor
There are two followup videos for this that compute the same properties for:
-Wide Flange Section
This video was created as part of the CE 3063 Structural Steel Design 1 course at the University of New Brunswick.
